Re: ARTICLE: Find your car's date of manufacture (VIN)
 
Hello Fellow BHPians,

This is my first post in Team-BHP.clap:

I have booked a Maruti Swift Dzire Vxi (Glistening Grey) which will be delivered to me on 29th February 2012 (Leap Year Day) after registration.

I noted down the Chassis No. which reads MA3EJKDIS00110556. Can someone decode it for me please.

Zoooom,
Arun:D

Wildon and I managed to get a conclusion on the Chevy VINs based on some research I did by speaking to a couple of Chevy dealers. It's NOT the 10th letter that denotes the year of manufacture, it's the NINTH. 10th denotes the model year.

So all Chevrolet owners who've booked post February 2011, this is for you:

Typical Chevrolet VIN (mine): MA6JFDADCBH-xxxxxx
  • Chars 1-3: Manufacturer Code (MA6)
  • Char 7: Month of Manufacturing (in my case A = January)
  • Char 9: Year of Manufacturing (in my case C = 2012)
  • Char 10: Model Year (in my case B = 2011)
  • Char 11: Manufacturing Plant Location (H = Halol)

We will do the necessary changes to the opening post of this thread after confirming this.

Chevrolet owners,

Confirmation that it is indeed the 7th letter for month and 9th letter for year.

Cheers,

Ghostrider.

Thanks for the link. The only difference with Indian VIN/Chassis is the 12 Character. Here it represents Month of Production. for. e.g A=January.
