Thanks Wildon.
When production month is September (J), how come production date is of October month.

Is it possible to get more information from VIN no?

Hi Wildon,

Please help with decoding the Ford Figo 1.4 EXI Trim Vin.

MAJ1XXMRJ1BM19526.

If I enter this Vin number in the wesite you gave in earlier posts, it says wrong VIN number.

But going by the logic you have given in the first page, i understand it as Nov 2011 manufactured vehicle.

Mods. Please bear with me, i tried my best to edit my post, but i couldn't, so a quoted post.

Dear Wildon,

From your inputs, i inferred it's a October 2011 model (BEAT DIESEL), shall I go ahead with the registration, as it's already 2 months, (sandrift grey colour) when i enquired with the dealer, he said normally they get models with one month delay i.e October manufactured model in November etc., He sais since its a new model no issues at all and if i need a new model, i need to pay extra money, as the prices are increased.

KMS in ODO - 12 KMS.

PLEASE ADVICE. Vehicle is ok except rusting in wheel nuts and he said its normal during rainy season as the vehicle was in yard.

Hi Wildon/All, I am contemplating to bring home Fiat Grande Punto 1.2 Petrol Active (BN White) and the VIN# MCA11815DXXXXXXXXDMZ which from what I gathered from our forum that car is of April 2011 make..... I had told the Salesperson that this is not acceptable and I would expect a vehicle manufactured not more than 2 months earlier max...... I am availing the year end offers [10K Cash+3500 RSA+Free Insurance], I have though given the Booking Amount of 10K to Concorde Dairy Circle, BLR.

Now the Salesperson's team-lead has approached me telling that he only has this car and even in FIAT's inventory there are no cars for the year 2011. He said he can offer me additional discounts... I had earlier asked for accessories like body colored door handles/mirrors, door sil+Punto Pillows, Standard Accesories.... Now I have additionally asked for Autocop Remote Locking sys + 50% on Music System with 4 speakers (~13K)

Please guide so as to what should be done next. Should I go ahead with booking , is it advisable to buy a April 2011 make car in Dec 2011? Were there any significant under the hood changes beyond Apr"2011 till now?

If you found the vehicle is ok after PDI then proceed. 2month is OK.

Toyota vehicles do carry the month and year code after the 17 character. VIN. but in etos vehicles in saw this in the first time, that's why the word 'hope'.

Can you tell me the location of this code which you have found in the vehicle

If you are looking for discounts then bargain for the cash discounts, not for the cheap accessories.

Or else its not worth for going for a April model now.

Meril, I got my TDI Highline delivered in the 4th week of Nov and my manufacturing date per the VIN was on the first week of Nov. If you have not already got your unit (your current VIN reads mid Oct manufacturing) push you dealer to get a recent unit. Alternatively ensure that you visit the vehicle on the day its unloaded at your dealers yard. Don't accept any excuses.
