About VIN

VIN View is a free online VIN decoder that allows you to see the information about your vehicle that it contains.

There are 17 numbers and letters (17 positions) in a VIN and you can divide them into three groups: World Manufacturer Identifier, Vehicle Descriptor Section, and Vehicle Identifier Section. VIN View supports decoding of any vehicle identification number that was issued after 1978, which is when ISO 3779 was established to make a uniform way to track vehicles. If you have a car you would like to lookup prior to 1978, Operation is simple, enter the VIN number (17 characters, A thru Z and 0 thru 9) and click decode. On the decode page you'll see your VIN again and the position of each character, then on the bottom portion you'll see what position and characters map to what information. As more information becomes available, more details about the vehicle will be displayed (such as the model, engine size, options, etc).
