Additional Info:

The delivered VIN Lookup file for each VINBasic™ product is built around the VIN Pattern. This is the informational portion of the 17 digit VIN. It consists of digits 1-8, 10 and 11, resulting in a 10 digit pattern*. The data file is delivered with each record, or row, containing a VIN pattern associated with the rest of the data within that row.

*The exception to this is VINBasic™ Powersports which is build around a 9 digit VIN Pattern since it does not use the 11th digit.

VINBasic™ Canadian

Canadian light-duty and passenger vehicle VIN decoding solution

VINBasic™ Canadian provides all of the features of VINBasic™ Autos & Trucks, but for the Canadian market.

Most vehicles sold in the U.S. are designated for the joint U.S. / Canadian market. However, some manufacturers produce specific models or trims that are only sold in Canada. Some manufacturers also produce variations of a US model or trim that is sold only in Canada.

VINBasic™ Canadian is an ideal solution for companies doing business in the Canadian market or companies doing business in the Northern U.S. states where vehicles are often encountered that were purchased new in Canada and are later sold as a pre-owned vehicle in the U.S. market.

VINBasic™ Powersports

VIN Lookup file for motorcycles, scooters, dirt bikes, ATVs and UTVs

VINBasic™ Powersports is the perfect solution for identifying the Year, Make, Model, and Trim of powersports vehicles. In addition, the file can be formatted to include CRS ID for ease of pairing our VIN decoding with Consumer Research Solutions powersports images and extended data.

Unlike the VINBasic™ Autos & Trucks delivered file that uses the complete VIN Pattern, the VINBasic™ Powersports VIN Pattern is only 9 digits, using digits 1-8, skipping 9, and using digit 10 of the 17 digit VIN.

For example, the VIN Pattern for the VIN 1HD1KEM1|X|D|B602203 would be as follows: 1HD1KEM1D
