Can someone help decode it and also help with the manufacturing month/year?

Thanks in advance


Hello Sir,

Decoding - 12th character is month of manufacture, which is B in your VIN, which indicates the month of February.

10th character is your year if manufacture, which is J in your case, which indicates the year 2018.


Month and year of manufacture : February 2018. Fresh car

Sorry. Couldn't decode this one. It seems there isn't a decoder for the compass. Luckily, the model year says 2018 when I checked it through this site. No idea on the month though.

February 2018 is the manufacturing month of your Ignis.

11th Character - Month of manufacturer - B in your case, which indicates February.

10th Character is year of manufacture - J in your case, which is 2018.

I too need to decode a VIN that my friend sent me. The 10th and 11th character are both 0, confused as to which month or year
VIN: ma3eua61300c15096

This car is an Alto 800, still not invoiced but if it's a 2018 model then he can go ahead.

I'm sorry to bother you but how did you deduce it's a ciaz and it's 2018 model from the VIN? Which character defines these?

Am so sorry if I've confused your reply with the VIN you had posted.

What I learnt now is that for some Maruti models, there is an extra two characters after the 17 VIN to decode the month and year of manufacture date.

1) Ciaz has this numbering system, where the 9th, 10th & 11th characters are S00. Ignis and Baleno have regular numbering system

2) Where can we find this x+2 numbering ? Does it follow the same coding as for other cars ?
