Being a fairly fast selling car, can't really understand why this particular car is sitting with the dealership from April/May. Was it invoiced to someone but delivery not taken or is a Demo car, can't really understand.

I'll say wait for another car and leave this. Not worth it IMHO. Any other dealership in your city?

Using the FordEtis site is very simple: [list=1][*]Visit the URL https://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do
This site is not working. IS there any alternate similar site for Ford VIN's in India?

All - Need a quick piece of advice here. I have booked a Hexa last week and the delivery date is the 1st week of January. The dealer shared the VIN number and it indicates it is manufactured in Sept. Upon questioning, he mentioned he does not have control over what TATA sends. Is it ok to take a car that is 3 months old or should i insist i need the current month. He mentioned the December mfg models are not sold this year. Please let me know what i need to be watchful about here.

@a4anurag, from which website did you decode the VIN? I am trying to decode the VIN for a Hyundai Creta booked by my friend. He has been given a 17 digit VIN and the car is yet to reach the dealership from factory. Thanks.

You can decode the Hyundai VIN from here: http://service.hyundai-motor.com/euro5/login.tiles

You would have to register an account.

Sorry for the late reply, somehow didn't get the notification for the quoted post.

To answer the question, I use the same link as given by Vikalp. I've registered myself there hence can decode the VIN.

Thank you sir! Month and year of manufacture is what I'm looking for as the SA himself is clueless about the month.
