No you have to ask for the full chassis number which contain two more characters apart from the 17 characters what you have provided here.

Can you recheck the VIN please as normally letter I (i) wont use in VIN Characters. Also 10th Character which normally represents year is looking odd.

Hi Wildon,

Need your help to decode (with all possible details) the following VIN No. of Tata Safari:

MAT403725CNB02832

I hope this is the correct number which I have got from the sales person.

Cheers!

Thanks Wildon for such a QUICK (read 3 minutes) reply.

I had also figured out the same but wanted to confirm. It seems that there is some confusion with the sales person. Need to contact him on this.

Cheers!

Thank you, Wilson.

Given your accurate description and Toyota's easy code format, things turned out satisfactory.

Car: Toyota Etios
Version: VD
Chassis: MBJB49BT600019332-0312

Guess that surely means March (03) & 2012 (12) as production month.

Within the same info palette was a section for

Body: K 0696 08/03/2012 11:04

Enough to help me take delivery tomorrow, without too much of a worry.
