Aaron, I am planning to buy a ford fiesta.

I did refer to the earlier pages. However, apart from year & month of manufacture, i am interested to know what do the other characters mean.

Default Re: Toyota Innova Chassis Number Location

[quote=wildon;2250686]Manufacturer: Toyota

VIN Characters: 22 (beginning with MBJ...)

Decode:

19th & 20th character represents the MONTH of Manufacture
21st & 22nd character represents the YEAR of Manufacture

I just asked my dealer for the VIN No. and got a 17 digit no beginning with:
"MBJB29BT*****9491" Seems they have given me a truncated no.
or does Etios have a different VIN system?

Letters I (i), O (o), or Q (q) avoided in 17 Character VIN to avoid confusion with numerals 1 and 0.

Hi Wildon,

Our VW dealer is going to provide us with the VIN number tomorrow for the vehicle we have booked, a VW Polo 1.6L Highline Petrol.

I noticed somewhere on this and some other thread that you provided a detailed decoded list of the VIN in PDF format. Is it possible to do the same for our VIN number too?

Thanks in advance,
Cheers,
/-llvljl-\\)

Just got the VIN number for our Flash Red VW Polo 1.6L Highline Petrol.

Got the full VIN Report of more than 160 points after paying Euro 3.75 online.

Satisfied with the report and the mfg date of the car.
