28. I am almost certain it is a US build ........
..... My wife is out with the car right now and won't be back until tonight.

I have no clue about the VIN, but someplace/somehow when we bought it we knew it was a US car. Ohio, as I recall.

My DIL has a CRV (2002? 2003?). These, we are told, are the only Hondas sold around here that are still made in Japan.

BTW, I recently bought a new(ish) car (Maxima). I looked at a 2008 used Accord coupe (which I really liked). It has this black contact paper on the door pillar that was starting to peel. My brother has an 05 coupe. I asked him if his contact paper was coming off. He said it was, so he peeled it back and left it at the underlying chrome. That just seems cheesy.
