Build year

Recommended Posts

Good day,

I'm the fresh owner of Auris TS and I want to ask. Is there a way to check car's built year? Like exact month and year? The car is new.

Thank you very much.

Good morning and thank you.

I have a small problem with this method. I have number 0 on the 10th digit of my VIN number. What could that mean? The link states following: 

  • O – Doesn’t exist. Neither zero or the letter “O” are used as the 10th digit.

Would have thought your Toyota dealer (service?) would be able to provide the year of manufacture from the VIN, although not necessarily the month.

Ok, thank you. I thought, that it should be the same, even more since it's practically british car.

Who did you speak to at the dealer - sales or service?

It can be interesting looking at date marks on components. The Battery on my Auris is dated 02/10 (Feb 2010) and I took delivery in the third week in Feb. 

Hard to believe a dealer doesn't have the means to instantly find a cars build date, particularly if its a new car and they sold it.

I can tell you the DAY it was built from the VIN, just go and see one of the parts boys or PM the VIN number to me, it will be Tuesday before i can do that for you as I am out of here for the weekend :lol:

Thank you. I will send it when I get to the VIN. I don't remember it.

Sales

I doubt whether Sales would have the know how to decode the VIN. Would really need to be Service or Parts.

Anyway, Devon Aygo, who works for a Toyota dealer, has asked you to send your VIN to him via personal message, so he may be able to provide the info you're seeking.
