What is a VIN?

The VIN is located in a number of places on a car, but most commonly on the dashboard (you can see it through the windshield) and the drivers side door jamb sticker. On some vehicles the VIN is also placed on the engine, hood, and other parts. The VIN may also appear on car titles, insurance policies, service records and police reports for the vehicle.

Decoding VIN Numbers For A Chrysler

Unless you are a classic car collector looking to buy a used vehicle made before 1981, you can find a 17-digit VIN number on any pre-owned Chrysler you are thinking about purchasing. These VIN numbers were created so that people could decode information about the vehicle before making their purchase.

But doing manual decoding of VIN numbers is not for everyone. Given the sheer number of possibilities, decoding is something best left to technology like the search engine.

We would be happy to help you decode a Chrysler VIN yourself if you want to do your own research. Simply provide us with your email address, and we will provide you with a guide to the hundreds of possible code combinations and their meanings.

For now, however, we can tell you that you can often decode if a VIN number belongs to a Chrysler vehicle. Look at the second digit and see if it is one of these letters:
  • A
  • C
We should note that over the years, there have been some Chrysler models that don't have these letters in the second position. If the letters are not there, please enter the full VIN into our search engine.

History Of Chrysler

Chrysler, like the Ford Motor Company, is synonymous with American auto manufacturing. While it has never been the biggest selling brand in America – and today ranks at number 16 – it has long been known for its innovation in the industry.

In fact, it was back in 1924 when Chrysler became popular by introducing cars that contained the first oil filters and carburetor air filters, which greatly increased the performance and reliability of automobiles. Other innovations would follow, including being the first company to install transistor radios in their cars in 1955.

The company went through a series of financial problems during the 1980s that almost killed it. But it came back strong in the 1990s, helped by a partnership with Daimler-Benz.

Chrysler almost went under again after the 2008 financial crisis, but was acquired by Fiat and is now back on its feet.
