A vehicle identification number, commonly abbreviated to VIN, or chassis number, is a unique code including a serial number, used by the automotive
industry to identify individual motor vehicles, towed vehicles, motorcycles, scooters and mopeds as defined in ISO 3833. There are vehicle history services
in several countries that can help potential car owners use VINs to find vehicles that are defective or have been written off. See the used car article
for a list of countries where this service is available.
