Dear Wildon,

Sorry to have bothered you, can you please decode the VIN of a XUV500?

VIN : M A 1 Y L 2 H J U C 6 G 7 2 3 6 3

In my opinion its July 2012, can you please reconfirm.

Regards
Sid

Hi wildon, I have received VIN of i20 as MALBB51RLCM454096.

The year of manufacture is clearly 2012. But there are only 17 characters. How to decode the month?

Hi Wildon,

Hope you can help me with the nuances with this one?
I know it is a June 2011, Fiat Linea T-Jet (BS4) with serial no 09027811 , but anything more than this?

MCA11041E09027811FMZ

Thanks in advance.

Wildon!

I got my VIN today for Honda Jazz: M A K G G 1 7 1 G C N 2 0 0 6 3 1.

From your guide, I could find out that it is July 2012 make. Is there some more information that you could possibly decode for us?

Many Thanks.
