Results provided by VinLINK Service tools

VinLINK uses the same database as other VinPOWER products. The database contains data of vehicles since 1981 until present. Later the VinPOWER results are enhanced with JATO Database search results and provided to the requestor in an XML format. The optional picture is Base64 coded and included within the XML Report.

The FULL version of a VinLINK REPORT in XML format contains two major Tags :

  • VINPOWER
  • VEHICLES

  Since the VIN may not specify just enough information to get a single record, all available records for this particular VIN are returned within the report. Here is a sample VEHICLES tag showing such situation:   <VEHICLES make=”Ford” model=”Escape” year=”2002″> <VEHICLE Driven_Wheels=”4″ Make=”FORD” Model=”ESCAPE” Model_Year=”2002″ Number_of_Doors=”5″ Trim_Level=”XLT CHOICE” Vehicle_id=”5.5427120020304E13″ Version_Name=”(O)XLT CHOICE 4X4″> <VEHICLE Driven_Wheels=”4″ Make=”FORD” Model=”ESCAPE” Model_Year=”2002″ Number_of_Doors=”5″ Trim_Level=”XLT MIDNIGHT” Vehicle_id=”5.5427420020304E13″ Version_Name=”(O)XLT MIDNIGHT 4X4″> <VEHICLE Driven_Wheels=”4″ Make=”FORD” Model=”ESCAPE” Model_Year=”2002″ Number_of_Doors=”5″ Trim_Level=”XLT PREMIUM” Vehicle_id=”5.5427320020304E13″ Version_Name=”(O)XLT PREMIUM 4X4″> <VEHICLE Driven_Wheels=”4″ Make=”FORD” Model=”ESCAPE” Model_Year=”2002″ Number_of_Doors=”5″ Trim_Level=”XLT SPORT” Vehicle_id=”5.5427220020304E13″ Version_Name=”(O)XLT SPORT 4X4″> </VEHICLES>

 

Each one of the VEHICLE tag will contain the following sections (Tag):

 

Sample: <VEHICLE Driven_Wheels=”4″ Make=”FORD” Model=”ESCAPE” Model_Year=”2002″ Number_of_Doors=”5″ Trim_Level=”XLT SPORT” Vehicle_id=”5.5427220020304E13″ Version_Name=”(O)XLT SPORT 4X4″> <BASIC_INFO> <STANDARD_EQUIPMENT> <OPTIONAL_EQUIPMENT> </VEHICLE>
