Can someone help me decode this for the vento (enroute for delivery): MEXH15608GT026687

MEX = VW India
H15 = Aug 2015
608 = vento??
GT ==> THis is what confused me - I have only see FT in the brief checking that I have done. But GT means 2016 model whatever that means!!
026687 = serial #

Is this accurate decoding - any other comments?
Also is it that the GT most likely would be FT -- and might be a typo by the dealer?

Congrats ! It's August 2015 model. The fourth character 'H' represents the August month. The fifth and sixth character represents the production year and in your case, it's 15 which stands for 2015.

Please confirm the VIN again as the tenth character 'G' represents 2016.

I was also worried about the same point. But just now I got a response from the dealer - does it make any sense ?

Quote:
The particular chassis no mentioned is correct and is an 2015 manufactured Vento of Model year 2016.

The current vento which are going to be delivered will be model year 2016 but manufactured in 2015.
Has anybody else got a Vento delivered recently with the 10th character as 'G' ?

I clarified this with the dealer -- apparently some VW handling. This is a change which is see now, i.e., Sep'15 onwards -- all cars manufactured (after some cutoff date?) will be indicated as the 2016 model and this will continue until ~Jul 2016. I dont know understand what sense this makes -- but now the VIN is confirmed and I can maybe post a photo whenever I get my eyes on the car (~2 weeks+).

Can anyone please help decode this VIN number for Elite i20 - MALBM51BLFM147335

The initial thread mentions chassis number characters of Hyundai to be 19 however I have been provided a 17 character one so not sure what to make out of it. Am I missing something?

Congrats ! The VIN number provided is incomplete and Hyundai VIN will have 19 characters. The tenth character 'F' denotes that it's a 2015 model. The nineteenth character represents the manufacturing month and the VIN is stamped below the driver's seat.

Hi Wildon.

A Volkswagen Vento with : 'MEXJ15600G7029830'

Any chance of getting this decoded ? Got it from the sales guy. Car, seemingly, has been manufactured and is ready to ship.

Thanks in advance !
