Why am I being asked for a VIN?

CarGurus requires a valid VIN to be added before messaging between buyer and seller is enabled. This is to ensure transparency between the buyer and seller so that there is complete confidence when the transaction is made. We believe that this level of clarity will ultimately help you sell your vehicle.

Please note that the VIN or license plate numbers are non confidential and it is standard industry protocol to share these numbers prior to sale negotiation.
