Shopping Tip:
To check used vehicles while you shop, be sure to ask the dealer/seller for the VIN.

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) can be found on dashboards, driver's side door jamb stickers, and title documents. Also check your car insurance card!

All cars and light trucks built after 1981 have a unique 17-character VIN that provides access to valuable information about that vehicle's history. The letters I, O and Q never appear in a VIN.

Also find VINs on the web ? including dealers' sites and car listings sites. Simply cut & paste ? it's easy!
