Where can I find my VIN?

Your VIN or Vehicle Identification Number is a series of 17 alphanumeric characters that uniquely identifies your vehicle. The letters I and O are not included; they are represented numerically by the numbers 1 (One) and 0 (Zero).

The characters themselves record specific information regarding the vehicle manufacturer, place of assembly, and other details.

You can find the VIN:

  • On a metal tag affixed to the driver's side of the dashboard, closest to the windshield (the tag is visible from the outside of the vehicle)  
  • On the driver's side doorjamb when the door is open
