I have an 05 that I purchased in November. I would like to know when it was made and all that. Does anyone know how to break down the VIN to figure all that good juicy info out?

Was curious about the chalk marks and crawled under my car....found two green recgtangular labels on the inner sides of the wheel wells that say "GM Pilot Material" and give an address of a plastics Co. in Mich. Anyone else find something like this?

Reed?

There is a document called a "certificate of origin", which was included in the dealer's delivery package from the manufacturer. Most people never see the certificate of origin as it is tendered to DMV by the dealer when the dealer orders your plates. What happens to the certificate of origin once in the hands of the DMV is anyone's guess. It is never returned to the car owner, that I know.
However, the certificate of origin certifies the build date and time. At the time of purchase, it is a simple matter to obtain a photocopy of your certificate of origin. Thereafter, if you are lucky your state DMV may retain a microfiche copy. If you are really lucky, your dealer may have made a copy for his files.

I have a scan of mine (both sides), don't recall if the prod date was on it. Had it in my posession for a while too ;)
