Hi Anurag

Can you decode the below VIN of a Hyundai Verna 2018 model?

MALC841DLJM064484.

It's only 17 digits and not 19 as mentioned in the opening page for Hyundai.

Thanks, but where did you get April and November from? Do they track delivery also? How do they do that?

The http://www.etis.ford.com site gives me
EcoSport 2013-, 1.5L SOHC DI TC I4 Diesel DV5, Moondust Silver (Metallic) VIN Number: MAJAXXMRKAKK39377


Can someone confirm my deductions for Ford Ecosport with VIN

KK => Feb 2019. Ecosport diesel MT - Moondust silver. So far everything matches what was promised by the dealer.



Any other information that can be gleaned from the VIN?

Hi, I have booked a Creta with Shreenath Hyundai Chembur on March 2019. Now I have the VIN number, and I understand that this vehicle was manufactured on 4-Jan-19 and delivered on 21-Jan-19.
The dealer has given an explanation that the vehicle was booked by a customer in Jan and he has not taken the delivery yet. Hence the same has been reassigned to me. She is confirming that the vehicle has been lying untouched in the stockyard for the past 2 months and that I am free to check the car anytime I please.
My knowledge in car is limited and I am sure that knowledge of dealer in these car is unlimited- so effectiveness of my verification is doubtful. Is it advisable to take this possession of this car or should I ask for a new one?

You can thoroughly inspect the car, do a Pre Delivery Inspection and if no problem is found, I don't see any reason not to take the possession.

What is the location of the VIN for Honda City 2017 (the current ) version? Can anyone please guide as to how and where to check for the VIN physically, on the car itself, when doing the PDI?
