Hello Fellow BHPians,

This is my first post in Team-BHP.

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

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.

From the Given numbers you can make out the following ;

4th Character A= January
5th and 6th Character combined = Manufactured in 2012
10th Character C = Model Year 2012.

@kaadye

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.
