11th character of Hyundai VIN represent Manufacturing Plant code
i.e M= Chennai.

Check on the floor under the drivers seat in which you can find a code as MALBT51HR5M018408*J , in that 10th Charactor 5 = Year 2005 and J= September

In that you can find the full Chassis number . for e.g MA3EHKD1S00203437*XX

if the last two characters as BC then its February 2012 manufactured Vehicle.

Hi Wildon,

The following VIN was provided to my friend for his Vento booking:

WVWL11609CT016532

Dealer has mentioned that it's a 2011 vehicle. This seems to be manufactured in November, but year seems to be 2012 (based on the decoding format provided in this thread).

Can you please confirm the manufacturing date of the car and is it possible to get a detailed PDF on the car?

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

Hello Fellow BHPians,

This is my first post in Team-BHP.

I have booked a Maruti Swift Dzire Vxi (Glistening Grey) which will be delivered to me on 29th February 2012 (Leap Year Day) after registration.

I noted down the Chassis No. which reads MA3EJKDIS00110556. Can someone decode it for me please.

Zoooom,
Arun

So all Chevrolet owners who've booked post February 2011, this is for you:

Typical Chevrolet VIN (mine): MA6JFDADCBH-xxxxxx
  • Chars 1-3: Manufacturer Code (MA6)
  • Char 7: Month of Manufacturing (in my case A = January)
  • Char 9: Year of Manufacturing (in my case C = 2012)
  • Char 10: Model Year (in my case B = 2011)
  • Char 11: Manufacturing Plant Location (H = Halol)

We will do the necessary changes to the opening post of this thread after confirming this.
Chevrolet owners,

Confirmation that it is indeed the 7th letter for month and 9th letter for year.

Cheers,

Ghostrider.
