Smile Decode BEAT an UVA VIN!

Dear Wildon,

How to decode BEAT an UVA VIN?

Thanks in advance.

I also find Vehicle Identification Number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia a good reference.

Regards

Vinu

9th digit represents Month and 10th digit represents Year

A to M excluding i represents January to December.

A in 10th digit represents 2010 if 9 =2009

Hey wildon! can you help me decode this VIN for the Chevy Spark?

MA6MF481DAH048197

Going by the logic given above, 9th digit (D=April) and 10th digit (A=2010). Correct?

Any other details to be had? Thanks in advance.
