I'm in the market for a used E230 1998. Since this is the first time
I'm buying a Mercedes, I dont know much about fool-proof ways of
verifying whether it's an E200/230/240 etc. There's always people who
likes to poke around the label/signature etc such as slapping E240
instead of original E200/230. So if anyone out there can give some
hint please share.
If you take the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and enter it
into CarFax it should tell you the model number and any recalls,
accidents, title transfers, etc. It costs about $20 for a certain
period of time (30 days?) but it's a miniscule amount for the
peace of mind when buying a $20,000 vehicle.
