Great. Thanks. I sure am relieved to know that A does not mean January. I bought the car end October 2009.

There is a small flap in the floor carpet just in front of the driver's seat. Lift the flap up and you can see the VIN/Chassis # in a really huge font. This is the VIN that is used in the RTO inspection.

This is just a print-out of the VIN that is kept on the windshield for easy identification in the factory, yard, showroom etc. It's a standard Ford practice. It's thrown away before delivery.

I have booked an i20 and delivery arnd Jan-Feb and have stated the dealer that I need a 2010 manufactured Car or else I will reject it during PDI.But now after seeing the Hyundai codes,I guess its difficult to crack for a normal person

So is there any way other than the VIN that I can be sure that its indeed a 2010 car?

Look for the the 10th Digit of the i20 VIN. The above picture shows 10th digit as 8.

8= 2008
9= 2009
A= 2010

As a normal procedure it should be July 2009. Can you tell me in which month you have booked and got the delivery.

Well thats the interesting. My Dad booked the car in Nov beginning in Jaipur, the dealer said his inventory is destroyed by the IOC Depot Fire. He said he has asked for a fresh lot from Factory. Now when my Dad went for delivery three days ago he told the VIN number and date of Manufacture. When my dad asked him why the Car is so old, he showed the Bill of Lading that Factory send with this car and it was for last Friday from Chevrolet. I am wondering Chevrolet is stocking so old cars in there inventory. The car had 23KM on ODO and looked pretty fresh. Do you suspect there is some foul play?

What was the date/month of manufacture as stated the by the dealer. If its July 2009 there is something wrong as Spark is a fast moving model.

The other point is GM's other brand Ford uses a different pattern for Month, according the Ford vehicles manufactured in 2009 G = August
