Top Reasons to Check the VIN
Now that you understand where to find your car, truck, or motorcycle VIN, and have access to this handy checker, it helps to know why you would want to check it out anyway. The VIN number tells more than where the car came from and when it was made. It gives a relatively comprehensive look back at its entire history. This matters quite a bit if you want to buy a pre-owned vehicle. The VIN records may include number of owners, if the vehicle was ever used commercially, its service record, if it was involved in any accidents or was damaged in a flood or other natural disaster, and what type of major repairs occurred over its lifetime. Also, a VIN number checker tells you about any recalls for a particular year, make, and model so you know if the car you consider buying is safe or not.
