    Where was your CX-5 produced?

    The CX-5 is produced at 4 plants currently: Hiroshima, Japan, Hofu, Japan, Kulim, Malaysia, and Nanjing, China.

    There are two different VIN decoders. Vote in the poll!

    1. Good for showing build details: https://www.mazdaforum.com/forum/vindecoder.php

    2. Good for showing build plant location: https://www.vindecoderz.com/EN/Mazda/CX-5 (enter VIN at top right)

    My 2019 CX-5 AWD is built in Hiroshima, Japan.

    Arrow Where was your CX-5 produced?

    I believe all CX-5’s for US market are assembled in Hiroshima, Japan. The only exception is when Mazda’s Hiroshima plant got damaged by Typhoon a couple of years ago. During that period of time the CX-5 for US market were from Hofu, Japan, for about a couple of months.

    I don't believe this, mine was made in Hofu Plant - I know it because at times the build quality screams back at me - Ho .... fu

    Mine was built in Hiroshima, Japan. Should check it for residual radiation.

    Those sites don't recognize my VIN. My car was shipped to Colombia could that be why?

    You're all spoiled rotten (including me too) the car is also assembled in China, Maleysia and Russia. I think we have it pretty good that our cars come from Japan.

    They make them in Malaysia as well.

    Nothing against the Malaysian plant, but I'd rather have a Japanese built one simply because the factory is much more established.

    That's interesting.

    The article states that production in Malaysia began in August 2017. Their 2018 Fiscal Year ended March 31, 2018.

    Those countries I quoted were cited as "Major Production Facilities." When I go back & read the fine print, they list "Mazda Malaysia" under Asian production facilities.

    Here's the entire list:

    That VIN look up is nutty. I entered the 17 digit sequence and the page said my CX-5 that I bought last month was built in 1990 in Hiroshima. Maybe they meant my car is a Navajo but even that didn't come out until 1991. Oh well I must say my car has held up awfully well...in fact I would even call it "like new". Recycling VIN numbers?

    An aside: Mazdas were assembled in Colombia by Compañía Colombiana Automotriz (CCA) beginning in 1983 with the B-1600 pickup. I had a 2006 BT-50 4x4 (pictured), great truck! They sold them as a cab & chassis to have a stake bed installed after market. CCA ceased Mazda production the end of April in 2014. The plant located in Bogota had an interesting history having assembled Peugeots in 1968 then Fiat, Fiat/Polski, Zastava, Mitsubishi, Willis and finally Mazda and Ford. There you go. Some history you never wanted to know ha ha.
