Is there a way to decode the vin and get an approx build date? Or how can I find this out? Thanks, Ed
It can tell you what year it was built but not the month/date. If you have your Window Sticker, the info you want is on it. Have you checked the label on the driver's door?
The build date is in the lower right of the Window Sticker. Mine shows 1201910091452 which means it was built on October 9th 2019. The date as per your highlight, shows 10 02 19 which is a day later.
The build date is in the lower right of the Window Sticker.
What's your VIN?On my Window Sticker the 'Blend Date' at the top is the same as the date in the lower right corner 1201910091452. The date which is circled in post #6 is a day later which corresponds with the Detailed Specs. printout I received from the dealer. It shows Production Date as being October 10, 2019. However, the date on the sticker/label on the door jam is the same as that shown in the lower right corner of the 'sticker'.
