How do I determine the build date of my new Acadia? I realize its within the VIN, but what is the logic?

The build date is not really coded in the VIN, but it does indicate the model, year, and construction sequence, etc. of the vehicle. If you look on your driver door jamb it will indicate the month and year the vehicle was built. However, using the VIN# you can pull up the actual day it was built if you have access to the GMVIS (GM Vehicle Inquiry System). I could pull it up if you want, I'd just need the last 8 digits of the VIN.

Thanks! You show the build date of 03/17/08 and I am supposed to take delivery tomorrow. I like the idea of getting a 'fresh" one.

Thanks again,

MIKE

GeoHawk,
Thanks for doing this.

Looks like mine got built on 3/11/08, now i just hope that got those water leaks figured out before that date.

GeoHawk, could you check out the build date of my denali (BJ234210). I just purchased it, but the dealer had been driving it for a while, so I'm wondering if it was one of the earliest produced, and wondering if that should be something to be concerned about. Thanks!

well see if Geohawk can get it.
There was another site I used to get VIN info, build dates, service etc...
But GM actually contacted the 2 guys (in totally diff location- one in the US the other in Canada) that were providing info and told them to stop- due to some copyright stuff...

Since they also work at dealerships-- im sure their jobs were on the line too...
Maybe Geo can do one here and there....

The door sticker will give you month and year, but not the actual day of the month

I think it was Sep 10, but that's purely a guess ;D
