I am not able to find the link for decoding the Renault VIN. Can someone please help me out with the link. Booked a Kwid yesterday and dealer ascertains to have it delivered before March 28. I have asked them to share the VIN details before registering under my name. Expecting a Feb 2017 model, but nevertheless would like to be doubly sure. Please share the link.

Guys please help me decode this VIN. The car is Maruti Celerio VXI AMT. Here is the VIN-: MA3ETDE1S00394957. The 10th and 11th digits are 00 so I'm not able to find out the month and year of manufacture. Hope to hear soon.

Thanks

By the VIN stamped, last two letters of the VIN is what tells the manufacturing month and year.

"B H" which is nothing but February (B) 2017 (H) model.

Thank you !! do you think i can go in for this vehicle ? the dealer is offering me considerate discounts.

I am intending to have a look at the vehicle before deciding further and have made it very clear to the dealer also.

Hi Wildon,

I found a site which gives ready VIN Details, but not all details are available like the exact engine number or the particular model

The site that I just came across is :-

https://vindecoder.eu

For example for the VIN [MA3ETDE1S00394957], the details I got is as follows :-

Manufacturer:
Maruti Suzuki India Limited
Manufacturer Address:
Plot No. 1 Nelson Mandela Road
Vasant Kunj
New Delhi DL 110070
Product Type: Passenger Cars
Make: Maruti Suzuki
Check Digit: S
Model Year: 10th character in VIN code is not recognized (U, Z and 0).
Plant Country: India
Sequential Number: 394957

For the VIN [MALBM51RLGM311002]

Manufacturer:
Hyundai Motors India Ltd
Manufacturer Address:
Plot No. H-1Sipcot Industrial Park
Irrugattukottai Sriperumbudur
Taluk Kancheepuram
Product Type: Passenger Cars - Including Mpv & Rv
Make: Hyundai
Check Digit: L
Model Year: 2016
Plant Country: India
Sequential Number: 311002

For the VIN [WVWB16166GA551145]

Manufacturer:
Volkswagen AG
Manufacturer Address:
Berliner Ring 2
Wolfsburg/Hannover
Make: Volkswagen
Model: Beetle
Check Digit: 6
Model Year: 2016
Plant Country: Germany
Sequential Number: 551145

Apparently, the site is able to produce more accurate details for some and not for others. Is there any particular site one can refer to get details about cars available in India (the new ones that are being sold). I understand that details like the Month and Year are identifiable by the VIN. But how to get the corresponding Engine / Chassis number associated with that particular VIN along with the respective Make, Model and Color of the particular vehicle.
