Ask your SA to give the full chassis number, so that you can get the month also which is really matter while registering your vehicle at RTO. Also i suggest you to physically check the same on your vehicle before accepting the deal.

If the last character is M then it can only register as December 2012 Make, if its saying A then it can be registered as January 2013 vehicle.
Hey Wildon,

As per ur suggestion and Tbhp PDI checklist, I went to do a pre-registration check and checked under the seat and invoice. Indeed the last character is A in the VIN under the drivers seat. All smiles.

Thanks Wildon.

Hey Wildon,

My brother is buying an I20 Sportz and was able to get the following -

VIN # - MALBB51BLCM511428

I am able to determine the 'Year of Manufacture' but have been struggling to decipher the Month.

Can you please decode this and also mention how do I determine the Month on a Hyundai car from a VIN, which of late, has only 17 digits as oppose to an earlier 19 digits.

Hi Wildon

The dealer claims that this RITZ is Jan 2012 made.
Is it correct?

MA3FDEBIS00366292AC
Apart from this Engine no is given near the door D13A (then space is there) 1778274.

Can you please decode this for me?
