Default Re: Finding the VIN & manufacturing date/year on Indian cars

Tomorrow morning I am going for PDI for Honda City MT in Pune, from Deccan Honda

I insisted to the dealer that he need to provide me VIN for the vehicle and with some effort I managed to get that

The VIN is MAKGM252KAN200671

Can someone please decode that. I tried some and looks like its a Oct 2010 Manufactured, am I right?

Is it OK to accept a 2 month old Car?

As shown in the picture above Maruti- Suzuki Chassis Number has 21 Characters including the special characters.

The Chassis number is embossed on the metal body and same can be found in the engine bay compartment.

The Last 2 characters of the chassis number represents the MONTH and YEAR respectively. As you can see in the above picture its showing as L6 which means its a NOVEMBER 2006 manufactured Vehicle.

Most of the new Maruti-Suzuki Chassis number starts with MA3 unlike the one shown in the picture.

The other month codes are giving below

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

The YEAR codes

A=2010
9=2009
8=2008
7=2007
6=2006
5=2005

Sorry but this format you posted does not correspond to the Chassis number on my car.

Can you help me figure the manufacture date for MA5EGF41S00253941?

Thanks

From the code i'm not getting anything. But you can compare the last VIN with this. The production serial number you have given in the last VIN is 23707 (MAT613281ALG23707). What about the last 5 numbers in your present VIN? Is there is any significant difference?

The least you can guess is , imagine TATA produces a minimum of 1000 vehicles in a Month, then if its a December make it should start with 8xxx

Also Ask for the Form-22 in which production month and year will be mentioned.

Wildon, thanks for reply. Now the full VIN is,
MAT613281ALP36720 [that means approx. 13000 is the difference between now (36720) and earlier (23707)]

However, what this 'P' stands for? I am confused since as you mentioned earlier for december 'M' alphabet should be there and not 'P'.

I will also ask for form 22

I wish you and all A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have found this site for VW/Seat/Skoda(Basically the VW group) to decode the VIN.But this site only tells the model,month of production,plant and whether the VIN is valid or not.

VW/Audi/Seat/

A user already confirmed that he got a VIN which has N and confirmed from the form-22 that its November 2010 manufactured. So in your case its P makes me believes that its December 2010 manufactured vehicle only. Letter O not used to avoid confusion with 0 (zero).

Anyways please do double check with Form-22 also.

Can anyone please tell me the date of manufacturing of this Scorpio SLE model with chassis no- ma1ta2hanB2a10820 because today the dealer showed me this vehicle saying that it is 2011 model. If any one can confirm this then I will certainly buy it tomorrow. Some one please help other wise I might get cheated by a 2010 model
