You can either write a Workflow rule or a Trigger to update this fields. It depends on you whichever you select either or them.
I would suggest that you use Visual Workflow to provide the user with a single form to collect the account and contact information.  The Flow can then create the appropriate case and link it to the appropriate VIN based on the informaiton it has collected.  Here's a Dreamforce session that describes how to accomplish this type of change: http://t.co/XfIBaqf1Iv
