Posted by Jox / 2017-11-16

When we talk about the unique identifier of a vehicle, we talk about its VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).

The importance of this data is high, since it describes and classifies a vehicle without error marge.

These identification numbers are unique and are assigned to the same production line, it is usually recorded in the vehicle's chassis and in the most modern vehicles it can be found in the same lower part of the front window.

Thanks to this number we will be able to review all the vehicle information, Country of manufacture, type of engine, type of brakes, airbags and other extras, year of manufacture, displacement and much more.


When buying a new vehicle in the second hand market, it is very important to know that you are going to buy and know in advance if that vehicle is the one you are looking for. It's a simple way to get information about it and make sure it's exactly what they sell you.

But there is an even more important step, to know in depth all the data of the vehicle and to make sure that it meets all the requirements to be able to circulate.

You can know which owners you have had, if you have had a traffic ticket or if you have some kind of embargo.

There are many cases of vehicles purchased by people without really knowing what they are buying. A car is not a game of the Play Station, it is necessary to regularize a series of rules that, of natural form, must be in order. But it's not always like this.

Nobody would like to buy a vehicle and that a couple of months you get a letter of traffic or the entity that regulates everything in your country and tell you that your car can not move by embargo, has unpaid fines, was used to commit some criminal act ...

The VIN number does not match the papers

If checking that the checking that the VIN number the vehicle's papers, do not buy it. Many criminal organizations delete the original VIN number from the chassis and exchange it for another. This should never be so, if you are in this situation it is best to go to the appropriate authorities and bring it to their attention.
