The Labels on your Hyundai: A Gateway to Key Vehicle Information

Hyudnai Service

Hyundai vehicles come with several labels, located in different areas of the vehicle, and each providing crucial information about the vehicle. From the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to tire specifications, knowing where to find this information is useful for effective vehicle management and maintenance.

1. Exploring the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

The VIN is a unique identifier used for registering your car and is used in a variety of matters pertaining to its ownership. Hyundai features this number on the body panel between the engine and the interior, serving as a quick reference in various situations like servicing.

2. The Convenient VIN Label

Hyundai ensures easy visibility of the VIN by attaching it on a plate on the top of the left side of the dashboard. This strategic location allows for effortless viewing through the windshield from outside, facilitating swift verification when needed.

3. Vehicle Certification Label

Positioned on the driver’s (or front passenger’s) side centre pillar, the vehicle certification label offers another representation of the VIN, acting as a failsafe, ensuring vehicle identification is still possible even if one label is compromised.

We would recommend writing down your vehicle’s VIN number or taking a picture so it’s close if you need to refer to it quickly. It will also be written on your vehicle’s registration.

4. Tire Label: A Guide to Optimal Pressure

Hyundai places the tire label on the driver’s side centre pillar, detailing the recommended tire pressures for your vehicle. Adhering to these specifications maintain optimal tire performance and vehicle safety.

5. Identifying the Engine Number

The engine number, stamped prominently on the engine block, is essential when sourcing engine-specific parts or information. This unique number ensures that any components or services acquired align perfectly with your vehicle’s engine model.

6. Refrigerant Label: Insight into Air Conditioning Maintenance

The refrigerant label provides indispensable information regarding refrigerant type and amount. This information is crucial when servicing the air conditioning system to maintain optimal performance and to prevent any potential damage due to the usage of incorrect refrigerant.

The assorted labels on Hyundai vehicles serve as gateways to vital information, facilitating effective vehicle management and maintenance. A thorough understanding of where to locate these details ensures informed, responsible vehicle ownership, promoting the longevity and optimal performance of your Hyundai vehicle.
