vehicle. These characters are assigned in accordance with § 565.16(a). A “9” shall be placed in

the third position of the VIN if the manufacturer identifier is six characters. A “9” in the third

position always indicates the presence of a six-character manufacturer identifier. The National

Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers access to manufacturer identifier assignments via

its search engine at the following Internet web site:

http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/manufacture.

(b) The second section shall consist of five characters, which occupy positions four

through eight (4-8) in the VIN. This section shall uniquely identify the attributes of the vehicle

as specified in Table I. For passenger cars, and for multipurpose passenger vehicles and trucks

with a gross vehicle weight rating of 4536 kg (10,000 lb) or less, the fourth character (position 7)

of this section shall be alphabetic. The characters utilized and their placement within the section

may be determined by the manufacturer, but the specified attributes must be decipherable with

information supplied by the manufacturer in accordance with § 565.16(c). In submitting the

required information to NHTSA relating gross vehicle weight rating, the designations in Table II

shall be used. The use of these designations within the VIN itself is not required. Tables I and II

follow:

TABLE I—TYPE OF VEHICLE AND INFORMATION DECIPHERABLE

Passenger car: Make, line, series, body type, engine type, and all restraint devices and their

location.

Multipurpose passenger vehicle: Make, line, series, body type, engine type, gross vehicle weight

rating, and for multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating

(GVWR) of 4536kg (10,000 lb) or less all restraint devices and their location.
