What if my VIN cannot be decoded?

If the VIN code has been entered incorrectly, it may not be decoded or understood by UDI. If one cannot understand the VIN code on their UDI card due to poor navigation of the system, please visit an authorized dealership immediately to have it decoded.

How does a vehicle identification number (VIN) work?

The VIN is the unique number assigned to every vehicle at production. It’s the DNA of your car! Every aspect – including color, options, and equipment – is recorded in this 13 digit number. Any broker can take one or more digits off to make up an arbitrary “sale price”. That’s called phantom VIN; it doesn’t exist at all. Unlike used vehicle auctions where there are no checks on background information (the only real live market!), we actually validate every single identification point in our algorithm. VIN is designed to identify all production units for cars, trucks, and other automotive products. The VIN number can be looked up on the U.S. Department of Motor Vehicles website by entering the vehicle’s last name along with its license plate number. For FCA vehicles, the search can be done by entering the VIN number or the name of your specific vehicle. However it’s good to remember not all cars with North America/North American standards will have an ‘FCA’ prefix on their chassis numbers.

How can I locate my VIN number?

The Vin number can be located on or near your driver’s side dashboard/console (usually in extremely small print) or in the door wedge on the driver’s side. You can also find the VIN number on the insurance policy, anjd vehicle registration documents. VINs are normally not exposed while driving since there is no physical access provided for easy identification while behind the wheel.

What is the purpose of a VIN check report?

The VIN check report contains information about the vehicle’s make, model, VIN number, date of manufacture, vehicle identification number (VIN), weight, horsepower, fuel type/capacity, the EPA mileage estimate based on current gas prices per gallon, and overall odometer reading.

Who is a Vin check report for?

A VIN check report is used by both buyers and sellers of used cars who can benefit from a vehicle history report. When selling your car, you may want to have a vehicle history report on hand to present to a buyer. You should run a VIN check before buying a used car to make sure it did not have major problems in the past.

The Vin report is also an important tool to be used by law enforcement for the investigation of an occurrence, or person involved in criminal activity.

What information is included in a free vehicle history report?

A free vehicle’s history report lists all the key information about an individual car, including if there have been any accidents, how many owners it has had, and whether the previous owner was charged with a crime.

A used car’s history and condition are presented in this report: vehicle specifications, equipment details, and the NMVTIS report. Furthermore, it includes value-added features such as market value, fuel efficiency, safety ratings, a checklist of defects and recalls, and insurance information.

How to decode a VIN number?

You may be wondering what the letters and numbers in your vehicle’s VIN stand for.   You can look up and receive an instant report on your vehicle’s manufacturer, model, make, and year by entering the 17-character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) above. This information is provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) based on the data the manufacturers submit to NHTSA. Lookups using the VIN Decoder are intended for vehicles manufactured since 1981. Probably 11 characters will be located on a VIN made before 1981.  

VIN Digits – Decoding a VIN Number:

The unique VIN of each car is made up of 17 numbers or characters. To help you better understand your automobile, below is what each numeral symbolizes.

9: Brazil

J: Japan

W: Germany

S: England

L: Taiwan

K: Korea

Y: Sweden

V: Europe

Z: Italy

G: General Motors (Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Buick)

H: Honda

Digit 4: Model-specific safety features and information

Digit 5: The vehicle’s serial number

Bodystyle and body type are denoted by the numbers 6 and 7.

8th digit references the Engine size.

Digit 9: Check Digit

Based on a mathematical formula developed by the Department of Transportation, the ninth digit is used to detect incorrect VINs.

Digit 10: Model Year

Model year is represented by the tenth digit. Model years 1981 to 2000 are designated by the letters B through Y, and I, O, Q, U, and Z are excluded. Model years 2001 through 2009 are designated by the letters 1 through 9. The next cycle of the alphabet begins with A in 2010 and continues until 2030. Following that, the 9s will continue until 2039.

Digit 11: Manufacturing Plant

If a Toyota was made at one of the automaker’s Japanese plants, the VIN will display a numeric character or a D, K, or J. R represents the Lafayette, Indiana plant, S represents Princeton, Indiana, and U signifies Georgetown, Kentucky. There are many Toyota factories around the world.  

Digits 12-17: Production Sequence Numbers

The Digits from 10-17 are the Vehicle Identifier Section (VIS) and are the production line numbers that complete the vehicle’s unique serial number

Vin Search

A VIN search tool is a tool that lets you search for information about a particular vehicle. You can use vehicle history reports to find out the make, model, year, miles, options, color, carfax reports, autocheck reports, license plate lookup, VIN records, title info ( blacklisted or clean), accident history, auction data, lien information, theft history, service and maintenance records and more.
