function SaveVehicle() {

    var listName = "vehicleList";
    var newVINNumber = document.getElementById('txtVINNumber').value;
    var newVehicleYear = document.getElementById('txtVehicleYear').value;
    var newPlateID = document.getElementById('txtPlateID').value;
    var newCurrentMileage = document.getElementById('txtCurrentMileage').value;

    CreateListItemWithDetails(listName, _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl, newVINNumber, newVehicleYear,
        newPlateID,newCurrentMileage, function () {
        console.log("New Item has been created successfully.");
    }, function () {
        console.log("Ooops, an error occured. Please try again.");

function CreateListItemWithDetails(listName, webUrl, newVINNumber, newVehicleYear,
        newPlateID,newCurrentMileage, success, failure) {
    var itemType = GetItemTypeForListName(listName);
    var item = {
        "__metadata": { "type": itemType },
        "VINNumber": newVINNumber,
        "VehicleYear": newVehicleYear,
        "PlateID": newPlateID,
