Can I Use the VIN Number to Find Features, Options and Packages?

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) provides much more information than just year, make and model. A VIN number can tell you a complete history of your car, truck or SUV from production to sale. Did you know that the VIN can help you determine what features, options and packages were added to the vehicle when it was ordered and built? The 4th – 8th characters of the 17-digit VIN Number will help paint a picture of your vehicle – make, engine, type, features and more.  And the VIN Number can help you determine if a vehicle you are buying has been in an accident or had any major repairs.
