The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is an identification code comprised of a seventeen-digit combination of numbers and letters. Each letter, number or combination represents different items, such as manufacturer, type of restraint system, line, series and body type, engine, model year and consecutive unit number.
The VIN plate is located at the top left corner of the dashboard, just under the bottom of the windshield. The VIN number is also stamped on the right door pillar, on the certification label located on the drivers door, and on the emission control label located on the underside of the hood. On some models, there is a vehicle plate on the passenger side shock tower or the drivers side fender in the engine compartment that includes the VIN number, engine type, emission equipment, vehicle weights, and color codes.
