What is VIN?

1 minuteread

Vehicle Identification Number:

An abbreviation for Vehicle Identification Number, VIN refers to a particular set of numbers and characters allocated to each car upon its production. It’s a linear sequence of 17 characters without spacing, and excluding characters that would potentially be confused with numbers like Q/q, I/i, and O/o. Each segment of the VIN contains particular information about the car like when or where it absolutely was made and by whom.

The first and foremost thing that you simply seek for in a very car is its design, color, engine capacity, mileage, and features. However, a car’s Engine Number, Chassis Number, and therefore the Vehicle number (VIN) may not seem to be relevant while purchasing a replacement or a second user car. But, how does one know if the dealer is selling you a six month or maybe a year old car? These numbers are just like the DNA of your car.

VIN is often used after you want to shop for a second-hand car, to get information about it. It can even be wont to track the history of the actual vehicle i.e. if there was a security issue or defect associated with that model.
