Folks,

I have booked a Nano Special Edition and below is the VIN number that i have got from the dealer:

MAT612257CKF47756

So if this is decoded it comes to June 2012. Is it a good idea to accept a 6 month old vehicle lying in the yard.

Another point is the special edition was launched sometime in Diwali so i wonder how come it was manufactured in June.

The add ons to the Special Editions are

Alloy wheels
Music System with MP3, USB, Aux-in and front door speakers
Two glove boxes
Body graphics

It may be added from the factory itself. Please do a PDI and make sure everything is up your satisfactory level.

Hello Wildon

Need help with this VIN. It is for a Hyundai i20 1.2l petrol. It is only 17 digits.

MALBB51BLCM476033

Based on your last reply to a post just above this, it should be 01.09.2012. Is this correct?

Hey wildon I used your decoder to decode the VIN of my newly booked Ford Fiesta (The New Fiesta not Classic.) From your decoding pattern it seems to be a March 2012 vehicle but the dealer says it isn't.

can you provide more details on the following VIN
MAJ2XXMPJ2CA54790

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the info wildon. Asked for a new car one hour back. Can't believe the extents to which the dealers will go to cheat unsuspecting customers. Sad!

Hi Wildon,
Can you please let know, how different is the model year denoted by the VIN specify? Somewhere read that, it is the model year and not the year of maufacture. Is this true?

^^ For model year please refer here

Our system doesn't consider the Model year while registering a vehicle. Vehicles register here by looking at which month and year it actually manufactured, most of the time which can be identified from the Chassis number and some cases from manufactured declared certificate.

Also please refer the first page of this thread to know different manufactures Chassis/VIN format.

Hi Wildon,

I have been assigned a Volkswagen Vento with VIN: WVWK12600DT024909. Please decode it for me. If it is not too much trouble, can you also provide me the PDF report?

Regards,
Prasad
