    It's all in the vehicle identificationnumber(VIN).Findit in the lower corner ofyourwindshield on the driver's side. In the series of numbers and letters, the tenth from the left denotes the model year and the eighth is theengine code.

    A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the string of 17 numbers and letters that an automobile manufacturer assigns to an individual vehicle. The VIN can reveal a number of things about a car, including its airbag type, country of origin, engine size, model year and trim level. The VIN also is key to car safety. By entering a VIN in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's freeVIN Look-up Tool, you can see whether a vehicle is subject to a recall. Typically, the VIN is stamped into a plate that's mounted on the dashboard near the windshield or on the driver-side door jamb. It's also stamped on the engine's firewall.
    Other VIN Uses

    Other than using your VIN for deciphering your car's pedigree, you can use it for less entertaining but more important reasons involving its title, registration and insurance. Another critical use of a VIN is to obtain a vehicle history report for a car you're considering for purchase. Before you buy a used car (even if it's from a dealer), it's important to get the vehicle's VIN and use it to run a history report on sites likeAutoCheckorCarfax. The reports can reveal if the car has been reported stolen or if it has asalvage title. There are several types of reports to choose from.
