Can someone help me in decoding the Volkswagen Vento 1.2. TSI VIN "MEXG16604GT097984" . The dealer had earlier alloted me a April 2016 manufactured car which was rejected by me since it was more than 6 months old. Now the dealer is allotting me this car which he say is a July 2016 manufactured car.

Yes, it is July 2016 manufactured car. You can confirm the same by cross checking form 22.

9th character is the MONTH = F =June
10th character is the YEAR = G = 2016.

From the VIN the City is June manufactured.

What's it doing in the yard for 4 months?! I thought the City was selling 'well'?!

Please go ahead with caution and all proper PDI.

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.
C'estlavie, can you please update the VIN information for Brezza?

Congrats! It's February 2016 model. The fourth character 'B' represents the February month. The fifth and sixth character represents the production year and in your case, it's 16 which stands for 2016. The tenth character 'G' represents that it's a 2016 model.

VW vehicle's VIN beginning with MEX from late 2015. What's your VW model?

Thanks Grand Drive, the vehicle is a Jetta Highline TDi AT. I too was able to get partial decoding on one of the websites and got the attached results. The plant code decodes as "Ingolstadt" see attached pdf.

I always thought that the cars here are coming from Puebla, Mexico.

@Sail.
thanks for the link, but when i followed your link it shows year 2010 and mileage around 87000km? and this link http://www.myvehicledetails.com/?page_id=4 shows month of manufacture as JANUARY, 2016.

Very confusing, please help.
