could anybody please find the details of

MAKGG172FCN204270

The dealer told me it was a june 2012 vehicle. I have decided to go ahead with the purchase. Should it be a problem being 3 month old?

My friend is buying a Honda City and the VIN number provided by the dealership is MAKGM251ECN301603. Can you please let me know the manufacturing month/year.

Hi Wildon,

Just got my VIN from the dealer - MALBB51BLCM473702

From your guide, I can make out its 2012 manufactured but can you help decode the rest?

Thanks in advance

Hi WildOn,
Is there a way I can capture your knowledge about VIN decoding of Indian Cars in a software with web interface. I am willing to do what it takes to learn it . Please PM me if that works.

BTW, I am trying to decode FIAT Palio's. Can you please decode: MAH178636 08034670
I am able to make guess of first section which is Fiat India(MAH) + Palio(178) + GTX(636) . But clueless about next part.

I am also not sure how can I create a generic approach to identify all Palio models in India. Codes for Punto/Linea are already mentioned in this thread so less worried about that.

Thanks in Advance.
