Vehicle VIN, I Have the Wrong Car
Q: On a uni-body car where will I find the VIN? When I took my car in for service, I was going to trade it in then I decided to keep it when I picked up the car I found it to be different, as in year, style, etc. If you can help or have any information, please let me know.
A: This is really confusing. Did you drive this vehicle away from the shop? Or are you without a vehicle? The first place you should check for a vehicle identification number (VIN) is right at the drivers side lower corner of the windshield on a plate with 17 digits. There will be a sticker on the drivers side door post and depending on the year and make it can be found in a variety of other places. Once you sort this out, Id really like to hear the rest of the story and Im sure the readers would too.
