Default Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)

As per this article, character 9 in Honda VIN represents manufacturing month. But in Internet, all other articles say character 9 is a 'check digit' which is used to verify the accuracy of the VIN. I am confused. I purchased a Honda Brio in Dec-2015 and the VIN 9th character is 'D'. So as per this article the manufacturing month is 'April-2015', but as per the Vehicle Registration details the manufacturing month is 'Oct-2015'.

But after trying to decode it by myself i find it to be 2015- June.

Looking forward to some response at the earliest

Going by manual decoding, the month of manufacturing is June 2015. Verify with Form-22 certificate issued by manufacturer for confirmation.

Do the dealership submit Form 22 to RTO? I asked for Form 22, they said they submitted to RTO.

I asked for form 22 and dealer said its submitted to the RTO. My car has last two characters showing as GF. It's a Ciaz. As per dealer its a Nov 15 manufacture, but to me it looks like Jun 2015. Is my guess right?

Hi guys,

I have received VIN number for Maruti Suzuki S-Cross 1.3. The dealer tells me that the month/year of manufacture is Jan 2016. The last 2 characters of the VIN are A4.

From Maruti Suzuki VIN Decoder (ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)) post, I can see that A stands for month of January. But what about the number 4? Does it mean 2016? The number 5 stands for 2005 (and the number was incremented in every subsequent year), so maybe they have reset the number to 4 to represent manufacturing year of 2016.

Can anybody confirm this?

Hi,

I have been made to understand by my NEXA dealer that they have changed the VIN Format of NEXA cars as opposed to regular Maruti cars. In NEXA cars, (S Cross & Baleno), the 10th & 11th characters of the VIN specify Year & Month, respectively.

Since your dealer claims the car to be a Jan 2016 manufactured, the 10th & 11th characters in your VIN should be GA. (G = 2016, A = January)

Hope this helps. Cheers!

I don't think this is true. The 10th and 11th characters in the VIN given to me are digits. I still feel that it is the last 2 characters of the VIN which determine the manufacturing month and year.

I am not too sure either. Have you received a 21 character VIN from your dealer? I received a 17 character VIN from my dealer on allotment of my Baleno last week. Did a PDI yesterday and found the same 17 character VIN stamped in the engine bay of my car, as opposed to the regular 21 characters. On further enquiry, i was told about the change in VIN format for NEXA cars.

Btw, i have GA as the 10th & 11th characters of my VIN. Also, all the tyres are Jan 2016 manufactured (0116), so i am assuming that the car is Jan 2016 manufactured too... hence i bought his logic. You may inquire further with your dealer. (Last 2 digits of my VIN is 84)
