The only given, like you said, is no 11's or 12's work, otherwise as you said, it's basically a crap shoot.

well this was from the Nissan CPO site. Most other dealers only supply them on demand. Its nice to be able to click on links and get the basics. This is a good way to find out if the car was purchased or leased.

Worked on my 2016 US car, thanks! These links are gold when you buy a used car and want to know how it was built, so when I was wrenching on old Volvo's and VW's we used to troll around the interweb for VIN decoders but this is so much better. The only manufacturer I've seen that exposed this fairly easily was Ford, but I guess most must do it to perform service functions and just sell cars.

Great find thanks!
