Hello Sir,

Could you please help to decode VIN of Tata Nexon XZ(+) S Diesel Foliage Green manufacturing date, color and etc. details please. They are giving my car within 2 weeks of my order, i am little suspicious considering the longer waiting period of Nexon. Please confirm color as well with other details.

VIN : MAT627149MLG44577

Thanks
Krishna

Hi Krishna ji,

Greetings !!

Theres nothing to be suspicious for this model. As decoded

> Model: Tata Nexon
> Production Year: 2021
> Production Month : July
> Engine: 1.5 Litre Diesel Engine
> BS : BS6 Emission
> OBD: OBD2 Compliant
> Plant: Ranjangaon

Also, Nexon XZ+ Sunroof Diesel is not something which is having higher waiting as there are few takers for top of line model variant in Manual Transmission. Its the Petrol Models where demand and waiting is on higher note and nexon lower end diesel models upto XZ one.

Kind note that dealer margins are highest in top of line Diesel Model. So, If dealer gets allocation for car and theres a buyer towards same - they allocate it immediately

Somehow color of car can not be decoded through VIN as every company has different pattern for reflecting available info and same is not there in Tata Motors through VIN.

Hope should help !!

Thank you so much for the information and insights. I just have one more question(definitely a silly one).

Can a dealer repaint a car into the color i ordered and sell it to me because he already have a different color than i ordered.

Need to get this doubt out of my head, that is the reason i have stressed on color, does the car have any color code on the car so that i can confirm its manufactured color.

Dear Reddy Sahab,

No need to worry, its a July Manufactured car
A Dealer cant do and will never tamper with a brand new car for any reason - leave aside repaint which in itself is a mammoth task been several layers of paint need to be taken off and then need to be applied which also will never match in factory fit and finish.

Although yes contrast roof wrap can be done, but I can tell you in my 18 yrs experience that a dealer showroom has never repainted entire brand new car for sake of color per se to sell in and its not that easy to think about too.

I suggest to go ahead with it with full confidence, theres absolute no concern. Have Trust !!
Hope should help !!

Thank you so much Gagan Sir, a big follower of you.
I just have a question, as soon as i take the delivery of my car(diesel), probably in another week. I have lot of travelling to do, at least 2000 kms within a month. Considering it to be a new car, can i make such distance within a month and also do i need to limit my speed until the first service and what speed would it be.

Hi,

Yes can go in for long drive, however important is for first 1500 Kms
> Gentle acceleration
> Do not revv engine too much to go beyond 3000 rpm.
> Change gears early under 2000 rpm for initial 1500 kms
> Try Different speed pattern for 5th and 6th Gear. Means Drive at varying speed of 60 to 90 on 6th Gear. Drive at varying speed from 45 to 70 on 5th Gear
> Avoid going beyond 80 Kmph speed for first 150 Kms and avoid going beyond 100 Kmph speed till 1500 Kms

Hope should help !!

Hi Sir,
I have gone to check my car Nexon XZ+ (S) Diesel today. Since the executive said your car has arrived at our stockyard.

1) To my shocker, the ODO says 100 KMS. And when i asked the executive, he said they have two showrooms which are 80KMS apart and the load had arrived to the place which is at 80 KMS distance to my area(Shimoga,Karnataka). And the car had arrived to my place(Davangere,Karnataka) on road, with a driver, driving it for the 80 KMS distance. I could also see some scratches in plastic on the driver side door and also the wiring is visible outside, under the copassenger seat(attached pictures). When i asked these to the executive he said, the PDI of the vehicle is not done from showroom side and they will rectify all these during the PDI.

2) The executive also said, in manual transmission vehicles they can reset the ODO during delivery if the KMS run is less than or equal to 250KMS, is this true!!!

3) When i switch on the infotainment system, i am getting the iRA logo which is used in XZ+(O), but i think for the XZ+(S) it should show connect NeXT, when i switch on the infotainment .

Please help me with my above questions and if i can go ahead with the delivery of the car or not. I am in a great dilemma now.

Hi,

Have you once again checked that the car you seeing is indeed for VIN : MAT627149MLG44577
Reason - this definite is July'21 Manufactured one

A) For the first part
"And when i asked the executive, he said they have two showrooms which are 80KMS apart and the load had arrived to the place which is at 80 KMS distance to my area(Shimoga,Karnataka). And the car had arrived to my place(Davangere,Karnataka) on road, with a driver, driving it for the 80 KMS distance"


Looks like to be true if they have stockyard which is at 80 Kms distance

B) For second part of door damage - is it been damaged or scratched ?
Somehow same not clear

C) 2) The executive also said, in manual transmission vehicles they can reset the ODO during delivery if the KMS run is less than or equal to 250KMS, is this true!!!
This is a sub standard unacceptable practice if any dealer does that.
Although such grey areas exist and the best way to rule out these is to buy car of latest lot.

D) Indeed IRA is restricted to Nexon XZ+ Option and not Nexon XZ+ Sunroof
But that IRA feature is related to remote car start with remote vehicle headlight on / off etc
For lower XZA Plus (if correctly recall) Live Vehicle location and geo fence is there

Suggest to ask dealer manager to give demo about infotainment.

For dealers in Pune, are cars driven from factory to stockyards.

This was the reason given by my dealer for high odometer (90 km) on Tata Nexon. He said it was driven from Ranjangaon plant.

And how to derive manufacturing plant from VIN.
