Hi!
Does anyone know how/have a link to breakdown our CT's VIN? I would be interested in finding out what number my car is off the line, when it was produced, etc!

My last 5 digits are 20409 so that doesn't sound right.

As a reference my wife's car is # 6943 manufactured in January 2011.

She took delivery March 16, 2011.

Like I said, mine is in the 9000's and my build date is also 2/11. I'm having a hard time believing they built 3000+ in one month.

Maybe the number is padded at the end and mine is really 900 and your's is ~1200. That would make a little more sense.

Interesting! I would be interested in getting some confirmation on this one. We can even start compiling a list of the VINs from earliest to most current, with each owner's location!

I just realized something. On the door sticker with the VIN, there's a number in the lower right corner. Mine's 900 something. If I'm not mistaken, Lexus uses that number to label the sequential number for that car in that specific line (CT 200h). The last 6 digits of the VIN are where your car was in your assembly line, which could have included other Lexus models. Which plant were our cars made in? I know it wasn't CT exclusive, so that would account for the high last 6 digits, since it includes other Lexus models in the sequential numbering. If everyone could please check their driver's side door sticker with the VIN and list the number on the lower right corner with their build date, that would be awesome.
