Recheck the VIN specially 07044778 part, so i can give you the exact production date/month/year details.

In general its a October 2012 Manufactured vehicle by going by the KLZ code.


By going by the VIN you provided before you edited the post;

Make: Fiat
Model: Grande Punto -Dynamic
Engine: 1.3-JTD-75CV-CF4
Engine Number: 0314397
Production Date: 23.10.2012

Is it allowed to Help Wildon and give details for VIN asked by other fellow members.

I am not full time here, but thought a person who has dedicated himself to help so many members should certainly have a few helping hands to lessen his burden.

Just received mail from the dealer (though he removed KLZ in this mail !)

VIN: MCA118B5E07044778
Colour: MINIMAL GREY (SILVER)
Engine No: 315839
Vehicle: PUNTO
Variant: DYNAMIC
Description: FIAT PUNTO 1.3 JTD 16V 76PS DYNAMIC MY-2
Status: VPC Yard- Vehicle Parked India
Date of Manufacture: 10/27/2012

Is he making a true representation or there is catch somewhere?

Many thanks for your help once again

I'm not able to get the details from the VIN provided. I don't think there is any catch, but make sure that the given numbers are matching when you do the PDI.

Hey Wildon, sorry to bother you with this since you have done this so many times over for so many people but still we BHP-ians never let you rest. Somehow the Etios Liva that I got last weekend does not match the 22-digit formula shown for Toyota cars in this thread. The car Chassis no. is marked as MBJK3ZBT400019915~0513. Can you please decode?

Hi Wildon,

I decoded this VIN 'WVWE13608DT060138' as May-2013. Please confirm if it's correct.

Also, received this VIN "MA3FHEB1S00466843" of a friend who booked a Swift recently. Appreciate your help in decoding it.

Thanks in advance.
