I assume the car is Left hand drive and therefore look in the rear passengers side and remove the floor light, behind you will find a fuse box and slightly above the fuse box is the stamped vin.

more info

carfax shows no problems with the car but the records go back only to 2006 with 61 k miles(its a MY02). I will tell him to check there for the real vin, but we have 2 problems: 1)he lost the key and the doors are all locked. not sure the best way to get in. 2) if we see a difft vin, how would he make a key b/c his title & registration show the wrong #. He may be screwed. If I were buying a care and had it carfaxed and checked out ok (like this one), I would not have ever cought it. It shows we cant just rely on those reports only. we have to be more carefull. by the way his title says 1st year sold 2006, 2002 model.
thanks again
Mustafa

He lost "the" key? A 2002 car should have two keys, or does it have a third key? If the owner does not take care of having two keys, I'm not sure if he cares about getting into the car either?

There are services for car owners who have lost all their keys, you know what sort of owners those actually are.
