HI. If I am not mistaken, that's an Apr-2012 manufactured car! I hope you got a good discount to take that car. I booked in Aug and was firm I needed Aug manufactured car. Infact I got my vin when I paid my booking amount, else I was ready to walk out to the next showroom.

Hi, thanks for info. This one is my tenent's purchase 1.2L zxi & he wanted to know when it was manufactured.
Mine is 1.4L titanium bought in June'12 and this guy was inspired by my car's VFM & he too purchased Figo.
He got free insurance, extended warranty & accessories worth of 14K.

Default Re: Fish me out of this 15 lac soup!

I now have a Skoda Laura CR TDi Elegance MT. VIN says manufacture date as June 2012. When VIN decoded online, it says "assembled in Aurangabad". So probably this may be assembly date? Is there a way to make out CKD kit manufacture date? But put it in clear terms to the dealer that you will not take it if VIN says manufacture date is older than certain month. Just to make sure of this I requested bank to hold disbursing the loan DD till I personally inspect the vehicle. It went according to my satisfaction ultimately.

Folks, I need your help to decode the VIN for a Suzuki Kizashi. It is JSAFRE91SBG100637.

I am not buying one. A good friend and colleague is.

Being a direct import, I guess the car does not follow the VIN system Maruti Suzuki India use.

I tried a couple of websites to decode this VIN but it says it is incorrect and that is impossible as the dealer photographed the VIN and sent it to me when I pointed out a possible mistake in the VIN he had sent me over text message.
