If you’re looking for a used Jeep® for sale near Wooster, here are a few terms you’ll see along the way. If you have any other questions, just stop by our Jeep dealership.

What is a VIN?

VIN stands for a vehicle identification number. You’ll find this number right under the photos of every vehicle for sale on our website. You can also find the number on the windshield or your driver or your passenger door. Just like fingerprints, every car gets a unique 17-digit VIN.

What is a VIN used for?

Several websites offer VIN checks. By inputting the number, you’ll get vehicle information, including the brand, model, year, style, and even country of assembly. In some cases, you’ll also get a list of available vehicle records for the car, such as maintenance or accident logs. You’ll need your VIN to apply for insurance and register your vehicle as well.

What does MSRP mean?

MSRP stands for the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. This is the amount of money that your car’s manufacturer recommends as the retail selling price.

What is a Dealer Invoice?

You may hear the term dealer invoice or factory invoice while visiting a Jeep dealership. When a dealer gets a new vehicle, then the auto manufacturer sends along with an invoice. It lists the manufacturer name, VIN, and the original dealer who ordered the vehicle. You’ll also find a list of charges that the dealer owes the manufacturer and the MSRP.
