Hello Wildon, Thank you for that. Its nice that my report had the gear & axle ratios, I was struggling to get that info from other places.

If you don't mind my asking, how are you getting these reports? Is it through a central agency (like SIAM), or from individual manufacturers?

Hi Wildon,
Can you please decode MAJAXXMRKADA36188.

Seems its a July manufactured vehicle, wondering why it took 2 months to reach the dealer.

Any other ecosport owners who got a 2 month old manufactured car?

I got a 1.5 months old car, if the piece of paper I found inside the glove box could be believed. The date read 8th July, while I got allocation on Aug 23.

One of my beliefs is that the car was initially allocated to somebody else first and the deal probably did not go through.

In TAI somebody got a May manufactured car in Sep. It is best to stop worrying and enjoy the car.

What variant is yours? 2 months should not be an issue at all.
My friend got a May manufactured Titanium ecoboost allocated in September and had multiple followups with the Dealer and Ford India, to understand the reason.

What Ford says is the VIN number is generated before the car goes into the assembly line for a lot of backoffice documentation required by Ford / Government. In some particular cases, where the documentation work gets stuck for some reason, the VIN date does not reflect the manufacturing date.

In my friend's case he got a written communication from Ford that the vehicle was directly retailed by the dealer from the plant and the date when the vehicle was billed to the dealer (which was september) to give him some peace of mind.

We can speculate on a lot of reasons from vehicle not clearing the initial QC to the vehicle getting sourced from some other dealer, but the best thing to do as you have mentioned in the end is to stop worrying and start enjoying the vehicle. Especially when so many people are still patiently waiting for their prebooked cars.
