Can someone please help me with the below VIN? The dealer is giving some extra discount out of the blue and I have a feeling its a 2011 manufactured car. Also somehow I have feeling that the code is also wrong.

MA3EAA61S02060947

The VIN you have provided is of 1.2 MT and you have said that you booked a 1.4 AT ? which is true?

We have booked 1.4 AT and was provided the VIN that I asked for your help. Today only, I got a call from delete that the car is delayed and it will be delivered only after 1 week. But now that you have mentioned that the VIN belongs to 1.2 L MT, may be dealer has screwed up something. I will have to talk to dealer now to make sure that made correct booking as my booking slip says 1.4 AT Sportz Maharaja Red.

Meanwhile, I also got a call from Honda dealer regarding Jazz availability that we booked earlier and cancelled for i20 AT.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you very much Wildon! We are now confused between this and Jaxx but most probably will go with i20 due to AT.

Hi Wildon! really appreciate the great job you are doing!

Am planning for a ford figo delivery next week. My sales consultant says that I will be getting a March/April Vehicle.

If it is a March vehicle am keen on getting the Production date. Is it possible to decode the date of production from a FIGO's VIN?

Hi Wildon

Can you please help me with any information about this Ford VIN. All I know is that this is a 2008 Ford Fiesta S 1.6. Many thanks in advance buddy. I have tried and am not able to use the above posted link for some reason.
