Thank you !! do you think i can go in for this vehicle ? the dealer is offering me considerate discounts.

I am intending to have a look at the vehicle before deciding further and have made it very clear to the dealer also.

Hi Wildon,

I found a site which gives ready VIN Details, but not all details are available like the exact engine number or the particular model

The site that I just came across is :-

https://vindecoder.eu

For example for the VIN [MA3ETDE1S00394957], the details I got is as follows :-

Manufacturer:
Maruti Suzuki India Limited
Manufacturer Address:
Plot No. 1 Nelson Mandela Road
Vasant Kunj
New Delhi DL 110070
Product Type: Passenger Cars
Make: Maruti Suzuki
Check Digit: S
Model Year: 10th character in VIN code is not recognized (U, Z and 0).
Plant Country: India
Sequential Number: 394957

For the VIN [MALBM51RLGM311002]

Manufacturer:
Hyundai Motors India Ltd
Manufacturer Address:
Plot No. H-1Sipcot Industrial Park
Irrugattukottai Sriperumbudur
Taluk Kancheepuram
Product Type: Passenger Cars - Including Mpv & Rv
Make: Hyundai
Check Digit: L
Model Year: 2016
Plant Country: India
Sequential Number: 311002

For the VIN [WVWB16166GA551145]

Manufacturer:
Volkswagen AG
Manufacturer Address:
Berliner Ring 2
Wolfsburg/Hannover
Make: Volkswagen
Model: Beetle
Check Digit: 6
Model Year: 2016
Plant Country: Germany
Sequential Number: 551145

Apparently, the site is able to produce more accurate details for some and not for others. Is there any particular site one can refer to get details about cars available in India (the new ones that are being sold). I understand that details like the Month and Year are identifiable by the VIN. But how to get the corresponding Engine / Chassis number associated with that particular VIN along with the respective Make, Model and Color of the particular vehicle.

I am waiting for the VIN details from the dealer (as I have booked the Renault Kwid, 1.0L manual), but they have shared the Engine and Chassis number. Very surprising as to what is stopping them from sharing the VIN.

Nevertheless, is it possible, to get the VIN details from the Engine and Chassis number?

Chassis number : MEEBBAOOXH2469346
Engine number : E043179

I am interested for the Manufacturing Month (preferably March 2017) along with the other engine details like make and model.

***
Not too sure if chassis and VIN are same, but apparently if so, then it seems to be a February 2017 made model. Is that correct? Is it good to take this car at March?

This is the VIN number. It is Feb 2017 manufactured vehicle. I don't see any problem in taking a Feb 2017 vehicle in March unless there is any problem found during your PDI

I was going through the Kerala RTO site and found a document which has the details of how to decode VIN to get the manufacturing Year and Month. I hope this helps as single point of access for all the vehicles manufactured after 2010
