Checking Where Your Specific MDX Was Made?

All vehicles have a Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) which is a unique identifier for every car.  The VIN will help you drill down to where your specific MDX was made.

You can locate your car’s VIN in many different locations:

  • On the bottom left side of the windshield,
  • Underneath the hood of your car,
  • On your car’s title,
  • On your insurance card,
  • Inside the driver’s side door.

The first digit denotes the county where the car was made.  Below are the options you are most likely see as the first digit of your MDX VIN:

  • 1,4,5 = USA
  • 2 = Canada

Most VIN stickers will also denote the county where your car is made.  So, look for either United States or Canada to be listed somewhere on the sticker if you can’t remember the country codes.


As of 2022, the Acura MDX is exclusively made in the United States.  Although Honda is a Japanese manufacturer, the MDX has never actually been made in Japan, it has only been made in Canada and the U.S.
