Hi Wildon

The dealer claims that this RITZ is Jan 2012 made.

It depends, if there is no takers then they have to clear out the already produced cars first then only they will start new production for the same.

Hi Wildon,

I've booked a Laura vRS and is expecting its delivery this weekend. The dealer had initially promised me delivery of a 2012 make, I knew it was highly unlikely and hence I insisted on providing the VIN before itself.

The following is the VIN they have provided me,

TMBEKH1X1BA155214. Can you provide me the details for it?

As per decode your VIN thread, i figure it out to be August 2011. Is it correct?

Also is it OK to buy a 6 month old vehicle? or is this date issue a problem of the via CKD route?

Thanks in advance.
