Thanks RSR
But this is the VIN given by the dealership for the new Hyundai I 20 my Dad booked on 1st Jan.
Why does it say 5 Door Sedan?
And yes, would you please send the details across via PM?
Thanks!

You're welcome! I've sent you a PM with all the available information.

In some contexts, the word "sedan" may be used to denote any car with a fixed hard roof (as opposed to a soft roof convertible) and not just a 3-box saloon car. My guess is that a 5 door sedan should be read as a vehicle with a fixed roof and 5 doors (in other words, a hatchback/hatchback-like car) in this context.

Since terms like sedan, cabriolet, station wagon etc. are very old and date back to the days of horse-drawn carriages or even earlier, their original meaning may be somewhat different from the modern usage of such terms.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedan_(automobile):

A vehicle with four passenger doors and a liftgate at the rear can be called a four-door hatchback, four-door hatchback sedan, or five-door sedan.

You're welcome!

I'm quite clueless about what the interior colour code HZ means.

The exterior paint is PJW, which I understand is Hyundai's code for the colour "Pure White".

Hi Wildon,

Could you help decode the VIN "MDHFBUK13DA203056" for me?
This is for a Nissan Micra Active and with help from your tips, I could decode it to be Oct 2013 manufactured vehicle. Could you give me more details and confirm the month/year of manufacture too ? This is being bought for my folks at home and our decision to buy it or not will be based on whether it is a Dec 2013 manufactured car or not.

Thanks.
