I have just received the VIN for my captiva. the funny part is that Chevy VINs were supposed to have changed from Feb 2011, but if I apply the earlier VIN Decoding it tallies perfectly but not with the new key. what gives?

Hello Wildon,

Could you please decode this Hyundai Verna:

MALCU41ULCM081505

I got this number from the dealer but he didn't mention the last 2 digits which i believe is in the form of *X (Alphabet)

Could you please help me decode this.

Thanks

Just back from my PDI. Can you look into your crystal ball Wildon for the following VIN

NewFordFiesta : MAJ2XXMRJ2CK87324

From your ford decoding table, looks like June 2012. How do you get all the other details.. Just curious. It's okay if the magician doesn't wanna tell.
Thanks in advance

Hello Wildon, you're doing a great job helping everyone out with their VIN's here on the forum.

If you could decode the VIN for my Jetta which is expected in a week or two, I would highly appreciate it.

VIN: WVWG12169CA553612

Thanks a ton!

Hey Wildon,
Thanks for the info, let me add that you been doing a great service to the community.

The seller wasn't aware of VIN concept at all till I told him, he himself checked it with erWIN.Skoda-auto.cz site and told me the
D.o.m.:10.05.2012. It looks like the dealer(Gurudev motors, Chennai) has taken him for a ride. He is tryin to sell the car back to the dealers with the help of some RTO Senior official.

Cheers.
