Are you trying to determine the assembly date or the date of first sale? – mikes Jul 1 '13 at 20:02

You can't find the vehicle registration date from the VIN, as the VIN is a manufacturer's number. You'll need to apply to the relevant registration authority for the country/state the vehicles are registered in.

It is typically on the sticker on the drivers side door or on a sticker on the door jamb. If it is missing the dealer can determine it by the VIN
