What is a VIN number?
Vehicle Identification Number stands for "VIN".
This vin number is a universal serial number provided to every car
by the vehicle manufacturer. Within the 17-digit number are different
codes that indicate the car's make and model, a serial number, where
the vehicle was manufactured, and even information about optional
add-ons such as a sun roof.

A vehicle identification number search provides information pertaining
to a vehicle's title, registration and usage history. VIN
numbers display the results of a comprehensive search for: damage
from hail, flood or fire; salvage or junk vehicles; accident damage; mileage
discrepancies or odometer rollback; gray market vehicles (vehicles manufactured
for non U.S. markets that may not comply with emission and/or safety standards
- does not include imports originally made for the U.S. market.); records
of theft; vehicles designated as rentals, taxis or fleet usage; lemon
vehicles; abandoned or forfeited vehicles; liens that represent ownership
interests or unpaid judgments.
A vehicle identification number search can report major accident damage.
A vehicle identification number search will identify when a vehicle has
been totaled or even had a minor fender bender. A vehicle will often receive
a salvage or junk notation on the title from various states. This is typically
called a salvage title - and it's more common than you think.
"No History Found" indicates that the free
VIN check found no information in that category at that particular
point in time. This could mean that companies have not yet received that
data or it could be an indication of a problem free condition.
Information provided in the comprehensive vehicle identification number
search comes from more than one hundred data sources. These include: State
Departments of Motor Vehicles, Auto Auctions, Canadian Motor Vehicle Departments,
Consumer Protection Agencies, Auto Dealers and Other State Agencies. All
data acquired from these sources meets either the federally mandated Drivers
Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) or industry guidelines.
