VIN information comes from various state agencies like the department of motor vehicles (DMV) and the department of transpiration (DOT). Because each U.S. state handles vehicle history reports differently, finding out about a specific vehicle using a VIN can be challenging. Using InfoTracer’s powerful search engine, you can see millions of VIN reports instantly from all over the country. Some of the information found in our VIN check reports include when available:
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a 17-digit number that serves as a car’s serial number or unique “fingerprint”. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standardized the format in 1981, though VIN numbers have been a requirement of the U.S. government since 1954. A VIN can tell a lot about the vehicle.
A VIN can tell you the year, make, and model, unique features, recall information, country of origin, and car history. Because each car has its own unique code, the VIN will reveal specifics about that particular vehicle.
Vehicle history reports contain details about a car, including basic vehicle information and additional information regarding branded titles, accidents, or other major issues. In some states, vehicle owners are required to report major accidents to law enforcement. In addition, insurance companies use vehicle history reports before insuring motorists. Usually, the department of motor vehicles (or other state agency in charge of cars) maintains information about vehicle titles and brands.
The purpose of vehicle history reports is to inform the public about the condition and specific details about a vehicle. Before purchasing a used car, it is always a good idea to perform a VIN check first to ensure the car or truck has not suffered any serious accidents, flood damage, fire, or other serious issues.
A vehicle title reveals information about the current and past owners of the vehicle along with their address information, odometer readings, title number, states where the vehicle has been registered, and purchase dates.
Below are some types of branded titles:
InfoTracer is not a consumer reporting agency under the Fair Credit Reporting Agency (FCRA) and does not provide FCRA compliant consumer reports. InfoTracer does not permit the use of information obtained from their service for use in discriminating against any consumer or for the purposes of determining a consumer's eligibility for personal credit, insurance, employment, housing, licenses, or benefits. It also does not permit the use of gathered information for any purpose related to a consumer's economic or financial standing or status.
Some government agencies, such as the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), have free VIN check tools where you can enter a VIN and find out specific information for free. You can also run an InfoTracer initial VIN scan for free.
The NICB VIN lookup tool will show if a car has been reported stolen. Before buying a used car, it’s always a good idea to run a quick VIN check to look for any issues.
The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has a VIN lookup tool where car owners can check for recalls on their vehicles. The NHTSA is responsible for handling safety recalls in the U.S. InfoTracer’s reports also contain the latest recall information about vehicles.
Yes. You can easily find out the make, model, year, trim level, engine types, braking system, safety equipment like airbags, and more with an InfoTracer search.
There are dozens of services online where you can enter a VIN and look up a vehicle. Typically, you may see some details for free, but you might have to pay a small fee for additional information.
Using a VIN check or vehicle history report, you can check the vehicle’s accident history. A branded title may indicate an accident. However, not all accidents are reported, so even if the car looks clean, have a mechanic check the used vehicle over before buying. Check the fair market value also.
A salvage title is when a car has been in an accident and damaged beyond repair. It is no longer fit for road use, but it can be used for parts.
The VIN is located on the dashboard on most vehicles, driver’s side door label, vehicle registration, an insurance card, or the car’s title.
A VIN decoder breaks down the 17-digit unique identifier (VIN) to extract information such as where the car was manufactured (country, plant, etc.), the engine type, the model year, and other details. For example, the first three numbers represent the World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI) and can tell you the vehicle manufacturer and the country of origin. Numbers 4 through 9 are called the vehicle descriptor section or the vehicle identifier section. This area tells you the vehicle specifications, such as the engine size and type, the body style, the assembly plant, and the model year.
Transferring the title of a car from one person to another transfers ownership of the car or truck. To do this, the vehicle owner must sign the back of the title and fill out the new owner’s name, address, and the current odometer reading. The buyer or new owner must sign the back also. The current owner then gives the title to the new owner, and they bring it with them to their local DMV office when registering the vehicle.
