Typically the last 8 of the VIN number are shown. The 8th digit from the end of the identification vin number designates the model year of the vehicle. y was 2000, 1 through 9 are for 2001 to 2009, then the process starts over at A for 2010, B for 2011, C for 2012, D for 2013 and so on. some letters are skipped, as it goes by letters for 20 years until 2030, then the 1 through 9 starts over.
