Thanks @wildon.

Wow...so they are selling August 2009 models!
hmmm...by the way, how do you ascertain the month of manufacture?
I read a few posts before on this thread that 10'th digit is year of manufacture...

Thanks,

The 6th digit of the SKODA VIN represents the Month of manufacturing and the 10th digit represents the Year of manufacturing. So in your case,
6th digit is H= August ( ' i 'and ' o ' not used)and 10th digit 9=2009

Yes Vagauto is a very good site but you have to pay for it to get a detailed report of your VIN. There are 2 options , one is for single report for which you need to pay $5 and other is monthly Subscription which cost $55.90.

Thanks for it Wildon. Got the delivery of the vehicle on 30-Jan. Yesterday I got to compare it with one of my friend's activa RC book/VIN and indeed its the 9th digit for the month and the 10th digit for year.
