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

I am waiting for the VIN details from the dealer (as I have booked the Renault Kwid, 1.0L manual), but they have shared the Engine and Chassis number. Very surprising as to what is stopping them from sharing the VIN.

Nevertheless, is it possible, to get the VIN details from the Engine and Chassis number?

Chassis number : MEEBBAOOXH2469346
Engine number : E043179

I am interested for the Manufacturing Month (preferably March 2017) along with the other engine details like make and model.

***
Not too sure if chassis and VIN are same, but apparently if so, then it seems to be a February 2017 made model. Is that correct? Is it good to take this car at March?

This is the VIN number. It is Feb 2017 manufactured vehicle. I don't see any problem in taking a Feb 2017 vehicle in March unless there is any problem found during your PDI

I was going through the Kerala RTO site and found a document which has the details of how to decode VIN to get the manufacturing Year and Month. I hope this helps as single point of access for all the vehicles manufactured after 2010

Thank you very much!

Now the dealer tells me it's an end of March manufacturing. Same thing had happened last time as well that the VIN decode said some 3-4 months earlier than what the dealer claimed. But dealer explained that VIN decode shows the date on which the kit gets manufactured in Germany and that will always be a few months earlier to local assembly.

Is this correct? Or is the dealer lying to me and giving me a 2016 car?
