The VIN is stamped on the front passenger's side. Open the door and it'll be visible. Here's a picture from my city:

For Mercedes-Benz, the following website apparently works:

https://www.mbdecoder.com/

You get the manufacturing date as well as a detailed equipment list of the car.

(At least, it worked for our car)

Guys I need your help
I used the same site mentioned in post above and got the details as manufacturing is done in may 2018 where as navnit is saying it's August 2018
When my friend who has booked car showed him screenshot they are giving a dumb reason that there are wrong records in third party website , which I totally understand is a dumb excuse
Any other way it can be checked ?

Does anyone know how to decode the JTSV VIN numbers?

Just received my VIN today and it doesn't follow TATA's code of 17 characters. The JTSV VIN number has 18 characters.

Have you tried to omit the last digit and decode the VIN. Generally it is 17 digits. Rarely, an 18th digit may be used for factory purposes.

Hi guys,

I recently booked a Ford Aspire and got my VIN No MAJZXXMTKZKK67595. As per the process to decode the VIN, the 11th(Month) & the 12th(Year) shows Feb 2019.

But when I log on to http://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do
and enter the no, the result doesn't show any detailed report about the car. Attaching here is the snapshot of the same. Can anyone help me out on the same.

That decodes to manufacturing month => 2018 July

Yes the site isn't much help - except telling you the engine and color details.

Can confirm KK => Feb 2019 manufacturing. I've got an EcoSport in the same month.

You need to log in for the full information.

The 11th Letter denotes year of production and the 12th letter the month.

Kindly share your VIN No

VIN : MALAF51CYKM048820
Engine No.: G4HGKM989478
Model ID : SANTRO (AH2)
Model Year : 2019
Engine : G 1.1 MPI

Production Date: 09-02-2019

Delivery Date : 31-03-2019

It says the car has been delivered on 31st March. Surprising!! Either this car has been allocated to you due to someone cancelling the delivery at the last moment or was billed/invoiced for year end targets. Please check the car thoroughly before signing the dotted line.
