Your post about Maruti says that the VIN should be 20/21 digit number. But my VIN no is 17 digit. This is the VIN for my Sx4 - MA3EFJC1S00167007.That is why the confusion I suppose.

Wildon,
According to your post on the first page, it says VIN no should be 20 characters for Swift. Last 2 characters represents month & year.
But I have only 17 characters, thats why asked your help !!

Great info. My new Chevy car has VIN as MA6JFDDDBBH013990. I understand from the 9th & 10th characters,it means Feb 2011. Please help me in decoding the other characters.

PS: I was given all reasons on delivery lead times, surprised to see that the May delivered car was actually manufactured in Feb itself and was tasting the one or another yard :Frustrati. Is it normal?


Chevrolet
B = FEB
B = 2011

2010 Maruti-Suzuki Car

Maruti Car VIN has 17 Characters which doesn't carry the Month and Year Code.

For getting the Month and Year code of Maruti car you have to Look Under the Bonnet near to the hinges there will be additional Letter/Number . if you found that for e.g GA then its July 2010 Manufactured Vehicle.

other month are giving below
A= JAN
B= FEB
C= MAR
D= APR
E= MAY
F= JUNE
G= JULY
H= AUG
J= SEP
K= OCT
L= NOV
M= DEC

Hi Wildon

Would be grateful for your inputs on this one. The VW dealer has given me 2 VINs to choose from (one more expected soon) - [FONT=&quot]WVWL101K5AA554947 and WVWL101K5AA554883[/FONT]. Have read through the thread and from the easy VW decoder on the first page I gather that its been manufactured in November (L meaning NOV). But using the link you suggested it throws up a different date - April. Here are the results:


In one of the posts you sent I recollect seeing one of the detailed lists. Will be great if you kindly decode the entire "works" - it will help me decide. I know some of them are available for a fee; if you already have access it would be wonderful for an entire history please:

Found this site for VW.
VIN decoder for AUDI, VOLKSWAGEN, SKODA, SEAT, MITSUBISHI, OPEL, FORD, vin code check, vin decoding

Entered my VIN and generated a concise report with manufacturing date and stuff. A complete detailed report with more than 100 items, cost me 3.75 euros and I am happy with what i have.

I am guessing Omega man got his report generated from here too.

Thanks Ventolute. This is where I got the 2 basic reports from. Had requested wildon for his views as he's the boss when it comes to VINs!

The report generated and the point you made are true. The actual production date is what you mentioned, but on your RC Book it will be mentioned as its a NOVEMBER 2010 make vehicle.

If you have problem with NOVEMBER 2010 mentioning in your RC better ask for a 2011 model vehicle. if you are getting a good discount better stick to this.

At present i'm away and i will not be able to generate the full report for you now.

Many thanks. I very much appreciate your replying to this even while you are away. Is it fine generating a full report from the link you provided (from where I got the preliminary report). If you are away for long (later this week should be fine as I will meet dealer only on Saturday), should I pay the 6 euros for 2 reports.

Dealer says VW has stopped making Jettas and all they are doing is selling off 2010 manufactured models. Any truth in this statement?
