Default Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)

VIN for my new car (yet to be registered): TMBBLGNAOCG025857

As per Skoda worldwide website,
Škoda Rapid 1.6 TDI 77kw
manufactured in July 2012, production number 025857
production plant Pune (IND)

Confused on this part?
The entered VIN is not valid!

This request is for my friend.
He booked a Hyundai i10, and was given the following VIN number:
MALAN51CMCM267838
It seems the format of the VIN number has changed, hence unable to find the manufacturing date. Could you please help.

Hi Wildon,

Could you please help me out with the VIN decoding for my new arrival. Its a Toyota Fortuner and my dealer has given me a VIN with 17 characters as opposed to 22 as mentioned by you.

VIN: MBJ11JV6104007018

A detailed decoding would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Wildon,
Thx a lot for your article.

I've been breaking my head trying to understand the coding for some cars that I was checking out and now I came across this article.

Very useful and that too, for different makes!!

I went to the RTO earlier today to complete the registeration formalities. This is the VIN that was etched inside the bonnet. I hope this is it

VIN: MBJ11JV6104007018 - 0912

Can you please decode the same?

Thanks,
