I can understand that this is a August'12 manufactured car. Dealer says that this is in transit and they have not received it yet. Does fiat keep cars for so long at their factory yards? Is there a a risk of a unit with complaints that has beed returned and repaired? Is this normal?
Looking at the FIAT sales it is possible that cars are kept in yards for longer periods. Do a PDI to make sure that everything is up to your satisfactory level.

Hey Wildon,

Is the I missing in the Month series intentional or is it a typo?

10th character represents the YEAR of Manufacture
19th character represents the MONTH of Manufacture

An Example:

If your 10th VIN character is A, then it represents the Year - 2010
If your 19th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month - July

Month Codes:

A = JAN
B = FEB
C = MAR
D = APR
E = MAY
F = JUN
G = JUL
H = AUG
J = SEP
K = OCT
L = NOV
M = DEC

Year Codes:

A = 2010
B = 2011
C = 2012
D = 2013
E = 2014
F = 2015
G = 2016
H = 2017
J = 2018
K = 2019
