Cannot decode a 2003 Colt Clubcab at all. Unknown manufacturer.

Got the Renault Clio and Megane names right. Thats it. No year or other info.

May work for US cars maybe

only works for 17 digit VIN numbers, I use it all the time for the valuations I do for repossessed cars, works well on Merc, BMW, Jeep , And most Trucks etc. older cars I tried and it does not work on most. mainly the more modern cars.

As an example on a Mercedes C class, gives year of manufacture , engine details, all options on the car and where it was built ie: East London on SA cars and so on
