Question Canadian or American made...how do you tell?

I was just wondering if any of you know how I can tell if my Jeep was built in Canada or America?

Your VIN number should tell you where it was produced. 1 or 4 is US 2 is Canada.

Quote:
The vehicle identification number is divided into four parts:

* World Manufacturer's Identification (WMI - three characters)
* Vehicle Description Section (VDS - five characters)
* The VIN Accuracy Check Digit
* Vehicle Identification Section (VIS - eight characters)

World Manufacturer’s Identification (WMI)

The first character in the WMI sequence represents the country where the vehicle was manufactured. Countries like the United States (1 or 4), Canada (2) and Mexico (3) are represented by numbers while other countries such as Germany (W), Italy (Z) and Japan (J) are represented by letters.
