Wondering where to find your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)? Look on the inside of the driver’s side door, on or under the dashboard, and/or on your insurance card. Finally, remember to check back frequently with NHTSA and/or on your manufacturer’s website in the coming days and weeks as they continue to process all the data pouring in from Takata.
