I recently bought a Jeep Compass Longitude VIN: MCAAJPBH3JFA46433. Need help decoding please.. This is all i found below the windshield, supposed to be 2019 manufacture but websites say 10th digit should be K for 2019 and i have J which is supposed to be 2018. Have i been duped? I was able to dig up this information online https://www.jeep.com/webselfservice/...AJPBH3JFA46433

Hi

Please check this post in Jeep compass Official Review thread
https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offic...ml#post4375584 (Jeep Compass : Official Review)

It seems to mention a 20 digit VIN for Jeep Compass which is the standard for all FIAT cars starting with MCA where the 19th and 20th digits seem to give away the month and year. Yours is a 17 digit VIN and i guess what's mentioned in your URL as 2018 compass refers to the model year and not the year when your car was manufactured. I might be wrong. Check your RC book or some other document for a 20 digit VIN. Just thought of sharing.

Regards
Dev

Hi dev
Thanks
I also got this but dealer was claiming that it's September manufactured and you are checking on wrong site
They think we are just fools and would just believe in whatever they say
