Trying to get VMI on G500-no luck.

Can anyone help me get a VMI on a 2002 G500? I just want to see the vehicles history before I drop some cash. I am in OK and the truck is in CA.
VIN:WDCYR49E62X131064

You have to get that from a MB dealer. But I've read on here they are getting harder to obtain. A lot of dealers are now claiming sharing them is violation of the previous owner's privacy.

Agreed 100%. I was lucky enough to get what I have before the dealers changed their tune. But bear in mind it doesn't tell you everything anyway. Anything the customer pays for is supposedly not on there so for that you'd have to ask the PO or the service facility.

What I don't understand is that they say it is a privacy issue for the previous owner and they can't show me that, but if I buy the vehicle and show proof of ownership then they will show me all of the info-in my opinion that's still a privacy issue.

I agree. Once you buy the car you should be entitled to the info. I guess while you're still shopping it is a gray area.

I pulled your VMI here at work. I can't print it but email me and I'll go over it with you.
