Year of car?
I have already placed a deposit on a vehicle which was advertised as a 2014. When I read the spec sheet for the VIN number quoted--it says it was built Prod Date 2013-04-03
Are these cars always produced one year before the model year designation? It seems an article on Wikipedia says the 2010-2012 models were, so am I to infer that the 2014 SHOULD have been built in 2013?
One other thing, the dealer advertised it as having leather seats however, the build sheet says they are Sensatec. The sheet says Upholstery SENSATEC 1/SCHWARZ (KCSW) But, the pics on the website seem to show a grey looking seat? Not black.
I am trying to decide if the seats are a deal breaker, anyone have an opinion? This dealer is a 17 hour drive for me so, I placed the deposit on good faith.
