Hello Wildon,

I will be a proud owner of a Chevvy Cruze in the span of next couple of days. VIN details were provided by Dealer and I decoded it to be June 2012. This does not seem correct based on feedback by Dealer. I would be grateful if you can provide the production detail for the following VIN:

MA6JFDFDDCH003901

Many Thanks in Advance....

I appreciate your quick response. I was thrown off by the earlier method of ascertaining the details of VIN for Chevrolet vehicles and without being aware of changes post Feb11. Your posts in Tbhp and Automotiveindia were rich source of information. Is there is a chance you can provide a detailed production/component report for my vehicle?

Thanks...

Would it be possible to decode and give details of this i10. By looking at your post on 1st page I have decoded it to be June 2013 manufactured but would it be possible to give detailed decoding including the Date of manufacture like you have done in some posts before. Thanks in advance.
VIN No: MALAN51CMDM453982xF

Thanks wildon. Looks like you have got a good source to get all details.

Is it possible for you to find out the status of vehicle based on the VIN. As in if you can find out if the vehcile is in transit or delivered at yard etc.

The reason I ask is because a week ago, the SA asked me to sort the finance since vehicle is already in yard. Today another person says vehicle has not come yet.

I think the dealer just added an ICE and sold it, as I dont have the chrome trims nor the Electrically adjustable OVRMs.

There was this other thread where-in you send a detailed car report with equipment list. Could you please help me generate that.

My Car VIN : TMBBLGNA7CG026827

My Cousin's VIN where in he has the above said features : TMBBLCNA4DG012796

Both these would help me compare the equipment levels.
Results from http://igorweb.org/vindec - Not enough information though.

TMBBLGNA7CG026827
Škoda Rapid 1.6 TDI 77kw
manufactured in July 2012, production number 026827
production plant Pune (IND)
The entered VIN is valid!

TMBBLCNA4DG012796
Škoda Rapid 1.6 TDI 77kw
manufactured in March 2013, production number 012796
production plant Pune (IND)
The entered VIN is valid!
