About VIN Numbers

All cars and light trucks built after 1981 have a unique 17-character number that contains valuable information about that vehicle's history. This number is called the vehicle identification number (VIN#).

The VIN is the record of everything that will ever happen to that car. It displays a car’s uniqueness and manufacturer and provides a method to trace your car from the factory to the junk yard. Your VIN can be used to track recalls, registrations, warranty claims, thefts and insurance coverage.

Look over the car and make sure that all the VIN numbers you can find are the same within the car. The VIN number is normally engraved or on a sticker in numerous places in the car (inside the doors, the dash, the trunk, engine, and/or quarter panels).

States use the VIN to track a cars status. Protect yourself by thoroughly checking the VIN on the used car you want to buy.

The locations of the vehicle identification number (VIN) vary but the following are the common places to find them:

  • Firewall of the vehicle
  • Radiator Support Bracket
  • Dash by windshield
  • Left hand inner wheel arch
  • Steering column
  • Guarantee & Maintenance Book
  • Machined Pad on front of engine
  • Drivers door or post on passenger side
  • Component parts as listed above -eg- engine, frame, etc.

Later model years most common locations of the VIN:

  • Left instrumentation panel
  • Dash plate by window
  • Drivers door or post
