Q: Where do you find the vehicle identification number?

asked by on December 15, 2015

Where do you find the vehicle identification number?

Each car is required to have a unique vehicle identification number (VIN). This is used for a very wide range of things, from your title to your insurance and much more. Without a VIN, your car is likely not insurable. Here’s where to find it:

  • Check the dash in front of the driver’s position near the windshield. There will be a metal placard with the number embossed on it.

  • The VIN is also located on the firewall under the hood.

Tips

Both the 1.8-liter and 2.4-liter Civics have the VIN in the same places.
