Thanks guys. This helped a lot. The dealer was speaking the truth. Look out for the ownership thread soon.

My neighbour has booked a Honda Jazz.
Here is the VIN:
MAKGG171ABN100927

Could you please confim the manufacturing date and other details please.
The dealer is claiming this to be a Jan 11 made car and hence is not offering the discount applicable to 2010 cars.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks @wildon.
Thanks a lot.

BTW, from your posts, ABN means Jan 2011 Noida.
So, just curious - any way to get the exact production date from Honda VIN like you have been doing for the Skoda VINs?

Thanks,
Anand

So here's my question -

How do I know the code for a Grande Punto that's manufactured in 2011 ?

Earlier in the post someone mentioned NZ as 2010..so what's the code for 2011 ?

Thanks in advance -

2011 cars would end with MZ. Jan ones would end with AMZ.
