I got this over phone so I hope I got it right.
6th character is month, here it is 'A' so it is January, 10th character is year and here it is 'E' which is 2014.

Thanks B747. But I was hoping I'll get a little more info. The websites provide only basic information. Is there any way I can find out the specific model and colour? I just want to make sure the dealer is not bluffing. With Skoda you just can't be too careful.

Hi Wildon,

Can you help me with the detailed info of the Ford Fiesta with this vin: MAJBXXMRTB6MB2822

This is what I could get:
Ford Fiesta
Manufactured: July 2006

Thanks a lot!

carbum.

PS: It would be great if you could also tell us how you actually get the detailed info. Websites like http://www.myvehicledetails.com/ don't have much info.

0 and O are NOT used from what I understand to avoid confusion. Seems I'll have to check back. Could be D as you mentioned.

Wildon my friend, looks like Hyundai has reverted back to it's 17-character VIN numbers, from the 19-character VINs in recent times.

Booked an EON for my wife. Can you get more details from this?

MALA251ALEM274721

10th character is E, so it's a 2014 make. Color is Sleek Silver.

I would appreciate any/all other details you can bring up. The car is currently in transit from it's Chennai plant to my city, and delivery date quoted is 11/03/2014.
