Help! If I have the VIN number of a Mercedes 1980 to 1995 - non US registered - where can I find infomation on that vehicle and model type? ie. is it manufacured to US safety specs and what was the exact date of manufacture. I want to export a couple cars with me to Canada when I leave Japan, but they must meet US safety statdards to be eligible for import.

Car fax let you do the checking online..

http://www.carfax.com

It will be tough to import one from Japan to Canada as Canada has stricter rules...

Sell all the cars and get one locally may be a better choice...

Hope this helps..

Thanks for the info, but Carfax does not work for foreign registered cars. Plus I can get a pristine 84/85/86 500SEC / 560SEL etc with approx. 60,000miles for about US$5000 via attending a local auction and having shipped on my own.
