However, when I am asking the dealership to provide the complete VIN - i.e. 17+2 = 19 characters - they are insisting that there are NO MORE CHARACTERS (after the 17 they have provided).

IS THAT POSSIBLE??!
Same here, booked an S-Cross with the following VIN allotted and I am unable to decode it. The dealer says this is the complete chassis number.

Hello throttlehead,

My issue was resolved last evening - when the RM finally sent me a PHOTO of the VIN-plate of my allotted car - the one that is punched to the inside wall of the bonnet.
And there, as expected, the 18 & 19th numbers were showing - as you can see in the photo attached.

Maybe you should also ask your Dealer to send you a photo of the VIN under the hood?!

So, my complete VIN is - "MA3ENGL1S00283273 * DN"

Which translates to ~
MONTH = April (D)
YEAR = 2022 (N)

Experts on the forum - please do correct me if I am decoding it wrong!

Hello SaNdY_AR

I'm no expert - but applying the formula listed by wildon, in the opening section of this thread, I am decoding your VIN as follows:-

MONTH = March (03)
YEAR = 2022 (22)

Hope this helps. However, my reading should be verified by someone more experienced.

Decode:

19th & 20th character represents the MONTH of Manufacture
21st & 22nd character represents the YEAR of Manufacture

An Example:

If your 19th & 20th VIN characters are 0 & 5, then it represents the Month - May
If your 21st & 22nd VIN characters are 0 & 8, then it represents the Year - 2008

Hello HappyRoadie

It seems like you have TWO NUMBERS SHORT, in the VIN you noted above (17 characters - while it should be 19). It could be a case similar to what I have described in my post above!

Applying the formula listed by wildon, in the opening section of this thread, I am decoding your VIN as follows:-

YEAR = 2022 (10th char = N)
MONTH = ?? (19th character missing)

Again, as I said earlier, I'm no expert, and my reading should be verified by someone more experienced.

Hope this helps.

If your 19th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month of Manufacture - July

Anyone? Would really appreciate. According to decoding guide given on first page VIN should have 19 characters but when I went to check the car it only had 17 characters. Hence I'm unable to find out the month of manufacture.

Kia VIN has 17 digits, the VIN needs to be punched in their system to get the details, the decoders available online cannot provide the month of manufacture

Still getting the permission error I told you about on PM. Do check again with your SA to make sure this VIN is correct.

Hi Everyone
Kindly help me decode this VIN MZBEU813MNN360819

I understand the 10th digit is for year so all I could figure out is manufacturing year is 2022.

Thanks in advance.
