Really? I'd say there's a pretty good chance. That was the only consistently negative thing I read in most of the reviews. They might decide that there aren't enough manual fans to make it worthwhile, but I wouldn't be surprised if they add a 6 speed manual option on the SX.
I'm definitely waiting for the 2012's before I purchase my EX-T. Looks like mine will be built in West Point, GA. If nothing else, maybe it'll give Hyundai/Kia enough time to resolve the left-pull issue, which is why I'm waiting. Mind you, I don't trust a slow-speed, 10 minute urban test drive to adequately assess the car's steering composure. I'm also not convinced that no pull now means no pull later on. Of course, I could do without the Nexens as well, but I tend to agree with Roger- not much change, if any, for 2012.
Although, I read the 2011 Hyundai i45(2010 i45 = (with some market-conscious tuning and option differences) 2011Sonata) will receive second-year changes, most notably in the suspension. In fact, the reviewer said it basically "drives like the Optima" now. Perhaps these changes will find their way into the 2012 U.S. Sonata demonstrating Hyundai/Kia's willingness to continually improve their vehicles. Here's hoping...and here's the article: 2011 Hyundai i45 Review | Car Advice | Reviews
I don't think you'll see any backup sensors as they have the backup camera as an option. I think the only changes we'll see for next model year will be different packages provided.
Well that's pretty vague. And I agree there will be different packages provided which will include back up sensors to accompany the backup camera, mudflaps, and daytime drls. And they will make the trunk tray standard on the SX and a bright blue light in the glove box shall illumitate a button which reads "Do Not Press". This is the button which allows the turbo wastegate to open at 23psi, and recommends that one have at least 100 octane gasoline when they press that particular button
