Any idea why it isnt available? Is it the case for Ertiga/Maruti or for this vehicle only? Would it become available later? Should I be concerned about this unavailability?

Wildon, Could you decode this Hyundai i20 VIN for me?

MALBB51RLDM560489

In the first page, I see that Hyundai VIN should be 19 digits - but towards the latest posts, I see that you have decoded even a 17 character VIN (incidentally, the VIN I posted also consists of ONLY 17 character). Why is there a change now - something you are aware of ?

Wildon, my friend got this vehicle allocated 10 days back and is waiting for it to arrive in the yard.

He was curious as to how with such high demand, a 4 month old vehicle got allocated. Suspicious as to the vehicle was used for any marketing/display or related purpose, he followed up with Ford Customer care. Ford customer care indicated in a written communication that build of the vehicle (though has a May VIN) was completed in September only and is directly retailed from the plant to the dealer.

Are you aware as to when the VIN is generated? Is it once when the vehicle build is completed and ready for Quality Check / Shipping? Or is it before that, when the build of the vehicle starts.

Thank you. We requested for the allocation of a "newer" car and they provided the below VIN. Could you decode this please?
