Where are Hondas made?

I’m thinking about purchasing a Honda with my partner, but during my research, I realized that I don’t know much about Hondas at all. Where are Hondas made?

Getting to know your make before you buy a model is a great plan of action! Hondas are made in Japan, Mexico, and the United States. Depending on the vehicle, each Honda is typically manufactured within the country where it will be sold.
When you do decide on a Honda you’d like to take home, you can actually check and decode your Honda VIN to get a more specific idea of your vehicle’s origin.
You can usually find your Honda VIN in the driver’s door jamb, attached to the dashboard, or stamped on the engine compartment. Once you track it down, here are the digits you’ll want to focus on:
  • Digit one: This decodes the Honda’s country of origin. Commonly you’ll see 1, 4, or 5 for America.
  • Digit eleven: This decodes the Honda’s assembly plant location. A, B, and L indicate U.S. plants in Marysville, Ohio; Lincoln, Alabama; and East Liberty, Ohio, respectively.
Preparing for your upcoming Honda purchase by researching the brand shows that you’re a responsible buyer. Finding quality car insurance to protect your investment is just as important—and Jerry can help!
