Looking at the VIN for my Jetta to be delivered tomorrow, I can make out that it was manufactured in Oct '12 and is a 2013 model. Is this correct?
I'm not sure where it was manufactured though. Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Abhi

Hi Wildon,

Happened to visit the Dealer to see the car which I had booked. The car is due for delivery next week on 26th April 2013.

VIN - MA3FDEB1S00437937*AD

Maruti Ritz VDI

If I decode it, guess it is Jan 2013 Manufactured.

Am i correct. let me know.

Thanks in advance.

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

Thanks again for this brilliant thread, i could easily decode my brand new XUV 500's VIN and happy to know that i got March 2013 manufactured one and not from some old stock
I was worried as i didn't have much time to get the VIN before the delivery from the dealer.

Wildon, would really appreciate if you can decode this VIN for my i20 that I have booked: MALBB51BLDM546038

I was told it's a 22nd March manufacturing date. Members, please provide your views if I should go for a car that is close to 2 months old given that 120 has sales of close to 6000 every month, presuming everything goes ok with the pre-registration check. The pre-registration check is scheduled for 11th May, so any replies before that would be of great help.

Regarding 2 months old, May be because of its a Petrol model .

Please do a PDI and make sure that everything is OK.
