May I ask in what tool you look this up ?
AIR and ISPA Light have no information concerning this.
Just wondering

Edit : I'm using AOS online FWIW.

Can someone do a quick check? I also wonder since a lot of the parts on my engine are labeled 2003, but my car was built in 2001....

Thanks in advance!

Looks like your car had the engine replaced in 2003 due to spun bearing. And it had the bearings replaced on the new engine in 2004 at 30,950.

Weird, the carfax doesn't show this record which is fine because carfax misses things but it doe report a 10,000 mile inspection on 11/10/2004... no millage was reported.

Probably should call the dealership directly and see if I can get any details out of them.


never mind, called the dealership directly and they confirmed.
Thanks again!

+1 on this. i figured out where most of the dealer performed "maintenance" happened on my car. Local to me. Paid a visit to a service advisor and got full history that was not detailed on Carfax.
