Dear Mr. Wildon.

Would you be so kind as to help me decode the following Maruti VIN? I tried using the formula (?..if I may call that), but couldn't decode it, since the year ends at 2013.

VIN: MA3EVB11SO1498165

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks,
Simple_car

Hi Wildon, Patron Saint of VIN decoding.

If you would be so kind as to decode this VW VIN and tell me it's month of import and manufacture, I'd be much obliged: WVWM13164EA550449.

4th character "A" = January
5th & 6th characters "1 & 4" = Production Year 2014
10th character "E" = Model Year 2014

These are the details I could decode for you, if further details are required, only Wildon would be able to help you!

Default Difference between VIN, Chasis and Engine Number?

Apologies for asking this basic question as I am new to the world of cars. I booked my first car and the Hyundai Dealer gave me the Engine Number and Chassis Number for buying the Insurance.Both these numbers are numeric and do not have any alphabets. The Insurance agent told me that the Chassis number should be Alphanumeric.

Has the Hyundai dealer given me incorrect or incomplete Chassis number?

Default Re: Difference between VIN, Chasis and Engine Number?

You should first search and see the information available on the forum.

A good point to start would be Wildon's thread on decoding VIN, Hyundai post below
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/buying...ml#post2249666 (ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN))

Engine Number is entirely different.

However, Chassis Number is a subset of VIN.

You seem to have got only the Serial Numbers of the individual parts.
A VIN generally consists of Country Code + Chassis Type Code + Serial Number which may or may not include MMYY of manufacturing.
A Engine Number consists of Engine Type Code + Serial Number

A little more search on net should give much more indepth information.

Some times, these Dealer ship people are lazy to take a note of the complete VIN no/ Chassis no and the Engine no of your vehicle.
They only refer the numerical part of it.
Any of these nos are mostly Alpha numeric. Pls ask him to quote the complete no for good traceability in any documents.

There is a very good thread on this forum. Pls search again to get the complete information.
