All models have the vehicle identification number (VIN) stamped on a plate which is attached to the left side of the instrument panel. This plate is visible through the windshield. The VIN is the legal identifier of your vehicle. The VIN consists of seventeen digits (letters and numbers). The first three digits "JT2'' (for example) of the VIN is the World Manufacture Identification number. The next five digits are the Vehicle Description Section. The remaining nine digits are the production numbers including various codes on body style, trim level (base, luxury, ect.) and safety equipment or other information.

The VIN on most models is also stamped on the manufacturer's plate in the engine compartment which is usually located on the firewall cowl panel and on the certification regulation plate affixed to the driver's door post.
