Did a little more research..

The first 3 characters are the WMI, or World Manufacturer Identifier.
1YV = Mazda North American Operations

The 4th character identifies your restraint system:
F = no side/curtain airbags
H = side/curtain airbags

The 5th and 6th characters identify the product line:
P8 = Mazda 6

The 7th character identifies the chassis:
0 = sedan
2 = wagon
4 = hatchback

The 8th character identifies the engine:
C = 2.3L I-4
D = 3.0L V6

The 9th character is the checksum digit. It is calculated via an algorithm using the other 16 digits as input.

The 10th character is the year:
3 = 2003
4 = 2004
5 = 2005

The 11th character is the location of the plant where your car was built:
5 = Flat Rock, Michigan

The 12th through 17th characters are the production sequence number. Each vehicle within a given model year will have a unique number.

Very cool information on the VIN. Thanks.

We have an '04 Wagon in Squall Blue. Is there information out there on the net that anyone knows about with production figures, by year, for body styles for the 6, and perhaps an exterior paint color unit produced # or % breakout ?

I am sure Mazda has this on a data base of some sort for marketing purposes, but maybe it is on the www also for general viewing ....

Thanks.
