How does the VIN decoder work?

The VIN decoder reads your unique vehicle id number and provides information about the vehicle. This includes details encoded in the VIN, such as the manufacturer, type of engine and transmission, the year of production, make, model, and more. Additionally, the decoder will give you up-to-date information on the vehicle gathered from the manufacturer, dealerships, salvage/scrap yards, insurance companies, as well as government institutions - highway safety agencies, law enforcement agencies, and motor vehicle departments.

Using the VIN decoder is a great way to protect yourself when buying a used car, searching for the right replacement part, or looking up statistics on your vehicle.
