:confused I am curious how some dealers have obtained an actual build date on a vehicle for their clients. I thought you actually had to have a VIN first to get a build date? HOw is it some of us have build dates that are very specific and others are very generalized like mine? It would be very helpful to find out just how this process occurs, don't you think? Mine is a build date of Nov. and deliver in Dec. but no specific date is available.
