Checking Where Your Individual TLX Was Made?

Vehicles have an identifier called a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).  This exclusive number will tell you where your specific Integra was made.

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

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

The first digit tells you the location where the car was made.  Below are the options you are most likely see as the first digit of your TLX VIN:

  • L = China
  • 1,4,5 = United States

The VIN sticker usually also explicitly states the county where the car was manufactured.  Look for either China or the U.S. to be listed somewhere on the VIN sticker.

Currently, all TLX models and engines are produced in the U.S. at the Marysville Auto Plant.
