The serial number on all models consists of a 17 digit format. All models have the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) stamped on a plate which is attached to the left side of the instrument panel or dashboard (the 17 digit VIN is displayed in three separate locations on each vehicle). This plate is visible through the windshield.
The VIN is also stamped on a name plate in the engine compartment which is usually located on the firewall.
The certification plate on the left door or door post is also stamped with the VIN.
