What is a VIN Number?

A VIN number is a 17 character alpha/numeric serial number unique to each vehicle, by manufacturer, make, model and year. Each character in the VIN number can be decoded to determine where the car was built, what year, which automotive features are included and more. Together, all the VIN numbers create a history about your Ford.

How to use this vehicle identification number information to decode your Ford VIN number: First, either find your VIN number on your vehicle registration or car title or in vehicle maintenance records from your dealer.

Other places to search for a vehicle identification number include various locations under the hood of your car.
