How To Find the VIN on Your Toyota
Your Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN, is an important piece of information. A Vehicle Identification Number is 17 characters long and is the one thing that you can rely on to identify your vehicle from other vehicles on the road. Every vehicle sold in the United States must have a VIN. Take a closer look at where and how to find the VIN on your Toyota in case you need it.
Where Can You Find a Toyota VIN
Toyota prints your VIN in two easy-to-find locations in its vehicles. Whether you have a 2017 Toyota Camry or a trail-ready 2017 Toyota Tacoma, you should have no problem locating either of these two tags. Regardless of location, the VIN number is the same. Check out where you can find a Toyota VIN below
Top of the Dashboard – The primary VIN location in your Toyota is at the top of the dashboard. Printed on a metal plate fixed to the top of the dashboard at the base of the windshield, the VIN number will be visible from the outside of your vehicle on the driver’s side and is protected from the elements. The VIN is 17 characters long and it’s the only information on this tag.
Inside the Driver’s Side Door – A second tag can be found just inside the driver’s side door below the latch and facing toward the front of the car. This tag contains additional information about your vehicle, including a manufacture date, where it was manufactured and more. You will find the VIN in two locations on this tag — a barcode that can be scanned and printed just above the barcode.
Where Else Can You Find Your VIN?
If you need your VIN and you don’t want to go outside or in your garage to take a look at your car, then there are two additional places where you will find the VIN number for your Toyota Camry.
