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 Toyota 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

  • A track of recalls, warranties, registration, thefts, and insurance coverage

The United States requires that a Monroney Label, aka Window Sticker, is displayed on the window of a new vehicle to disclose its equipment and pricing information. It was most recently updated in 2013 to include:

  • VIN

  • Engine type

  • EPA fuel economy

  • Government safety ratings

  • Warranty information

  • Available standard options and features

  • Additional manufacturer options and pricing

What are some key details to know about how Toyota describes packages and options?


Choosing the trim level (a version of a vehicle model equipped with a fixed combination of features) of a new car and deciding what options and packages to add is an exciting step in the car-buying process -- that is if you are familiar with lingo in the auto industry. Toyota refers to the various trims for each vehicle using a similar naming scheme. Continue reading to learn more about the trims and options available at Toyota.

For example, the all popular Toyota Corolla is available in five trims starting at an MSRP of $19,825. With each increasing tier, you can expect the vehicle to be equipped with most of the standard features from the preceding tier, in addition to other premium features.

What does the window sticker not provide?


Window stickers are most accurate when the vehicle is “new”. The sticker will not reflect any modifications installed by the dealer or any current/previous owners -- nor will it detail any parts that have been repaired or replaced.


Whether the vehicle was purchased from a Toyota dealership, CPO (certified pre-owned program), or a private seller, the sticker does not provide the vehicle’s current condition or history. To obtain such information, we recommend services such as Carfax, Autocheck, and having it inspected by a certified professional.


Finally, the MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) will not reflect the vehicle’s current value due to natural wear and depreciation. Although the window sticker shows a particular MSRP, the vehicle may sell for less when taking into consideration negotiations and discounts.


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


The free Monroney label tool currently supports vehicles which are 2013 Model Year and newer. In addition to this, there are other limitations you may encounter using the sticker tool:

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

  • The VIN cannot be validated by certified techniques:

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

  • Illegal character check: VINs can include any alphanumeric character minus the letters I, O, and Q

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