Got my SX4 ZXi on 4/1/08 and Spdo clocked 250 KMs. Handles very nice. As Mixup of City and Highway got 12.X as milage. At a signal hit by a bad Auto guy and paid 140 to him. He parked so close to my car and by mistake I release the break and car went back (I was not knowing). Planned to put a sticker "Please Keep Distance" in back side. Any suggestions?

Default year of manu

Folks, don't be under any mis-information. I have got my car valued multiple times and guess what they don't even trust the RC book, they open the bonnet, get the actual mon, year of manufacture from the engine bay.

It's the year of manufacture that matters. Even if you get delivery of car in jan/feb 2008, there is a high possibility that you might get a 2007 manufactured car. Better wait till next fin.year, also gets any added budget benefits.

For some make like Hyundai, you need to decode the chasis no to get it but for Maruti I am pretty sure, it's a serial which you can't decode just like that, In my case I used a contact in Maruti Gurgaon to use their VTS (Vehicle Tracking System) to find out the Exact Date of Mfg and Date of Despatch from gurgaon factory by chasis / engine number.

Probably that's the best and most authenticated way to find it out

Thanks kshil, I hope I can get the details confirmed from the Gurgaon office. I have booked for Sx4 and the dealer has promised that the car Mfg would be 2008 (dispatched on 25th Jan from the factory), But still feel need to re check on them

Just go to Maruti truevalue website and check 2 cars of same model with same km run and same condition, one of dec06 and one of jan07. You would find the difference.
Re-opening a dormant thread, but if you go here Maruti True Value

They're asking for "Regn year" and Regn month" .

So has it changed or what ?

Default is it worth waiting another month ?

I am confused now !!!!!

i was to book a suv by Mitsubishi or GM (CBU's) for bro-in-law by jan 2009, thinking i would get a "2009" tag on the vehicle.

Now i have been told that lot of SUV's are wating to be delivered at factories all over the world. So my question is " whether i will be delivered a 2009 vehicle if i wait for another month or would i lose on the "discounts' and getting a 2008 vehicle even if i book on jan 2009. ??

or how long you guys think i need to wait for a 2009 model vehicle ?

Help

I am looking at buying a Swift Zxi. As we all know, ABS models take time, and the dealers say around 30 days for the delivery of the car. So technically I'll be getting a Jan 09 car, and it will be regd in Jan 09 only. But I guess the car manufacture month most prolly will be 08. Is there any way I can ask the dealer to get me a 09 model ? I cannot wait till Feb/Mar for the same :(

If you want a 2009 model, the dealer would have to give you a 2009 Made car and not a 2008.

Given the current scenario, you would find a lot of 2008 cars in Jan 2009, which the dealers wouldn't have been able to sell., so they would offer better discounts than the one they currently offer. But please note that the car has depriciated for 1 year ( though the mfg date of the car could be Nov 2008) and hence ask for unjustifiable discounts to start with.

So it is up to you if you would want a 2009 model, there would be no discounts. However, given the current scenario, the prices might come down considerably for 2009 cars as well.

You would have a choce then and based on economics, you could choose one that suits you.

In OHC, One has to just lift the bonnet and see near the radiator cap.
Here the month & date of manufacture is mentioned along with engine number , Chasis number.
