Special Release Announcement:

With the launch of Auto Care’s new Vehicle Information Portal, replacing enhancedstandard.com, Auto Care has not added new vehicle coverage for this release of the VCdb.

Auto Care has used this time to transition data between enhancedstandard.com and the new Auto Care VIP site. We will now return to the regularly scheduled release cycle for all databases in our new system.

An additional note regarding this month’s VCdb files. They are smaller in size when compared to the February publication due to the re-launching of the VCdb Change Log in the new system. This month’s change log began with a clean slate and only contains the changes that occurred to the data after the February files were published.

The historical Change Log data may still be accessed by downloading the February publication which includes all changes processed in the VCdb since the inception of change log. Historical downloads for the past 12 months are available through the new VIP system.

Change notices – All Regions / All Vehicle Type Groups

For the complete details on new vehicle additions and changes to existing vehicles for the current month in all Regions / Vehicle Type Groups, please utilize the download for the VCdb Change Log from the Auto Care Vehicle Information Portal in one of the published versions in the format of your choosing.
