VIN No for Volkswagen Vento is: MEXE16608GT087546

From what i understand - this indicates a May 2016 manufactured vehicle: E indicating May and 16 indicating 2016.
Is it correct?

I contacted the showroom and they said nothing to worry as the sales receipt will have the 2016 manufactured date. Kindly advise and let me know whether I should be concerned or worried. Thankyou
If i am in your place, i would never accept the vehicle.
However, if you are ok with the vehicle, why don't you negotiate and ask the dealer to give you a substantial discount for accepting a 2015 manufactured vehicle !

Guys, I complained to Navnit Motors saying that there is lack of transparency in the system since they tried to sell me a November, 2015 manufactured car last week. I wrote official emails to the sales executive and manager Mr. Kamath at Navnit, Bangalore saying that i will not accept a 7 months old car and that I need a car that is manufactured atleast in the last 3 months. However, there is total silence from the car company and keep telling me that the issue has gone to the higher authorities. Its been a week now and there is no final conclusion/solution. My first EMI will hit next week and I still dont have confirmation of my new 320D. Kindly advise what to do next.

Hello, can someone decode the following VIN for Audi

Thanks Grand Drive.

Another VIN from Renault - MEEHSRCFFG5000539. Please decode.

As per the logic you shared it seems this is May 2016 model.
