Hi Wildon,

Could you decode the following VIN # MAKDD174LBN00265, this is for a Honda Brio. I am quite keen to know the exact manufacturing date. Would it be possible to get the detailed pdf report for the same. Thanks in advance.

However, how do I make sure that I'm not being sold a test-drive car?
E.g. If I am to go for a PDI at the yard TODAY, what should I expect the month of manufacture of the car to be?
Check the T-Bhp PDI list. Max it should be 3 months old.

Thanks Wildon.
When production month is September (J), how come production date is of October month.

Is it possible to get more information from VIN no?

Hi Wildon,

Please help with decoding the Ford Figo 1.4 EXI Trim Vin.

MAJ1XXMRJ1BM19526.

If I enter this Vin number in the wesite you gave in earlier posts, it says wrong VIN number.

But going by the logic you have given in the first page, i understand it as Nov 2011 manufactured vehicle.

Mods. Please bear with me, i tried my best to edit my post, but i couldn't, so a quoted post.

Dear Wildon,

From your inputs, i inferred it's a October 2011 model (BEAT DIESEL), shall I go ahead with the registration, as it's already 2 months, (sandrift grey colour) when i enquired with the dealer, he said normally they get models with one month delay i.e October manufactured model in November etc., He sais since its a new model no issues at all and if i need a new model, i need to pay extra money, as the prices are increased.

KMS in ODO - 12 KMS.

PLEASE ADVICE. Vehicle is ok except rusting in wheel nuts and he said its normal during rainy season as the vehicle was in yard.

Hi Wildon/All, I am contemplating to bring home Fiat Grande Punto 1.2 Petrol Active (BN White) and the VIN# MCA11815DXXXXXXXXDMZ which from what I gathered from our forum that car is of April 2011 make..... I had told the Salesperson that this is not acceptable and I would expect a vehicle manufactured not more than 2 months earlier max...... I am availing the year end offers [10K Cash+3500 RSA+Free Insurance], I have though given the Booking Amount of 10K to Concorde Dairy Circle, BLR.

Now the Salesperson's team-lead has approached me telling that he only has this car and even in FIAT's inventory there are no cars for the year 2011. He said he can offer me additional discounts... I had earlier asked for accessories like body colored door handles/mirrors, door sil+Punto Pillows, Standard Accesories.... Now I have additionally asked for Autocop Remote Locking sys + 50% on Music System with 4 speakers (~13K)

Please guide so as to what should be done next. Should I go ahead with booking , is it advisable to buy a April 2011 make car in Dec 2011? Were there any significant under the hood changes beyond Apr"2011 till now?

If you found the vehicle is ok after PDI then proceed. 2month is OK.
