It is useful to use the VIN code to find out
how many people owned a car;
have there been accidents;
was the car stolen;
whether the equipment is not pledged.
There are special services for this purpose.
Autocode – a portal for residents of the capital region, where the history of ownership, the number of owners, information about accidents, commercial use, and other facts are available.
State traffic Inspectorate – for car owners registered outside of Moscow and the region. It also stores information about the vehicle's biography. But the accident database may be incomplete.
Register of notices of liens of movable property – here you can find out whether the car is mortgaged.
