Even I bought a Aug manufactured vehicle in Oct, nothing to worry about so long as the vehicle is OK.

Yeah yeah... No worries on that front. Just sad that I missed a reason to fight with the dealer.

^^^ My reply is already mentioned by you.

If you are visiting the stock yard Look for a Two digit or Three digit numbered stickers pasted on the Glasses(front/side/rear) on the car. It will be starting with an Alphabet in which

A= JAN
B= FEB
C= MAR
D= APR
E= MAY
F= JUNE
G= JULY
H= AUG
J= SEP
K= OCT
L= NOV
M= DEC

MA3 = Maruti Suzuki
FKEB2 = Variant used for Dzire Model
