HI all. I have recently purchased a 62 reg Accord Type-S (ADAS). I have been trying to properly work out the model year of the car. It was registered in OCT 2012, but when I look at the VIN, it reads as a 2013. I was looking at this web site Honda Accord Saloon (08-15) used car prices | Parkers and the 62 can be 2012 / 62 reg 2013 / 62 reg Can you guys confirm what year it is? I am not sure when new model year starts. From checking the links on this site I worked it out as below.... JHMCU3570DCxxxxxx JHM -Manufacturer, Make and Type of Vehicle - (JHM) = Honda Motor Corp, Honda Passenger Vehicle CU3 - Line, Body, Engine Type = CU3 = Accord Decial N22B1, N22B2 5 - Body Type and Transmission Type = 4-Door Sedan/6-speed manual 7 - Vehicle Grade (Series) = Type-S 0 - Fixed Code = 0 D - Model Year - D = 13 C - Factory Code = Satsuma Factory in Japan xxxxxxx = Manufacturing Serial number Also, while I am at it, what is the difference between the N22B1 and N22B2 engine? I have the N22B2.
