Hi Wildon,

In response to Raonick's query against VIN MALBB51RLAM247169 you provided the above details even thuogh the 19th character was not known (which is for month I understand as per your initial post).

share how to get this detailed information as I am sure it would help a lot of folks including me.

Cheers

Hi Wildon,

Can you please help me in knowing my car manufacturing date.

As you have described in previous posts my VIN ends with s07 or it might be sO7 similar to the pic that you had uploaded here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post2030701 (Finding the VIN & manufacturing date/year on Indian cars) .

From your list I was able to make out that the manufacturing year is 2007 but did not get the month.
I bought the wagon r in sept 2007.

The reason why I am asking is below. I have pasted the whole post below:-

I had a bad experience with mycar pune when i booked my wagon r vxi through them in sept 2007. At that time immobilizer had started coming in all the models of maruti and I had opted for that. my car delivered me the car within 2 weeks after all the loan formalities. I am very particular about car features and was quite curious about what an immobilizer does? So i called up Maruti helpline to know more. They told me that when you start your car there is a yellow light which should glow(besides odometer) in case the car is fitted with immobilizer(not sure if this works now in newer models). I went to try that and no yellow light came on. Then i called up Maruti again to confirm. They asked me my chassis number and next day sent a representative from the regional office to inspect. He said my car didn't have that immobilizer and he confirmed that my car sold me an older make.

Had a lot of problems with that dealer.

Now that I bumped into this thread I am just curious to know what was the real manufacturing date.
Thanks,

Hi,

Hyundai VIN consist of 17 Characters as you given above.
Hyundai Chassis number consist of the 17 character VIN plus additional 2 characters which will be look like this MALBB51RLAM247169*L

In that A = 2010 and L= November

In the picture its showing as *B7 i.e B= February and 7 = Year 2007

Ah, didn't notice this post from you earlier @Torquedo, saw your post on the Chevy ownership thread linking to this one.

Here's the VIN number from my Optra that I took delivery of this week -

MA6NFACDBBH010852

From Wildon's data, this is a Feb 2011 (BB) vehicle. The 6th & 7th characters are letters in this case. Hope this helps

Based on Wildon's data on the 1st sheet, the 'CMZ' does suggest a March 2011 make.

Aaron, I am planning to buy a ford fiesta.

I did refer to the earlier pages. However, apart from year & month of manufacture, i am interested to know what do the other characters mean.

Default Re: Toyota Innova Chassis Number Location

[quote=wildon;2250686]Manufacturer: Toyota

VIN Characters: 22 (beginning with MBJ...)

Decode:

19th & 20th character represents the MONTH of Manufacture
21st & 22nd character represents the YEAR of Manufacture

I just asked my dealer for the VIN No. and got a 17 digit no beginning with:
"MBJB29BT*****9491" Seems they have given me a truncated no.
or does Etios have a different VIN system?
