GET Vehicle Specifications Using An API

idarwishman profile image Abe Darwish ・13 min read

If you ever start developing an application that involves vehicles, chances are you'd like to query the specifications or attributes of a vehicle that make it what it is. Purchasers often do this on an individual level when deciding what car they want to purchase by using a VIN decoder.

A VIN is a vehicle identification number; each vehicle has a unique VIN.

The question that remains is, how can I query such specifications in an application? This is where an API such as the CarsXE Vehicle Specifications API comes into play.

The Vehicle Specifications API provides access to a library of vehicle specifications data.

Data covered in the API includes attributes, color options, equipment details, recall information, warranties, and photos. If none of these attributes are added to the include query only attributes and selections will be returned.

There is also another component to the API which allows for a "selections" request that can be used to retrieve lists of vehicles based on their year, make, model, trim, style, or ID. The selection requests can be done using Vehicle Selections API which is different from the specifications API.

Retrieving Data

Using The VIN

So let's say I have a BMW 3-series but I'd like to learn more about it. I look at the truck and find that the VIN is 1NXBR32E85Z505904. In my application, of course, I can ask the user to enter or scan the VIN.

So I need to make an HTTP GET or POST request to the API requesting this data. I love JavaScript so I'll give an example using the request package in my NodeJS server application. Here's what I need to make the request:

  1. Get a unique CarsXE API Key (by creating an account and adding a payment method)
  2. Make the request
var request = require('request');
const r = 'http://api.carsxe.com/specs?vin=1NXBR32E85Z505904&include=selections,attributes,colors&format=json&key=<CarsXE_API_Key>'; 
request(r, function (error, response, body) {
  console.log('error:', error); // Print the error if one occurred
  console.log('statusCode:', response && response.statusCode); // Print the response status code if a response was received
  console.log('body:', body); // Print the HTML for the Google homepage.
});

If we look at the queries passed to the string we can see we passed:

  • vin=1NXBR32E85Z505904
  • include=selections,attributes,colors
  • format=json
  • key=<CarsXE_API_Key>

You can make this request in Python or any other language. Let's see what the request will return.

I can advise each motorist on how to select a normal engine at a good price and good quality. It is not difficult in reality and everyone can do it. For example, if you are looking for 2 different types of engines, such as DOHC and SOHC, these two engines are completely different, but their quality is excellent. It's just for different targets. That's why I recommend you just be sure to look at and study avtotachki.com/en/dvigateli-dohc-i... this article, which is just as clear and detailed as possible on how to choose the right engine, which is better to take them, what are the pros and cons of each. For motorists such knowledge is especially valuable, as there are few places where you can get such data, so be sure to read and study the details. I am literally 100% sure that it will be useful and necessary for you. I have already read and picked up a SOHC engine taking into account the pros and cons, but you may have an opinion on this issue. Study it! Good luck!
