I bought a Mercedez Benz C Class from a car vendor here in Africa. He told me the vehicle is a 2005 model, however, am skeptical. How can I verify year of make?

Question type: General

A car vendor sold me a Kompressor C Class here in Africa. His documents showed its a
2005 model. Please note that documents are sometimes doctored here in order to run
away huge tariffs if one imports an older car

Google the VIN. The 10th digit will identify the year. There are 17 digits in the VIN.

BoholMark, Thanks for your answer, however, a google search is not showing any results. Is there a specific site?

Look at the 10th digit on your VIN and post it here. I'll look it up for you.

check on the windscreens , the rear and the front even on both door glass or mirror u will still find the model year even on the original sticker inside door its there you wil see 03 or 04 or 05 or what ever the year model is
