Yes you can! Finding the Toyota production date by VIN is as simple as typing it into our free VIN decoder. Not only will our free Toyota VIN decoder provide you with the production date by VIN, but you will also learn other information – including:
You can look up the Toyota production date by VIN for nearly all makes and models including a Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Prius, Toyota Mirai and more.
In general, a Toyota VIN lookup should tell you most of a Toyota's features. However, it will only list the features that were included when that Prius or Camry was manufactured. If any other features have been added since then, information will not be available in the VIN lookup provided by our free VIN decoder.
No, we do not. Japanese Toyotas are not required to use the modern American VIN system. Therefore, we can't offer a Japanese Toyota VIN decoder. Quite simply, the government can only regulate the VIN numbers of cars made to be sold in America. Cars made to be sold in Japan do not use our system, so we do not offer a Japanese VIN decoder.
No. For the same reasons that we cannot offer a Japanese VIN decoder, we can't offer a VIN decoder in Europe. The system is simply different. Our Toyota VIN decoder is designed to be used by people buying a used car in North America.
This depends on what kind of Toyota vehicle options you are trying to lookup by VIN. If the options were installed on your Toyota Prius when the car was manufactured, it will come up in the report provided to you when you use our Toyota VIN decoder. If, however, they were installed by the dealership or a private party, then you cannot lookup those Toyota vehicle options by VIN. This is because the VIN number is placed there by the manufacturer, and not by a dealer or any other third party. So doing a lookup of Toyota vehicle options by VIN is limited to what the factory has installed.
Mostly, you want to make sure you have been provided with a real VIN number and not a counterfeit one before you use our Toyota VIN decoder. First, make sure it is a combination of 17 numbers and letters. Once you've done that, look at the second digit; it should be a “T” or an “N.” If possible, you also want to look at the paperwork for the Toyota Avalon and make sure the VIN on the car matches the VIN in the paperwork.
For a Toyota Corolla or any other type of Toyota, you need to find the VIN decoder system that works best for you. Many companies offer VIN decoders for a Toyota Corolla. Our VIN decoder for a Toyota Corolla is free. Other companies charge money if you want to use their VIN decoder for your Toyota Corolla. The choice is yours!
