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

Hey Wildon,

My brother is buying an I20 Sportz and was able to get the following -

VIN # - MALBB51BLCM511428

I am able to determine the 'Year of Manufacture' but have been struggling to decipher the Month.

Can you please decode this and also mention how do I determine the Month on a Hyundai car from a VIN, which of late, has only 17 digits as oppose to an earlier 19 digits.

Hi Wildon

The dealer claims that this RITZ is Jan 2012 made.
Is it correct?

MA3FDEBIS00366292AC
Apart from this Engine no is given near the door D13A (then space is there) 1778274.

Can you please decode this for me?

Default decoding Honda Brio VIN Code

e.g:MAKDD172ECN001234
MAK DD1 7 2 EC N001234

1,2,3rd character- Manufacturer. MAK = Honda Cars India
4,5,6 - Model. DD1 = Brio
7th - Body type + Transmission. 7= 4 door hatchback, manual
8th - Grade/Variant Codes:
Quote:
1= EX MT
2= S(O)MT
3= V MT
4= S MT
Not a comprehensive list. These are the 4 variants I could confirm.
9th:Month of Mfg
10th: Year of Mfg
11th: Assembly Plant. N=Noida.
12-16th = Production sequence number

Thanks to Wildon for this great thread.
