The answer to your question lies in the Serial number. Below is some info that might help. Also, I think Plumber 101 is a Trane dude, he might be able to help better.

Good luck.

TRANE
Trane used alpha codes in their serial numbers to determine year of manufacture. They started this in 1987 with the letter B and skipped the letters I, O, Q, U, Z
In 2002 they started their serial numbers with the year it was built.
The first letter of the serial number gives the year of manufacture as follows:

9=2009 8=2008 7=2007 6=2006 5=2005 4=2004
3=2003 2=2002 Z=2001 R=2000 P=1999 N=1998
M=97 L=96 K=95 J=94 H=93 G=92 F=91 E=90
D=89 C=88 B=87 S=86 Y=85 X=84 W=83

U=82(seventh digit)
T=81(seventh digit)
O, A=80(seventh digit)

The model number you provided is for the air handler not the actual a/c condenser.

From what I am seeing is that it was made the 21st week of 2008.

Below is a link to the Install and Owners manual

She's claiming it won't shut off setting at 78. 90degrees outside. The one she had before kept the house comfortable.The freon is perfect and all filters, no leaks.

Make sure they have temp probes to measure air temps, and line temps.
Because pressures alone don't tell you anything.
