Need to Check the Year What Should I Look for

I know there is a sticker on the drivers side door but is there any other places to look to find info. on when the car was made on the sticker it has 10/2008 .
But the AutoCheck shows a date of 01/25/2008 so I am wondering if there was some work done. There is no milage shown for this date. Only that it was in Altanta GA and registration event/renewal titled or registered as a rental vehicle or part of a rental fleet

there is a catalys sticker on the underside of the hood, an id tag to the left of the battery and a production date on the driver side door/jamb

well your registration will say what year the car is according to the vin number. dmv takes care of that stuff.

10th digit in vin is year code.
8th digit in vin is engine code.
if door sticker says 10/2008
I'd say thats when built and its
a 2009 model, but need the 10th digit

Exactly. If you want to make sure there are lots of VIN decoders on the net. You just find one, type in your vin code, and they can tell you mfg date, original color, really just anything you need to know.
