Ask the SA for the complete 19 character VIN. The last two characters which indicate the month of manufacturing are missing. But looking at the sequence number, it might be a Oct or Nov 2015 manufactured vehicle.

Congrats! It's November 2015 model. The tenth character 'F' represents the year 2015 and the twelfth character 'N' represents the November month.

Hi Guys

Booked a Hyundai Grand i10 and here's what I could make out of the VIN that the sales rep provided. Can you let me know if I have missed out something?
VIN: MALA851DLFM394526. Additionally, the sales manager showed me some data on her screen (I wasn't peeping, promise!) - they have something called as 'aging' listed too; mine shows that it was signed off & dispatched on the 19th from the factory, so the aging was showing up as '07' when I checked on Saturday. Going in for a PDI today, hopefully this will also go through and will be ready to get the car delivered in the new year!

1. M Asia (India)
2. A HMI (Hyundai Motor India)
3. L Class of vehicle – Light Motor Vehicle (Car)
4. A Model – Xcent (actually it’s a Grand i10, but will let this pass)
5. 8
6. 5 Type of car – 5 door hatchback
7. 1 Safety features – Active 3-point (? - not sure if this is right since the one I've booked is a dual airbag + ABS one)
8. D
9. L
10. F 2015 – year of manufacture
11. M Plant – Chennai, India
12. X
13. X
14. X
15. X
16. X
17. X
18. *
19. M December – month of manufacture

Hi mayankk - Congrats on the Xcent! Which color did you go for?

The 10th letter is 'F' indicating a 2015 year manufacture; can you get the last 2 digits in the VIN? The one that you've given is 17 digits which gives you the country, plant and year of manufacture (these are the ones of primary interest). The last 2 digits (18th and 19th) would be something like (as an example):
*M -> M indicating December manufacture.

Thanks. It's a silver one for my sister. I'm just trying to wangle the last two digits from the dealer.

Default Re: Volkswagen VIN Decoding

I am about to take delivery of a Vento Comfortline, here is the VIN : MEXF1560XFT105820

As per this guide, I decoded it to be a June 2015 make and 2015 model. I was promised a September 2015 make. When I pointed this out to the dealer, he is saying that only the Chasis is manufactured in June and the car was assembled in October.

Is this standard operating procedure or is the dealer trying to fleece me?
