Q: Manufacture date for a Mazda 3 Revolution 2016

asked by on

Hello, I just bought my Mazda two months ago. The dealer told me that the 'manufacture date' was May 2016. But a service in Germany told me their Mazda system was produced September 2014. The VIN says nothing about this date. How can I figure it out?

Thank you

Hi, thanks for writing in, I’d be happy to help you. If you look at the sticker in the driver door jam, you will see the date the vehicle was made. It will give you the month and year.
