What you’ll need to get the window sticker

In order to get your window sticker for your Hyundai, regardless of if you drive a coupe or an SUV, you will need your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). What is a VIN? It is a unique seventeen-character string of numbers and capital letters that are specific to your vehicle. A vehicle’s VIN number tells the story of the vehicle. It keeps track of the vehicle history, including previous owners, accidents, and repairs.

Where can I find my Hyundai VIN?

VIN’s on Hyundais are located in one of the following locations:

  • Driver’s side door jam

  • Under the windshield (driver’s side)

  • Steering column

  • Near the firewall of the vehicle

  • Service Tag

  • Vehicle registration, title, or insurance papers

What’s the difference between a VIN decoder, Monroney label, and Window Sticker?

For this article, there are three key terms to know and be able to differentiate between.

VIN Decoder: Provides the ability to find out the following basic information on your vehicle’s history

  • Model year

  • Production number

  • Manufacturing plant

  • Type of Engine and transmission

  • Track: recalls, warranty claims, theft

  • Odometer reading

  • Current state

Window Sticker: A label required to be displayed on all new vehicles being sold in the United States, with certain information about the vehicles for customers to be aware of.

  • VIN

  • Engine

  • Fuel MPG

  • Safety Rating

  • Standard Features (retail price, exterior color, etc.)

  • Add-on Features

Monroney Label: The same thing as a window sticker, but named after the Senator of Oklahoma, Almer Stillwell “Mike” Monroney, who sponsored the Automobile Information Disclosure Act of 1958. In 2013, the labels were updated to include:

  • Greenhouse gas ratings

  • Smog emissions ratings

  • A QR Code

  • How much consumers will save or spend on fuel over the next five years compared to the average new vehicle

What are some key details to know?

After you purchase your new vehicle there are some important bits of information to note about the description of Hyundai packages and what is left out of the window sticker.

How does Hyundai describe packages and options?

Hyundai describes packages and options to make them as appealing as possible to the typical person. They want the buyer to know they are getting a good deal up front with a safe, high-quality vehicle for a reasonable price.

When naming vehicles, there is no particular pattern surrounding them. Hyundai typically goes with names that are attention-grabbing. Some examples are listed below.

  • Sunset Orange, Stellar Silver, Oxford Blue, White Pearl, Thunder Gray

Signature Package: Includes extra touches on the seats, car lights, and mirrors

  • Auto-Dimming Side Mirrors

  • LED Fog Lights/Rearview Camera with Parking Guidelines

Tech Package: All about using technology to increase comfort, add more advanced safety features, and make the driving experience more enjoyable.

  • Power Driver Seat Cushion extension and side bolster

  • Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)

  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors

Ultimate Package: The little things that add up and can take the car to the next level especially for looks (exterior and interior) and audio.

  • Genuine Matte Finish Wood Trim and Aluminum Trim

  • Lexicon 17-speaker discrete Logic 7 audio system

Add-on Examples:

  • Bumper Applique: protects the surface of the rear bumper from scratches while loading and unloading

  • Cargo Package: A tray that helps protect the cargo area and preserve the carpeting from everyday life messes (spills, dirt, etc.)

  • 7-inch color touchscreen display audio system (no CD player): comes in the Limited and SEL Plus models


An additional fee in some instances can include an upgraded engine. The options below show the 2020 Santa Fe and which engines come with which model variation.

  • SEL Plus: Inline 4-cylinder with 147 Horsepower at 6200 RPM (rotations per minute)

    • Higher cost

  • Ultimate: Inline 4-cylinder turbocharged with 175 Horsepower at 5500 RPM (rotations per minute)

    • Standard model

What does the window sticker not provide?

A window sticker will not provide information on whether a used car has had aftermarket parts installed from a previous owner and/or the original dealer. Since the window sticker shows the vehicle as it came from the factory, the information is never updated in the system. Information about the current vehicle condition or any history of accidents will not be included on the window sticker.

When does this Free Hyundai Window Sticker or VIN decoder not work?

There are a few instances to be aware of when trying to use this VIN decoder or Window sticker that will inhibit you from using it.

Reasons the VIN decoder will not work:

  • The vehicle models older than 2013 typically cannot use a VIN decoder

  • VIN is not 17 digits long (pre 1981 vehicles)

  • VIN contains illegal characters

  • Does not pass the checksum test

    • A test in the U.S. and Canada in the 9th position to determine the VIN’s validity

  • Outside of data provider’s coverage

  • The vehicle is brand new (not in the system yet)
