I'm new to the forum and had a basic question, how do I find out if my 2013 Rav4 is Jap made or Canadian. I'm ready to install new fog lights on on my LE and apparently the installation varies depending on where it was built.
VIN starts with JT = Japan final assembly
VIN starts with 2T = Canada final assembly
Don't think they're assembled anywhere else at least for NA.
Some bias toward Japanese assembled vehicles, but the reasons would vary from person to person and their experience. Some recalls are assembly area specific (e.g.Corolla gas pedal) but recalls can be from any region.
