Dear Wildon,

Could you kindly confirm the following VIN (MAKGM251LCN303514) for the Honda City I have just booked.

With the help of your earlier posts, I have understood it to be manufactured in November 2012. Thanks a lot for this wonderful service to the community.

I decoded the VIN of my would-be car using online vagauto.com (http://vagauto.com/mainclass.php) decoder.

Vehicle Identification No. TMBBLHNA4CG030002
Model Designation rapid ambition
Date of production 05.10.2012

Would be taking delivery on Saturday. Asked the SA whether they have any newer make but he retorted that its the only batch they have and the next batch would arrive Jan end.

The full characters i.e MA3FLEB1S00157165*MC known as the chassis number. On which the last two characters i.e MC represents month and year of manufacture.

M = December
C = Year 2012

Its a May 2012 Manufactured car. I'm surprised why a May 2012 manufactured vehicle still sitting at the showroom as Duster is flying of the shelf.

Do a proper PDI and take the decision.

Thanks wildon for the information. I will not accept an old vehicle.
I read somewhere in this forum only that 11th character denotes the month of manufacture of Duster. So what would be the code for October, November and December 2012 manufactured Dusters ?
Thank You
