All

My SIL, has booked a Punto 90HP, Tuscan Wine
About to take delivery
The VIN shared is as

MCA 118 54D 0 7052832 B JZ

MCA 118 54D 0 7052832 B JZ
FIAL PUNTO 90HP Engine# Feb 2014

I am interpreting this as shown above.
All earlier threads show the HP as 34D for the 90 HP Punto, this is showing 54D, Hence the query,

Please clarify the above, thanking you.

Wildon, I'm confused by this one from VW - WVWL14600ET049642.

The L seems to suggest it's a November 2013 manufactured car (Vento TSI), while model year is 2014. Could this have something to do with car/part import dates and final factory-leaving dates? I know for a fact that it only arrived at the dealership last week, so it isn't an old car in that sense.

My fault, please ignore this. That is a wrong VIN. The new one makes sense, shows it is Feb. 2014 car.

An Example:

If your 10th VIN character is A, then it represents the Model Year - 2010
If your 19th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month of Manufacture - July
I find that currently VIN for Hyundai starts with MALA......

My i10 Grand has the following VIN MALA8151DLEM076187*B hence it is 20 digit where the 11th number is year and 20th number is month


Hence may be a good idea to review the VIN's again and update this thread.

Cheers
