Where Are Honda Cars Made?

Honda Motor Company was co-founded in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan, in the late 1940s as a motorcycle manufacturing company. When Honda grew and expanded to the United States in the 1950s, they began to create and make cars.

How to Tell Where Your Honda is Made

Fortunately, the United States manufacturers many of the Hondas driven today. The vehicle identification number (VIN) will confirm where your Honda was made. You can typically find your VIN under your hood or on your driver’s side door. A VIN beginning with the number one was made in the United States while a VIN starting with the letter “J” was manufactured in Japan. For more information about your VIN, use a free lookup service like faxvin.com.
