If a car is sold and OFF the Lot from the dealer if it will not be shown on this VIN check.

Sure would be nice to figure out when a car is actually gone without having to call and play the guessing game.

There are a few dealers that don't list the car 'in transit' and say it's on the lot when it really isn't.

Please tell us what country you are in when you do this. I'm wondering about the USA for myself but this should help others too !

TIA

I received a VIN from my NJ dealer who told me the car was still on the ocean, so to speak. I ran it on that app and it describes the car accurately, and says its status is: "AA" It also shows the name and address of the dealer.

Just put my deposit on the car and it comes up as "AA" to be delivered to the dealer on May 20th.

Same for me, the dealer marked it as sold in the hyundai system so it no longer shows on the hyundai.com inventory or Find Your New Electric Vehicle, but still shows as in transit on their dealer site and hiepcs

FWIW, I created a simple script to watch inventories at dealer sites and quickly found that the info there is garbage... ev finder seems a bit better, but only sure thing is to call and ask. Script was helpful in seeing when allocations went out to dealers, but not in what they actually had available for reservation/sale... lots of dealers just got new allocations (yesterday/today), so nows a good time to be hitting them up for availability from what I can tell.

Yes, it appears that way, a lot of dealers were notified of new allocation yesterday into today.
As soon as my dealership called me, while I was on the phone, 3 emails came to me from various dealers to let me know about new inventory. EVFinder's website # for limited went from 7 (within 150miles from my place which INCLUDES DC all the way up to NYC) to 37 yesterday and to 67 this morning and already went down to 61 today and the car that I put deposit on is still there on the list.
