How to be Certain It's Union-made In the U.S.A.

If you're looking at one of the new cars, light trucks or vans that are both union-made in the U.S. and imported (see above), you can determine where it was assembled by checking two labels that each new vehicle sold in the U.S. is required by law to display.
Simplest and quickest is the "Parts Content Information" sheet that usually is posted on one of the vehicle's windows.
It lists, among other things, the location of the "final assembly point" of each vehicle.
The second label to check is the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
If the first character of the 17-character VIN is a 1, a 4, or a 5, the vehicle was assembled in the U.S.
The VIN is stamped into a small metal plate attached to each vehicle's dashboard on the driver's side, often near the junction of the dashboard and the windshield.
Here is the meaning of some of the other first characters of the VIN: "2," Canada; "3," Mexico; "6," Australia; "9," Brazil; "J," Japan; "K," Korea.
