When was your 9-2x built?

My car was built in June 2004, looks like it's about to have a birthday.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

I'm guessing you can get this from the VIN, but I have no idea how to breakdown the parts of it to find out.  If not through the VIN, then how do you know the date of "birth"?  smile  I'm curious to find out mine as well, seems like another reason to celebrate, hey I'm always up for a party.

When did you get your 9-2x?  What would that be termed?  Anniversary?  LOL

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

The manufacturer build date is on the drivers side doorway,  its on a little metal plaque towards the bottom.

I bought mine about a month ago when this deal first started.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

If I can figure out the VIN numbers, I'd like to be able to write a little web app that lets you put in your VIN and tells you what # your car was off the assembly line.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

I was just on the phone with Saab regarding registering for the owners website and asked her that exact question.  Unfortunately she can decipher Saab VIN's but not Saaburu VINS.  I guess they have a different numbering strategy.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

09/04 for me.

Got mine in 05/05, so 8 months just sitting there.  I'm guessing it wasn't too lonely with all the other 9-2x cars there as well.  smile 

It seems from the amount of "just got mine" threads around,  there are more going out the door now, well at least in the US. I'm guessing the discounts help, Heh.   Still have only seen one other one here in Ottawa though, a Black linear.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

Try this:

http://www.cars101.com/subaru/vin.html

For me position 7 is a "2" which this site translates to Legacy Sedan/Legacy Wagon/Outback????  Maybe since it is a Saab they are reusing this code since positions 4 and 5 indicated that it is a Imprezza Sport Wagon.  Just a guess.

Everything else seems to jive.  Don't really know what to do with the sequential production number.  I'm wondering if this is taking into account the actual number of Subaru Imprezza's built as well?

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

Mine was dated 5/2004, so it has been sitting around for a whole YEAR!  No wonder GM is trying to unload these.  Perhaps red just doesn't sell like the metallics.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

Nope, mine had been on the lot since 05/04, too. You can see why GM really needed to get these off the lots...they just weren't moving (and for what they were asking...makes sense).

7/2004 as well.  I know mine was sitting on the lot for a while.  The inside of the rims had rust stains from the rotors.

I think it's a 1-2 week trip across the big pond.    More if they have to go to an eastern port vs LA or SF.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

I noticed the build date imprint (it's on the B pillar, open the driver door and look down at the metal plate) on mine today... 03/04... i think I have the oldest one so far

(lets reopen this 2-year-old thread)

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

02/2004!!! That makes me the old geezer, huh?

This is exactly what I was trying to accomplish with my VIN thread about a month ago. The last five digits of your VIN indicate the order in which your car was built. In my case, it's 50060, meaning that my car was the 60th 9-2x built.

So the plate indicates the month/year, but the VIN will be a little mor specific.

Re: When was your 9-2x built?

I thought there was another thread with the same topic, because i remember posting my assembly date, but I don't see it in this thread...anyhow, mine is stamped 08/04

And my b-day is Aug, 4, so it makes it look like it was made on my b-day, just for me  biggrin
