Hi Wildon,
Is it possible to get me a report on these Fiesta VIN's?

MAJBXXMRTBCA57539 - It seems March 2012 Manufactured.
MAJBXXMRTBCA57557 - It seems March 2012 Manufactured. Any other interesting data??

Planning to get one soon. FYI all: Fiesta Classic CLXI - 8.34 Lacs on road (Madurai, TN) with 3rd year warranty. Discount 5k from Ford.

Doing a great job there mate. Not many come front in taking time to do such. Much appreciated!

Hi Wildon,

Can you please crack this VIN for Honda Brio:
DD174CCN001539

I tried to compare the VIN with the instructions on the first page of this thread but i am messing up somewhere.

Thanks a lot in anticipation.

P.S.- This is urgent so if anyone else could also assist, it will be great. Thanks.

What about Chevrolet cars manufactured on 2009. the 10th digit is 9. So that could mean its 2009. How do I find the month?
