  • Model year, manufacturer, and production number

  • Current state/last state to title the vehicle

  • A record of applicable manufacturer recalls, warranty information, registration data and more

The United States requires that a Monroney Label aka window sticker is displayed on the car window of new vehicles. The stickers give buyers a sense of what features and options are included for a vehicle before purchasing it. In 2013 it was updated to include:

What does the window sticker not provide?


Window stickers do not disclose dealership modifications of a vehicle or repairs/replacement of components applied by the manufacturer or other owners. Only the original configuration of options and features will be reflected by the car sticker.


The Monroney label does not provide records of the current condition, or history of a vehicle, even if it was purchased through a dealership or a CPO (certified pre-owned) program. That information can be obtained by using services such as Carfax, Autocheck.


Additionally, since the MSRP is for a brand new vehicle, that price is not a good indication of the vehicle's current value since it doesn't take into account natural wear and depreciation, As implied, the MSRP is a suggestion provided by automakers, and you may find a car sold for less when considering negotiations and discounts.


When does this Free Mini Window Sticker Tool or VIN decoder not work?


The WithClutch window sticker tool only produces stickers for vehicles that are 2013 Model Year and newer. There may also be other limitations that prevent you from using the sticker tool:

  • The VIN is not 17 characters long (applies to vehicles model year 1981 and older)

  • The VIN cannot be verified by certified techniques:

  • Checksum: The 9th digit of the VIN (limited to numbers 0-9 or the letter X) of US and Canadian vehicles is used to determine its validity

  • Illegal character check: Except for I, O, and Q, a VIN can include any alphanumeric character

  • Your vehicle is too new and has not been added to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) database
