What year is it?

Does anyone know how to tell what year a RV with just the VIN. We are looking to purchase a Cherokee 5er. The owner says it's a 2009 but the DMV says it's a 2007 per their registration.

VIN: 4X4FCKD277X105381
Cherokee 285B+BS

The 10th digit is the year. In this case its a 7 which is for 2007

Thanks guys for the quick response! Big NADA difference between '07 & 09'. More negotiating to be done.

Maybe he bought it new in 2009 but that doesn't make it a 2009.
