Lot of queries are coming for Kia Seltos. And since it's a new manufacturer, we don't have the details of the manufacturers VIN decoding instructions. I observed that you've been helping many buyers. Can you please update the instructions.

Thanks.

Add this to your list:
MZBEN813LKN020933

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.
