Every vehicle's (no matter which make/model or what country its sold) country of manufacture can be determined by the first two letters in the Vehicle Identification Number. For vehicles made in Japan, the first two letters should be within the range "JA-JT", South Africa "AA-AH", Thailand "ML-MR", Australia "6A-6W"

More info from the Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIN
