First digit of the VIN will tell you. 1 or 3 = USA, 2 = CanadaJ= JapanK = Koreaetc.

Look on the door jam or in the glove box....I have found the origin of some of my vehicles there in the past. (My Dakota was made in Warren City,MI and My current Chevy was screwed together in Mexico.)But just taking a guess......I would say it (your Accord) was made in Marysville,Oh

Autozone and all the other car parts places sell shop manuals with all the details for you to find out your answer. or you can give them your vin # at the carparts place and they should be able to give you it origin
