0 and O are NOT used from what I understand to avoid confusion. Seems I'll have to check back. Could be D as you mentioned.

Wildon my friend, looks like Hyundai has reverted back to it's 17-character VIN numbers, from the 19-character VINs in recent times.

Booked an EON for my wife. Can you get more details from this?

MALA251ALEM274721

10th character is E, so it's a 2014 make. Color is Sleek Silver.

I would appreciate any/all other details you can bring up. The car is currently in transit from it's Chennai plant to my city, and delivery date quoted is 11/03/2014.

All

My SIL, has booked a Punto 90HP, Tuscan Wine
About to take delivery
The VIN shared is as

MCA 118 54D 0 7052832 B JZ

MCA 118 54D 0 7052832 B JZ
FIAL PUNTO 90HP Engine# Feb 2014

I am interpreting this as shown above.
All earlier threads show the HP as 34D for the 90 HP Punto, this is showing 54D, Hence the query,

Please clarify the above, thanking you.

Wildon, I'm confused by this one from VW - WVWL14600ET049642.

The L seems to suggest it's a November 2013 manufactured car (Vento TSI), while model year is 2014. Could this have something to do with car/part import dates and final factory-leaving dates? I know for a fact that it only arrived at the dealership last week, so it isn't an old car in that sense.

My fault, please ignore this. That is a wrong VIN. The new one makes sense, shows it is Feb. 2014 car.
