Quote from: Joesson on October 2, 2022, 10:02In the case of the Petrus vehicle there is clearly something wrong as the on car plate shows the weight to be 1235KG!
Quote from: MikeBoo on October 2, 2022, 11:46Nothing odd or unusual as to the VIN:10th character: Identifies the model year. For example: 1988(J), 1989(K), 1990(L), 1991(M), 1992(N), 1993(P), 1994(R), 1995(S), 1996(T), 1997(V), 1998(W), 1999(X), 2000(Y)------2000(0), 2001(1), 2002(2), 2003(3).
Quote from: Petrus on October 2, 2022, 12:01See the issue?Solved ofcourse but I do wonder how that can be. Stamping both/either a ´0´ and/or a ´Y´. But hey, question answered; Oktober 2000.Small wonder it´s a PFL despite being first registered auntumn 2002.
Quote from: MikeBoo on October 2, 2022, 12:17I don't see any issue.In the UK the plate designation changed with new registrations changed from annual to twice yearly from 1999.

Quote from: bobbe on October 4, 2022, 22:15My 02 also has a 0 for as the tenth character in its VIN. First registered March 2002, Amayama says manufacture date of 2002.01To confuse things somewhat, my 05 MR2 also has a 0 as the tenth character. It's a facelift car, with all the bracing and other changes for a facelift car, first registered in March 2005, and Amayama shows a manufacture date of 2005.01VINs on both cars all line up with all documents, and both are recognised correctly when input into the Toyota owner's site. So, I'm not convinced that the tenth character of the VIN is a reliable guide to production date
Quote from: MikeBoo on October 4, 2022, 22:33That's odd, please can you post the first 11 characters of your VINs, only the 12th to 17th character are unique and Iodentifies the sequence of the vehicle for production.
Quote from: MikeBoo on October 4, 2022, 22:56My 2001 car VIN starts with: JTDFR320400
Quote from: Mezula24 on October 4, 2022, 23:10My November 2005 MR2 also has a 0 displayed as the 10th.character on it's VIN numbers.All VIN numbers on my car match and match documents.
Quote from: Petrus on October 4, 2022, 23:28The plot thickens as to it NOT being a year code in this instance.Even more than the oil level exception this
Quote from: MikeBoo on October 4, 2022, 23:37Maybe we've been using the wrong VIN standard, have a look at Wikipedia in particular the sections headed:ClassificationComponents
Quote from: Petrus on October 5, 2022, 00:03I was thinking along this line because all European owners report the ´0´.This would fit if the European cars differ fron Japan/USA, hence I asked @Dev and @Carolyn.
