Ever wonder what your VIN# (vehicle identification number) on your vehicle means? This picture cracks the code to your car, it tells where it came from. Suppose your VIN starts with 5, that means you have a Toyota made in United States, if your Toyota starts with a J it was produced in Japan. The series of 17 digits comprised of letters and numbers give your vehicle it’s uniqueness. It tells insurance companies exactly what vehicle you drive; don’t want to insure the wrong car with incorrect safety features, body style or engine size. There are 3 letters that are never used in a VIN#: I(i), O(o) or Q(q) this is to keep confusion down from the numerals 1 and 0.
