How I wish I could help you out with this one!

But unfortunately, I can decode only Hyundai VINs, thanks to Hyundai's online tool which I posted a couple of pages before. I'm completely clueless about 17-character Maruti Suzuki VINs.

My apologies for not being able to assist you on this.

I think our expert Wildon can decode it, but he hasn't posted in a long time. We're kind of worried about this - I hope everything's well with him.

You need the last two numbers of the VIN number. What you've posted is the 17 digit chassis number. Usually under the bonnet, there should be the same number followed by a special character and then two additional numbers/letters. Those are what you need.

Try looking for the last two characters after the 17 digit code like one found in the below image:

Yes as per the decoding method on the first page it is March 2014 manufactured.

10th VIN character is E, then it represents the Year 2014
11th VIN character is 3, then it represents the Month of March

Check it the documents thoroughly before proceeding.

Congratulations, gaurav911!

Pleased to offer some assistance. However, are you sure the VIN you provided is correct? I'm not able to pull up the data for it.

The VIN you provided was MALA8516LEM139651.

If I change one character (C instead of 6), it pulls up the data perfectly well. Here are the details for MALA851CLEM139651:

It is a 1.2 Manual Asta(O).

Date of Manufacture - 2014/06/30

IHMIPB414
GRAND I10 14(INDIA PLANT-INDIA)
ZZ01(G4LAEM348388) {This is the Engine Number}
PT55(ME1772494215) {This is the Transaxle Number}
W5R PYN
DRIVE TYPE - RHD
WEATHER - THE TROPICAL ZONE
SEDAN - 5DR 5P
1200 CC - KAPPA
DOHC - MPI
GASOLINE - UNLEADED
MANUAL T/M - 5 SPEED 2WD

I'll add the full details in the form of a pdf soon.

Edit: I've created the pdf, but I'm not able to post it here (thanks to Apple's stupidity in giving its iPad rather limited functionality). Hence, I've sent you a private message. Please check your inbox for the full details.

Thanks a ton for your prompt reply.

You were spot on with the VIN no - error by the dealer who had messaged me the no. I posted earlier. Based on your information, I informed him of the mistake.

I tried using the Hyundai tool , checking out the link you had posted a couple of pages earlier. However, I was unable to extract the details even after the registration.

Thanks once again for sending the details via the PM
