What Does a VIN Report Include?

If you’re not purchasing a new car from a dealership, you can run a car VIN check to know all the facts about any used car, vehicle history records, salvage records, how many previous owners it had, inspection status, recalls, and repaired defects, just by typing the car's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or the plate number in our search box.


Vehicle Information

Each online VIN Check report features basic details on the car’s exact specifications and where it was built, for instance, car make, model year, body style, color, country of assembly, odometer reading, class, type, cylinder capacity, fuel type, and engine size.

Accidents and Repairs

VIN lookups lead to car history reports where the basic information about a vehicle's past is displayed, country of origin, manufacturer's recalls, accidents, lien records, sale records, specifications, salvage records, major repairs, full service and maintenance, and prior theft records.

Title Records

An online vehicle title search is the quickest way to get to the key data on the vehicle's ownership. Apart from its previous owners, date of first registration, mileage records, last title transaction, liens, or even a lost vehicle title.

Salvage Records

Salvage records document critical information about a vehicle that has been wrecked or destroyed. When extensive damages (over 75%) occur, a car’s value drops accordingly since it’s not safe to use it anymore. Such records indicate that repairs would cost more than the car is worth.

Vehicle Ownership

This section features past and current vehicle ownership, vehicle maintenance records, owner's name, contact info, phone number, home address, vehicle title details, vehicle registration records, and more.

Lemon History

A lemon car is a vehicle that has multiple manufacturing faults. With a vehicle lookup by VIN you can instantly find out if a vehicle's safety, utility or value is severely affected by serious defects. In case a car is a lemon, its owner could qualify for either a replacement vehicle or a refund.

What is a VIN?

First used in 1954 in the United States, the vehicle identification number is the unique code adopted by car manufacturers to identify motor vehicles, motorcycles, towed vehicles, scooters, and mopeds. Until the early 1980s, the automotive industry used different serial numbers, with no commonly agreed standard. In 1981, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the United States Department of Transportation introduced a standardized VIN format that should contain 17 alphanumeric characters. To avoid confusion with numerals 0, 1, and 9, letters I (i), O (o), and Q (q) cannot be used in a VIN.
