Ford's 17-character VIN uses the following two positions:
  • 11th character: year of manufacture
  • 12th character: month of manufacture

The year and month can be decoded using the following table, and procedure: [list=1][*]Using the 11th character, decode the year using the table on the top. For example, a code of G indicates a 2016-manufacture, H is 2017. Note that the letters O (oh), Q, I (eye), U and Z are not used, to avoid confusion with the numbers zero, one and two, and the letter V. [*]Then, using the year and the 12th character, decode the month in the second table. Note that the 12th character (month) is always an alphabet, never a number. [*]To decode the month, first identify the column that contains the year, and then look for the 12th character in that column to identify the month. [*]For example, if the 11th and 12th characters are HU, then H decodes as the year 2017 in the first table. In the second table, the year 2017 is in the second column, and the 12th character U indicates the month of manufacture is February. /LIST][center]Attachment 1604678
Build date and manufacturing date are two different things? 11th & 12th character of the VIN are H & J. According to the table its January 2017. But when entered the same VIN number of Ford Etis website, there is only one information which says the build date as Nov 2016.

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.
