I still can't figure out how to decode VIN - sorry :( Can someone help for Kia Seltos? Dealer has been playing games with delivery and I am not able to trust them.

Thank you very much anurag.
I was told this vehicle just arrived in Bangalore and was manufactured in October. Do I need to be worried or can I go ahead and conduct a PDI?

Sorry for the late reply. You can go ahead and perform the PDI. Just cross verify if the VIN given to you is the same on the car or not apart from the points in the Team-BHP PDI checklist.

What's a delivery date?
Delivered to dealer?

Car was delivered a few hours ago to the customer and had some paint scratches the dealer vowed to fix at first service.
Starting to feel suspicious of why the dealer said September manufactured. Customer believed him because Titan Grey is a new release for the Santro.

Delivery date - is to the customer, not to the dealer from factory.

That's surprising.

Hope the VIN given is correct? Was it cross verified?

I'm out of town so have yet to verify the VIN from places other than this sticker on the vehicle.

I'll ask the owner to check if its the same number later today. The car was handed over in a hurry after customer spotted scratches front and rear and refused to take ownership of.
The dealer had already registered the vehicle in his name so there wasn't much he could do.

Interestingly I've noticed Bangalore's dealers(Trident Hyundai and Nexa) both refuse to entertain customers requests to get PDI done before registration citing stockyard distance being too far from the city.

Edit: Looked it up on Vahan. The dealer got the insurance done on 16th Oct, Fitness upto 18th Oct 2034, Registration done on 19th October and car was delivered on 25th Oct as customer had requested for the car to be made available on Friday with the license plates attached. Guess that solves the riddle.
