Thank you very much!

Now the dealer tells me it's an end of March manufacturing. Same thing had happened last time as well that the VIN decode said some 3-4 months earlier than what the dealer claimed. But dealer explained that VIN decode shows the date on which the kit gets manufactured in Germany and that will always be a few months earlier to local assembly.

Is this correct? Or is the dealer lying to me and giving me a 2016 car?

Finally after a lot of argument and waiting for 3 days I have got the VIN number for my Ford Aspire Deisel Titanium Ruby Red.

Can someone please decode VIN number MAJ ZXXMT K Z H P08825 and confirm if it's a Titanium model (with alloys). I do not trust the dealer anymore.

Thank You in advance.

It is April 2017.

If you have android phone, you may use the app from Kerala MVD to check the VIN numbers or use PDF to check the same

Thank You so much !
I am relieved now. The dealer has changed the color of the car 4 times already in 10 days, didn't want to end up getting a different variant as well.

Hi Guys,

Can someone help me out with finding the VIN for Alto K10? I mean where is the location of the VIN in the car? I have read about the VIN being stamped somewhere in the car - where can I find the VIN number for Alto K10?

Also if I have the car registration number (for example: MH 02 BT XXX), is there an online portal where I can get the VIN details?

Thanks in advance!
