This may be a stupid question...but I ask this because I keep hearing that if you go for a G500 get a "2004 or newer"....

What exactly do people mean?

For example I've seen a G500 that has a manufacturer date stamped on the door of 05/03 yet the car ownership says "2004".

So "when" does a car qualify for 2004, for example? I mean, if I were to buy this car would I be getting one of the "better", non-2002, non-2003 models?

Perhaps my ignorance expects me to see an 04 production date stamped for an 04.

I'd appreciate an enlightenment from the group....

Historically, the production on G's switches to the next years model in Spring ... so the 2010 are being built now

You typically can tell different model years by changes in design (2002 had no Turn Signal in Mirror, etc), but those things can be 'updated'. The surest way to tell is look at the VIN. The VIN has the Model Year in it (e.g. WDCYR49E34X147404 ... is a 2004 based on the 4 between the 3 and X)
