VIN Number – a 17-character Vehicle Identification Number, unique to the vehicle its attached to. Above is my ’99 Jetta.
It’s a bit like reading a cipher – see 3rd paragraph for a breakdown.
Find VINs on the engine, seats, door jams, and mounted on the driver’s side of the dash.
Read it online at Autonet.
Always run your own VIN check before buying; a $50 purchase to verify one worth thousands is a good investment.
