Based on decode link, the manufacturing month and year is May 2018. 6th and 10th digit which comes to E and 9 translating to May 2018. Hope this helps.

hi Friends,

Can you please help me decode the VIN# of Hyundai Creta SX(O) diesel-
Number is: MALC381ULJM501301.

The thread 1st page says
10th char is year of manufacture, which in this case is 2018.
19th char is month of manufacture. In this case there is no 19th char.. so confused. I used a web portal (https://www.autodna.com/vin-check) to check the VIN. It says it is a Getz from Hyundai

Congratulations sir. Welcome to the group!

EDIT:

When you go for PDI, check the letter after the given VIN. It will be after the "star"

MALC381ULJM501301*letter that will signify the month code.

You're missing 2 more characters at the end, Hyundai VIN should be 19 Characters in length.

10th character indicates year (J = 2018), 19th indicates month A=Jan,etc, so ask them for the additional 2 chars so that you can find out month from 19th character.

Please see the first page on this thread that articulates how to decode the VIN of each manufacturer.

Thank you, Sir

I booked the car on 21st Nov. The car is expected to arrive in 5 days to the dealer.

I asked the dealer for the last code. He said he will check and get back.
May I know how you found the production date?

The correct VIN number is MAJAXXMRKAJP66733. This is a vehicle manufactured in August 2018 (JP). Is it ok to take delivery in Dec 2018 or should he insist on a newer vehicle? Please advice.

The last char is *L, which as per this thread is Nov.

So as a4anurag told it is a Nov 2018 manufactured Creta.

Thanks!

18th character for month - L = November
19th character for year - J = 2018

Refer this post it's the newer/alternate Maruti VIN format - here (ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN))
