Put the VIN into www.etis.ford.com? Should be a bit that tells you the territory, for example mine says:

Territory: (+)"GB"

Surely that only tells you for which country the car was made for.

I'm pretty certain that European Focci were built in Portugal. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

You can tell which factory your car was built in from the VIn number.

I did this breakdown for the fiesta section of the board.Fiestas are built in Germany and Spain.

The basics are exactly the same for any car made by ford europe.

I will try to get a focus breakdown if any one wants one.

Your Vin will look somethng like this


WFOJXXGAJJ9R12345


WFO means ford europe
J is 5 door (G is 3 door)
x
x these two are not used on cars
G is for Germany (location of factory)(W=spain)
A This is the factory ,within the country (A=cologne,P=Valencia)
J This is the model type (Fiesta)
J this is a check repeat of letter 4 in the sequence
9 this indicates built in 2009
R This is the month of build
12345 the12,345th fiesta to be built at the indicated factory,in the month shown

The 2 letters after XX in the vin should be on this list and will tell you the factory your car came from,if you have any different codes (eg older cars) please let me know and I will work them out.

Mine was built in Valencia then. B)

Strangely enough, after a bit more digging, my Ford Ka from years back was also built in Valencia!!
