Vin Decoder (Find out about your Focus)

Hey guys,

I was surfing around and I stumbled upon the Ford Vin Decoder.

It tells you all kinds of stuff about your car.

If you want to know where your focus was made and what not go here:

https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp


I thought you guys might like to spend a few minutes and learn a little more about your car.

Hope you like :-)

Nice site, good find!

And don't worry about it being assembled in Mexico, what does it matter if blue collar Mexicans or Americans operated some robots that bolted the Focus together? As far as I know, hatches were assembled in MX and sedans in the US (not sure on wagons) but there've been no structural differences for the past 5 years so it's clearly a non-issue.

Well not to stir this back up again, but we've discussed this where the car was made issue a little bit before in the SVT forum... the European ST170 is basically the same car as the SVT Focus, except it's made in Germany. The SVT Focus, like other North American hatches, is made in Mexico. Frankly, I'd rather have a car made in Germany before a car made in Mexico. And that's all I have to say about that.

I looked mine up, but it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, to be honest.
