Hello, I'm new to the forum and looking at getting into a Mazda 3 S Grand Touring Hatch. I will be leaving a 2013 VW Jetta GLI. Reason for the switch is primarily all the squeaks, creaks and rattles. Reading some of the threads on here makes me think I'm going from one disappointment to another. My hope is that if I get into a later VIN car, some of the bugs will have been addressed. Is there a rule of thumb for after this VIN number things should be "OK". The car I'm looking at is 1195821. Is there a way to tell the manufacturer date from the VIN?
