Last 3 digits will continue to tell about month/year.
If you have any VIN for 90hp, please post, let us see how its different.

Wildon must be knowing though.

MCA11834D07019117GNZ
As per the decoding its a july 2010 manufactured vehicle, am i right?
Is it ok to take delivery of the vehicle?
i think FIAT produced more 90 hp and there are not too many takers for it.

Yes it is July manufactured. This is ok, but make sure you do the PDI properly.
Also make sure ODO is near to zero. Do reset the odo to delete the temporary odo with "H" that comes initially. You will see "H" letter on the MID. Fiat started providing that to make sure car is not run extra. If you don't see H, don't take it, mostly car is old is driven more than 200KM.
