The last two characters are missing in your VIN. It ends with a number and a character, like *7J. This decides the manufacturing date. You can find this number near the front passenger seat.

Can somebody help with month-year of VIN WBAHU170XK5L42299. I checked using bimmer.work and it shows as Nov-2018 while dealer is claiming it to be Feb-2019. He showed me VAHAN record.

This is for BMW X1. Not sure which is one is true.

Guys,

I got the VIN number for my Skoda Rapid today from my SA. Using an app suggested in this thread, it says May 2019 manufactured. Can someone pls confirm.

Also,. I tried registering this VIN via MySkoda App but it throws an error saying already registered with another ID. Should I be worried ?

Guys, I need help with decoding my VIN ( Got the 17 digit one from the dealer and app accepts the 19 digit one). This dealer has not been quite transparent and hence need to be sure that I am not being taken for a ride.

Vin # - MALBM51RLKM737226

Can you please let me know how you found out exact production date.
Also, how would a vehicle manufactured on 13th September 2019 would be available to its buyer on 16th September(just 3 days), doesn't it take longer time for deliveries etc?

Please let us know how you decode all this. Or it could be a rough estimate looking at sequence number of car (12,892)

From worldwide format of KIA-VIN decoding, only 2019 is clear(10th digit K), even month is not clear.
