Please read disclaimer below before using this tool.

Disclaimer: This tool is not the final authority on determining your year/make/model VW. Bodies, chassis, & parts can be switched and often are. Please also be advised the VW of Mexico used recycled parts to build new cars, often times the VINs do not reflect this. Jbugs cannot be held responsible for this as there are no indicators related to this. If you feel you may have a VW of Mexico/Brazil/Australia/etc. vehicle, please send pictures of the vehicle rather than use the VIN decoder. All Information listed on this page is considered "stock original specifications" for VW's destined to the US market. Always double check with your vehicle before ordering parts. We are not responsible for discrepancies. Always buy VW parts based on actual parts identification rather than the VIN and do NOT trust the year written on your car title. e.g. A Beetle made in Germany in late 1966 that sat on a US dealership lot till the following year, might be listed as a 1967, probably has had an engine replaced, etc.
