Hi Wildon,

My Friend is about to pick up an Audi A6. Request you to decode the VIN

WAUZMB4G4CY000648

Found something on the Web, but could not fully decode it.

Hi Wildon, Can you please help in finding the month and year of manufacture of the Vento, that I booked. The VIN is WVWK11608CT013925.

Prima facie, it appears to be a Oct 2012 model. Does it mean it is a 2012 model manufactured in Oct? Can you please clarify. Thanks.

Hi Wildon,

I have got my VIN number from the SA for TATA Manza as follows and he told manfacturing date as 1-Jan-2012

MAT613040CLA00266

from this I can decode it to be manfactured on Jan-2012,but how to find the production date of the same?

Also when I checked with him why it takes so long to ship the vehicle when production date is 1-Jan-2012 he told me that manfacturing date is for frame only and all the remaining parts has to be assembled and it may take 2-4 weeks for the same.is it true ?

Regards

Hi Wildon, could you please help with whatever details possible. I do not have the VIN no. as yet.

Chassis No. is WDC1641222A656221

It is a Mercedes ML350 manufactured sometime in 2011. I would like to have exact date of manufacture if possible.

Thanks.

Hi Wildon,

Can you please check this VIN - MALBB51BLCM389742*A

Our friend rejected the earlier car and is looking to get a 2012 manufactured car.

Thanks!

Hi Wildon,

A couple of friends of mine are getting a car and their dealer had promised 2012 cars. He gave them 2 VINs MALBB51BLCM389740 and MALBB51BLBM382478. When questioned why one car is 2011 manufactured he asked him to change the B in the 10th character to C, so that it becomes MALBB51BLCM382478. Can you please find which of these are valid VINs and the details of it?
