Thank you @akash_v12. Is it possible to get more detailed info (date of manufacture, color, variant) for Honda cars similar to what is derived for Hyundai / Kia cars ?

No. That won't be possible since no other manufacturer except HML, KML, BMW & FCA have that system available for free.

Hi, Akash, thanks for checking this out. But the dealer tells me it's a December, 2021 vehicle.

He supported his claim with this printout he shared. It's the second last item on this list.

I have done the PDI but need to make the payment by tomorrow. If it's actually an October manufactured vehicle as per the data you checked and this is being offered as a December one, i am concerned. Especially when he has shared this list "confirming" that.

What should I do here? Should I ask for the Form 22 to prove his claim? Could you recheck at your end too please? The VIN again is MEXKPLPA2MG026043.

Many thanks!!!

I referred to the reference list again. This looks like a December vehicle.
The VIN is MEXKPLPA2MG026043
The 6th character is the month in Skoda's case. So, L here is the 12th month. Thanks, anyway.

Yes, this indeed seems like a December 2021 car. Will request the mods to make the changes

This vehicle is manufactured in October 2021. I would not be able to help you out with any other details, my apologies.
