You could be driving a stolen Re-VIN vehicle

Posted Dec 20th, 2023

There is a risk that you could be driving a stolen re-vinned vehicle.  Often vehicles are stolen with the intention of shipping overseas.  The newest trend is vehicles are remaining in Canada, then re-vinned for sale to the public with either a new VIN or the VIN number from another vehicle.
