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

I have a serious issue which needs clarification. I just purchased a All new Cruze 2016 on March 23rd 2016. The VIN given was MA6FJDADGFH000186. I did not check the VIN against manufactured date prior to taking delivery. On a whim I checked the manufactured date against VIN last week and it shows as JAN 2015. To be doubly sure, I mailed GM and even talked to their marketing office without any clarity. How can All new Cruze 2016 be manufactured on Jan 2015? To add to the confusion, there is a new manufactured Month and year on the name plate AG - which is JAN 2016.

So what is the truth here? Or am I decoding the VIN wrong? Any help appreciated

Nothing to worry Neil Roy, as per the VIN it is a JAN 2016 manufactured Cruze. The 9th character stands for the year of manufacture, 9th character in your VIN is G (G = 2016).

Thanks a Ton. I read in our forum that the 10th digit for Chevrolet was the year of manufacture. Below is the link

That's the reason for the confusion. Anyways your post has put my mind at peace. Thanks once again

I am in process of buying a Honda Jazz V MT Petrol.
I decoded the Chassis number, and discovered the 9th and 10th characters were "AG" meaning it's a January 2016 manufactured vehicle.

My question: Does the recent budget increase in car prices apply to my vehicle?

The VIN pattern of Chevrolet cars were changed from Feb 2011, earlier, the 10th character denoted the year of manufacture, from Feb 2011 onwards, the 9th character denotes the year of manufacture and 10th character denotes the model year of the vehicle.

Picking up the Jazz automatic tomorrow, SA has shared the VIN number - MAKGK785AG4005933

Can anybody help me decode this VIN? What all information can this give me apart from the month and year of manufacture?

Congrats on your latest acquisition.
As per the VIN, it is a January (9th character) 2016 (10th character) manufactured Jazz.

I am having trouble with my Maruti Brezza VIN.

Having asked the SA, he came back with 2 numbers, one on the chassis which is 17 alphanumerics long and starts with 'JSA' and ends with '235'.

The other number on the engine is 11 alphanumerics long and starts with J and ends with '98'.

I have not myself seen either number yet (I have to inspect the vehicle tomorrow)

I am not sure what he's given me exactly, but these aren't like the VINs I have read about on thous forum. Any suggestions on what I'm missing or should be asking for? Thanks!

Hey guys need some information. If the VIN indicates a March 2016 vehicle shouldn't the prices match pre-budget rates. The xuv I'll be booking is from then but prices are as of April 2016. Please help.
