That's April 2019. Quite an old piece I'd say.

We are trying to challenge the dealer on this. They might be trying to push an old piece.

However, what could be disadvantage of accepting old piece?

What about this?
MA1YU2WUVK6K14533

This seems to be newer?

There's a dedicated thread on that topic - https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/buyin...ring-date.html (ARTICLE: Buying a New car with an Older manufacturing date)

6 months time is not too much to be worried about. But if buying a 6 month old manufactured car, you must ask for some extra discount/accessories based on that fact alone.

12th digit stands for month. K means October. Go for this one if you're not getting any additional discount.

Hi,

Can somebody help me decode this VIN: MALAF51CLKM084433.

The article (quoted below) mentions 19 characters but the VIN mentioned on the car is only 17 characters.

Quote:

Manufacturer: Hyundai

VIN / Chassis Number Characters: 19 (beginning with MAL...)

Decode:

10th character represents the Model YEAR
19th character represents the MONTH of Manufacture
How do I find out the month of manufacture?
A M is online now

I think this is a Maruti car. If yes, open the hood and look for 19 digit VIN because 10th and 11th digits of the VIN which you've given are zero.

Last 2 digits of the 19 digit VIN will represent mfg month and year respectively.

I did not get the car yet we just booked, and wanted to confirm before we make a full payment. We are getting a BS4 at a discount of 40000 and hence wanted to make sure the car is not too old.

The Dzire VIN you had shared does indeed seem to be a BS 4 Car since it was manufactured in May 2019.

*However, @self_driven hasn't responded to your post but to @mjkaushal who had shared another VIN
