Here is the car data. Sorry no other info.
Thanks for that Wildon.

Now, the engine number here and the engine number on the vehicle dont match!

So that's put a whole lot of confusion to the equation.

I found a sticker in the boot that has the following chassis number

WDB1241312C217544

Thanks again.

I also have Dec 2011 Wagon VXI , and could infer the date of manufacture from the VIN number during purchase.

IIRC, open the bonnet and look at left side, you will see the complete VIN and last two digits are preceded by $

Hi all, Request you to please clarify if a VIN No. is the same as a Chassis No.?

Also, where can I find the VIN No. on a Palio?

Wildon,

recently I heard from a friend that his i20 Crdi had a 17 digit Vin and not 19!! The engine no was a 12 digit one!!

Are you aware of any such changes, if yes, could you please put up the new decoder ;-)

Regards,
Shrey

If your 19th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month - July

Month Codes:

A = JAN
B = FEB
C = MAR
D = APR
E = MAY
F = JUN
G = JUL
H = AUG
J = SEP
K = OCT
L = NOV
M = DEC

Year Codes:

A = 2010
B = 2011
C = 2012
D = 2013
E = 2014
F = 2015
G = 2016
H = 2017
J = 2018
K = 2019
