Congrats! Please ask your sales advisor to provide the full VIN as Maruti Suzuki's VIN has 21 characters. The last two characters (20 & 21) of the VIN represent the month and year respectively.

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'.
Congrats! Maruti Suzuki's VIN has 21 characters. Please refer this image from our official review for the location of the VIN.

Congrats! The price of the vehicle is applicable as to the delivery date and not based on the vehicle's VIN.

Congrats! It's July 2013 model. The tenth character 'D' represents the year 2013 and the eleventh character '7' represents the July month.

Not sure if this is still relevant, as you have already booked your vehicle.

As per my understanding, the hikes announced in the budget were applicable immediately- i.e. from 1st March. Mahindra absorbed the hikes only for the booking and deliveries in March. As you are booking now, the new/ increased rate would apply.

Cheers

Why don't you check your booking document once? In the terms and conditions, you'll find mentioned:

"Prices prevailing at the time of delivery would be applicable!!"

Hence you'll be billed the latest pricing and not pre-budget pricing.

Thanks. If the 10th and 11th character represent the year and month in this format, mine are GC.

That means G= 2016 and C= March, right?

The last two characters (20 & 21) of the VIN represent the month and the year respectively. If your 20th character is 'C', then it represents the March month and the 21st character 'G' represents the year 2016.

Edit: Maruti Suzuki Brezza's VIN has 17 characters. Are the tenth and eleventh character must be taken for the VIN decode? Please clarify.

If you see the link you had originally suggested to me*, it has 17 characters, and there are no alphabets at the end but numbers.

My Brezza has the same sequence.

I was reading somewhere that in such sequences for Maruti, the 10th and 11th characters represent the VIN.

Hence my current confusion, i.e. I am not sure at all.

* Pasting the link below you originally suggested to save time:

Hope this post (The Maruti Vitara Brezza @ Auto Expo 2016) clears the confusion.

I'll get back and update you when I pick up my vehicle today.

However, in the interim, I am not sure if the information in the link above matches what I am seeing in my Brezza.

I did take some pics of my Brezza yesterday and as far as I can see from these pics, even the 'under the bonnet VIN' does not have the 21 characters your link speaks of.

Just the $ type special character followed by 17 characters ended by the same $ type special character.

Will get back.

The dealer is insisting that it is a March built car. Need to show this this information. Again Thanks a ton.
