I had booked a Sunny XVD sometime in the end of March this year. The car has arrived at the showroom yesterday and from the VIN Number shared with me I figured out that it is a Jan 2013 car. The 10th Digit is "d" and 11th "1".
My question to the esteemed members is, is it okay to accept a Jan manufactured car in April. The delivery date has been fixed as April 12. I will be going for the PDI this Sunday and the car will be sent for registration on Monday.
On a separate note, we had purchased a Honda Jazz in 2011, during Diwali, October 24 to be precise, and that was an August 2011 manufactured model.

Hello all, need a help from you. My father booked a Maruti Swift Petrol and they informed him on the vehicle been shipped from factory. When asked for VIN number they are telling there is no VIN number for Maruti and it is all Chasis number. Is this information correct?

This should be correct. Most manufacturers (at least the sales executive at the dealerships) maintain it as Chassis Number rather than as VIN. At least three of them (not of Maruti) had corrected me that there is no VIN, but Chassis Number! The Swift's should be a 17 digit number like MA3EHKD1S00331723 and MA3FHEB1S00259646 (both VINs are of the Swift taken from previous pages of this thread).
