VIN Location in Canadian Used Cars
Are you looking for certain information about your current vehicle that you can’t find in the owner’s manual? Or are you considering the purchase of a used vehicle and want to make sure that you are getting something in excellent shape? Instead of scouring the internet for hours, you can take advantage of one feature located in the vehicle: the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). All vehicles sold in North America are outfitted with a VIN so that you can quickly and easily find the information you need about your vehicle or a vehicle that you may purchase.
Why is the VIN in a Used Vehicle So Important?
When you are shopping for a used car from Stop 23 Auto Sales and find something that you like, you can take the VIN and look up the vehicle’s history through certain resources like CarFax. Those resources can tell you if any accidents have occurred with the vehicle, along with how many people have owned it. Some maintenance history may also be available thanks to the vehicle’s VIN.
Other purposes for the VIN include:
- Registering the vehicle
- Applying for car insurance
- Filing car insurance claims
- Finding your vehicle if it is stolen
Where is the VIN Located in a Vehicle?
The VIN will be located in both of the following places:
- Driver’s door jamb
- On the dash near the windshield
