VIN Question

Have a quick question for you all. If your vehicle has a VIN number, does that mean it was built already? Thanks in advance!!

VIN's were assigned to the cars before they are built. It keeps track of all the option codes. I remember that from visiting Martinrea.

However, by the time you get the VIN, if you got it from your dealer or the tracking system your car is already built.

I am not sure what it is now, but when I got my car, if you had stripes you may need to add 10 days before it gets shipped.

If her Equinox is built in Oshawa, you'll both have to go to BBOMG!

VIN number and RPO sticker in the vehicle should tell you.

I believe the VIN starting with the number 2 indicates the country code of Canada.

Yes but the problem is that both Equinox plants are in Canada.
