Millions of Searches and Counting
One of the most obvious steps when purchasing a used vehicle is researching the VIN number. It’s the first step you can take as a consumer to find out as much information as possible on a car you are considering purchasing. Your car is a big lifetime purchase. Make it count.
This is the initial part of what is known as a vehicle history report, which is a comprehensive document that serves as a chronological biography of a car, truck or motorcycle, from the time it was first registered way back when up until today.
Also known as a VIN Number search, this is the only way to know for sure if a vehicle is worry-free. If there's anything to be worried about, it will be flagged and discovered by this search...and you'll know right away that this is a car to avoid or simply reconsider. Some accidents or car issues can be rectified and be good as new. These are questions to ask a mechanic.
What is a VIN and what does the VIN check reveal about a used car?
VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number, and every single car in the world has a unique one. It is like an automobile's fingerprint or Social Security Number, and no two are alike. Every car, truck, van and SUV built after 1981 has a 17-character, alphanumeric sequence, with each of the 17 letters and numbers signifying something specific about the car. The VIN number is located on various parts of the car. Not just the cowl.
