A manual free Acura VIN decoder matches up each of the 17-digits with a corresponding value. The first three digits, which are the World manufacturer Identifier, reveal the country where the Acura was manufactured, who manufactured it, and the division, respectively. The specific Acura model, body type, transmission, safety and restrain system, and engine are indicated in the fourth through eight digits of the Acura VIN decoding.
The ninth digit is a safeguard number, meaning it is a “check” digit that identifies any possibly fraudulent VINs. The tenth and eleventh digit reveal, respectively, the year and assembly plant for the Acura VIN decoding.
The last six digits are the Acura’s unique serial number, which is based upon its order in production. For example, if the last six digits were 710091, this would be the 710,091th car to come off the assembly line for that model in that assembly facility.
Or, if the final six digits are 000001, this would be the very first vehicle of the year to come off the assembly line for that model. In a charity auction, the very first 2017 Acura NSX to be produced, indeed ending with the VIN 000001, sold for $1.2 million, with all of the funds donated to Camp Southern Ground and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
