Picked this up off another forum.
When your car was built.
Look in the trunk.
Remove the cover over your spare tire.
In there you will find a tag with something like
S197 .......
Built 05/22/05 Shift 2
Mine was on the cover itself.
Now you know.

Shift 1 Dayshift
2 Swingshift
3 Graveyard
By statistics shift 2 is the better.
But statistics are misleading too.
They dont take into account days may have started the vehical.
Same with graves, swings may have started the vehical.
Graves tends to be starters of vehicals and days will finish.
Graves is usually only small shift and tends to work problems rather than production.
In other words...
It dont mean a thing.

If it's the same one I found, that's not you rcar's build date.
This one has two bar codes on it and all the other info mentioned. But the big hint... a part number.
That's the p/n label for the spare tire cover. Made in Canada, BTW.

That is a possibilty.
Further research will be needed.
