VIN is a unique code, a 17-digit number that is used by the automotive services to track recalls, registrations, warranty claims, thefts, and insurance coverage for an individual vehicle. It is listed on a small tag, usually located on the driver’s side of the dashboard, visible when looking through the windshield from outside.
The VIN number isn’t just a random string of numbers and letters. Each digit or group of digits refers to something about the vehicle’s manufacture or design.
Characters 1-3 identify the car manufacturer.
Characters 4-8 outline the vehicle model, body style, engine type, and more.
Character 9 is a code completed by the manufacturer to confirm the accuracy of the VIN number.
Character 10 indicates the model year of the vehicle.
Character 11 reveals which plant assembled the car.
Characters 12-17 is the car’s serial number (for high-volume manufacturers).
There are a number of scenarios in what ways the VIN number is essential that we will discuss below:
If you want to buy a used car - Dealerships and car-buying websites provide vehicle history reports that you need to know before buying it. This report is taken by a VIN number.
If you want to know if a car has any recalls - really crucial if your car’s manufacturer has issued any safety recalls or if a car you’re considering buying has any major recalls
If your car is stolen or failed in an accident - It’s a good idea to have your VIN decoded in case your car (parts of your car) is stolen or faced with an accident.
