Please help me in decoding the below VIN number for a Fiat Linea. The opening post by Wildon has the year numbers coded only till 2012. I was able to decode the month as January but clueless about the year:

MCA110HD209034432AJZ

Will appreciate a quick reply from any of the members who can help out. Thanks in advance.

Need immediate help in decoding this VIN of this Toyota Altis; MBJ53ZEE207614305.

It needs to be confirmed as to whether this car is an AT or MT.

E = 2014
F = 2015
G = 2016
H = 2017
J = 2018
K = 2019

You would need to ask for the 19 digit number. The same happened to me when i was taking delivery of my vehicle. we have to insist on them to share the 19 digit number.

But i have seen i a previous post, Wildon was decoding the VIN with only 17 digits. He might come handy here as well. (Hoping so)

It's been over two months Wildon posted a reply in this thread (or elsewhere in the forum).

Hope everything is alright man?

I am also scouting around for VIN Guru Wildon. My post #1003 for the Corolla Altis VIN, went abegging.

It appears that super Guru is not around as my earlier post on the subject eight days back is still open.
VIN Gurus, can anyone help me get detailed info of this Corolla Altis with VIN MBJ53ZEE207614305.

I have got the last eight characters for Mahindra XUV.

I tried the decoding post on page 1 of this thread.
The part of the VIN I got is E6DXXXXX
Based on that, I know it is a 2014 (E), April (D) vehicle.

Are the previous parts important as well?

I booked a Hyundai car and have finished payment formalities. The dealer gave me a 17 digit VIN. He said that VIN numbers are 17 digits only and not 19. Not sure since I kept insisting its 19 and the SA finally showed me the paperwork for a Grand i10 which had been invoiced and it was indeed 17 and he had me compare it with the delivery car to assuage my fears. Can someone help? I can provide the VIN if needed?
