HOW TO DECODE CHEVROLET VIN

Let's break down a Chevrolet VIN number and explain what each of the positions means.

POSITION 1

The first position of the VIN is held by a character that identifies the country or final assembly point of the vehicle. This shows where the Chevrolet was made. The first position may also indicate where the Chevrolet headquarters is located.

  • 1 or 5 indicate your car is U.S. built
  • 2 is a Canadian built
  • 3 is built in Mexico
  • 6 is built in Australia
  • K is built in South Korea
  • J is Japan built

POSITION 2

This is the number that indicates the manufacturer of your vehicle.

  • G “ General Motors
  • L “ General Motors Korea Company

POSITION 3

This provides information on the brand division. This number makes it possible to identify the exact division of the manufacturer in cases where they have multiple divisions.

Positions one through three are known as the World Make Identifiers. Examples for your Chevrolet may be as follows:
