Check A VIN
What's a VIN? A Vehicle Identification Number is a serial number that uniquely identifies a car. You can name your car whatever you like, but the VIN is how each car is identified. Normally, every car has a 17 digit VIN. The VIN can be less or more than 17 digits in the following situations: a vehicle model year prior to 1980, a recovered stolen vehicle, a salvaged and rebuilt vehicle, a kit car or a state assigned VIN.
Where's the VIN? Just look on the dashboard, on the driver's side, from the outside of the car through the windshield. Look closely. It's that little strip with 17 digits consisting of a combination of letters and numbers. Note: There is no letter I(i), letter O(0) or letter Q(q). You can also look for the VIN on the EPA label located on the driver's side door jamb, which should match the VIN on the dashboard.
The VIN can also be found in a document, i.e. the vehicle registration or insurance ID card. The VIN should be verified to ensure the number matches the VIN located on the car.
