First do a PDI and make sure that everything is up to the satisfactory level. you can bargain for hefty discount for a 9 month old vehicle.

It is on the quarter glass towards right side of the car. You can find a white sticker pasted there and the vin is printed on that. Usually Ford vin starts with MAJ.... 17 alphanumerical characters.

Please check the following places for your VIN:


1. Look under the driver seat. You will find a black flap, just lift that and your Vehicle Identification Number will be inscribed there.

OR

2. Look under the driver seat remove the floor mat and lift the black flap to find the VIN inscription.

@Wildon : Can you please decode this VIN for me MCA110C1B09030935DLZ.

I am very curious to know how do you get the date of manufacture for every model?

From the VIN of my car I know that it is Apr'12 manufactured, but I am curious to know the exact date.
