I just verified this, as per the available details the color code mentioned for this vehicle is GT (Gold Topaz). May be there is a mistake somewhere.

Check underneath the Hood/bonnet there will be a two digit number like M9 or something apart from the 17 digit above mentioned VIN number (MA3FKEB2S00182731) and that represents the month/year

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, this is a Maruti Ritz Zxi. Can any other detals be found based on these two numbers?

Hi Wildon, GP
VIN ending with JPZ is Oct. 2009 model right?

Just need your confirmation.

Thanks.

Default Hello Folks

need some urgent assistance on decoding the VIN No. for my recently booked Ford Fiesta. I have booked in the month of Jan 2010 (forgoing the hefty discount in the month of Dec 09) hence do not want to be palmed off with an older vehicle.

MAJBXXMRTBAL70312

I have to figure it out before the vehicle goes for registartion the day after.

Here is nice piece of info given by SPIKE ARRESTOR about Mahindra Vehicle.

Commonly most manufacturer uses A for representing 2010. Please do check your VIN once you get it.

first section containing 3 digits which give details of Manufacturer code.

third section containing 8 digits which give details of particular vehicle identification. Now the details of all the 17 digits
Digit 1- Continent code ( M means Asia)
Digit 2- Country code (A means India)
Digit 3- Manufacturers code for MnM (1 means Mahindra)
Digit 4,5-Vehicle code for RHD,LHD
Digit 6- 4WD or 2WD (4 means 4WD and 2 means 2WD)
Digit 7,8- Engine code (Different codes for MDI and NEF)
Digit9- Transmission code (N for NGT 530R and L for NGT530)
Digit 10- Year code (2 for 2001, 3 for 2002 and so on)
Digit 11- Plant location (1 for Kandivali, 2 for Nasik, 3 for Zaheerabad)
Digit 12- Month code (A for January, B for Feb and so on)
Digit 13-17- Vehicle Serial No.

OT-The height of chassis no. punching usually varies between 6-7mm

Hope this clarifies

Spike
