What do I need to get the window sticker (Vehicle VIN) and how do I find it?

The easiest way to obtain a window sticker is with your VIN (vehicle identification number). A VIN is composed of 17 characters (numbers and capital letters). It is an identifying code, unique to your vehicle, used to track manufacturer recalls, vehicle records, thefts, etc. The VIN for your Nissan can typically be found in two places:

  1. On the driver’s side doorjamb

  2. The left corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield

Other places you can find the VIN is on vehicle registration documents, insurance cards, and sometimes vehicle service invoices.

What’s the difference between a VIN decoder, Monroney Label, and Window Sticker?

A VIN decoder allows you to verify a vehicle’s history using the vehicle identification number. Decoding a VIN will provide you with the following vehicle information:

  • Model year, location of the manufacturer, and production number

  • Number of vehicle owners over time

  • Current state or last state to title the vehicle

  • The track recalls, warranties, registration, thefts, and insurance coverage
