VIN History.

Historically, there have been several watershed moments in the development of automobiles and vehicles, a lengthy list from the invention of the wheel, to the development of steam powered engines, the four stroke engine cycle, the internal combustion engine, and other features including safety measures like airbags, 3 point seatbelts, ABS (anti-lock braking system), and a host of other advancements.

Today we focus on the VIN, also referred to as the Chassis Number because it is stamped on the vehicle chassis, or front frame, and its impact on automobile technology and advancements.

VINs were first used in 1954 in the United States, by early adopters like the Ford Motor Company and General Motors, and was used in various non-uniform formats on many vehicles including motorcycles and trailers or other long haul vehicles, but it was not until 1981 that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the United States standardized the format.

It required all on-road vehicles sold to contain a 17-character VIN, which does not include the letters I (i), O (o), and Q (q) (to avoid confusion with numerals 1 and 0).

The VIN is not a random series of numbers, but a carefully calculated 17-digit AlphaNumeric(containing both numbers and alphabets) code, which is specific and unique for all road going vehicles.

No two vehicles should have the same VIN, as generally no two humans have the exact same fingerprint sequences, and all VINs must be valid and must decode to yield a vast amount of information specific to each vehicle.

There are several internationally accepted standards for the VIN, formulated by international bodies such as the SAE, ISO, ADR, and FMVSS, each gaining acceptance in different parts of the world. The focus here is on the FMVSS, used in the United States and Canada.

Below are some common locations on a vehicle to find the VIN, which should appear as depicted below, a 17 digit number,

A quick summary of the VIN and it's components follows, using a sample VIN:

1NXBE40E49Z028110

1NX
This is referred to as the World Manufacturer Identity, WMI, 1NX refers to North America, specifically a vehicle produced in the United States.

BE40E4
The fourth to ninth positions in the VIN are the vehicle descriptor section or VDS. This is used, according to local regulations, to identify the vehicle type, and may include information on the automobile platform used, the model, and the body style.
Manufacturers may use the 8th position to indicate the engine choice, for vehicles with multiple engine choices, V6 or Inline 4, for example.
The 9th digit is the Check digit, a calculated number which verifies the validity of the VIN.

9
The 10th digit refers to the model year. Vehicles from 2001 to 2009 will have numbers 1 to 9 as the 10th digit, however from 2010 an alphabetic system was introduced, with 2010 represented as A, 2011 as B, and so on. U, Z and the digit 0 are not allowed as the 10th digit.

Z
This is the Plant Code. Compulsory in North America is the use of the 11th character to identify the factory at which the vehicle was built.

028110
This is the serial number of the vehicle. It represents the number of the particular vehicle, of 999,999 similar sequentially produced models.

With the above there are online resources which decode the VIN itself and can yield information about individual vehicles such as the country, plant, year of manufacture, engine configuration, among others.

It is also possible to source vehicle parts using the VIN, on some part manufacturing websites, as well as producing or ordering vehicle keys, though these often still need to be encoded physically to the vehicle to function.

Vehicle History

Perhaps the most significant use of the VIN is in determining the history of a vehicle, from its manufacture and shipping to a dealership, purchase, title registration, and a host of other events in the lifespan of a vehicle used in the US and Canada.

Vehicle History dates back to the early days of standardized VIN in the US, in 1984 a company providing Vehicle History Reports was founded, and in 1986 started issuing documents which came to be known as CarFax reports. These early reports were rudimentary and issued to dealers via fax machines.

Over the years and with advancements in data technology these history reports have become detailed, and reveal a significant part of the history of a vehicle used in the US, and Canada, as well as other countries like the UK, which have slightly different methods.

The sources of the information in VIN reports include U.S. state title and registration records, auto and salvage auctions, Canadian motor vehicle records, rental and fleet vehicle companies, consumer protection agencies, state inspection stations, extended warranty companies, insurance companies, fire and police departments, manufacturers, inspection companies, service and repair facilities, dealers and import/export companies. Personal information is often scrubbed from the history reports before being issued.

These reports detect events reported to the above sources, and, while they may not always contain all information about a vehicle history, often indicate a large amount of information or relevance to a vehicle usage history.

There are 3 major providers of Vehicle History Reports for vehicles from North America:

NMVTIS
A government agency providing basic history reports. These may be obtained free in some cases, or for as little as 500-1000 NGN.

CarFax
A data agency and the first provider of detailed Vehicle history reports. They can be obtained for 3000-4000 NGN.

AutoCheck
A more recent but significant alternative to CarFax reports. AutoCheck is owned and operated by the US data giant Experian. They can be obtained for 1000-3000 NGN.

These providers often charge fees for access, with CarFax charging the most, on average, and access to NMVTIS is the least expensive, as they often provide only very basic information. NMVTIS is required by US law to be a self sustaining entity, so must charge a small fee to self finance their operations.




AutoCheck reports often strike the balance between information and cost, as they provide a great deal of information for much less cost then CarFax, and in some cases have been found to include information not provided by CarFax.

Samples of AutoCheck and Carfax reports are included below.

AutoCheck Vehicle History Reports.

A recent competitor in vehicle history, AutoCheck has quickly gained adoption across the board due to its ease of access, cost, and amount of contained information.

AutoCheck reports also contain very important but often over looked tools in assessing a vehicle history. In addition to the title brands, and mileage history among other details reported, AutoCheck provides a patented tool, the AutoCheck score, which compares a vehicle to millions of other similar vehicle to produce a score which gives an objective assessment of a vehicle's condition.

The AutoCheck score takes into account various factors such as: age, vehicle class, number of owners, mileage, usage, title brand, mileage brand, accidents and other factors. In addition to the vehicle score, the report lists the scoring range of similar vehicles (based on year and style) as a comparison.

A vehicle may have a high score of (87), but may fall below the range for similar vehicles(95-97), so the range is just as important as the absolute score.

Another great AutoCheck feature is the Buyback Protection feature. This also further indicates the viability of a vehicle. Some vehicles may not qualify for buyback protection for several reasons.

Information related to VIN and automobile history reports is exhaustive, and CarGuideNG has attempted to provide as best a summary as possible, without omitting relevant information.

All vehicles imported from the US and Canada into Nigeria and advertised for sale should be evaluated with a Vehicle History Report, either AutoCheck or CarFax, in addition to an intensive physical inspection, before purchase is considered.

We would be glad to provide answers to any further questions, and encourage a robust discussion on the subject below.

Kindly discuss about Buyback Protection

Hello Sir

Buyback Protection is another great feature of AutoCheck Vehicle Reports.This service is a form of insurance for your purchase, as AutoCheck offers to buy back any used car you purchase which has issues not identified in the report.

Once you run a report on a vehicle VIN number, you are automatically eligible for AutoCheck purchase protection, so long as the car does not have any known issues. The buyback feature is AutoCheck’s way of guaranteeing their work.

If you choose to invest in AutoCheck buyback protection, you are eligible to receive up to 110% of the car’s value, plus $500 in aftermarket accessories, in the event that a problem is discovered that AutoCheck failed to identify.

What this means is that in the attached pictures, for a vehicle with buyback protection, AutoCheck guarantees that they are so confident in their history reports that if it is discovered that the report did not contain or disclose a state reported history brand/damage, AutoCheck will buy that vehicle back from you at 110% of its value, and even add 500 dollars to the amount.

Few other history providers offer this feature.
