Listing form says Not A Valid VIN - when the VIN is correct? 1989 Buick
Be very careful..... if you have a bad VIN number, it's a red flag....
VIN number checks with the VIN Breakdown for an 89 Buick. Florida Title issued in 1995 from the original owner.
Odd - most online VIN decoders don't accept this VIN, and my repair manual shows an error in the 'platform code' of your VIN (4th and 5th digits). But a GM VIN breakdown shows "AL" for Buick Century Limited. The ones shown at Wikipedia indicate a "WS" or just a "Y" for Buick Century. Snafu somewhere...
Thanks the car is listed For Sale now: Here is what I originally copied off the Title and entered: 1G4AL51NOK6443179 Here is the VIN the form accepted: (which shows up on Carfax) 1G4AL51N0K6443179 My Only Guess Is That The 9th Digit Was A Numeric Zero - Not An Alpha O.
That is correct. Beginning 1981 the letters "O" and "Q" are not used. HTH. -Jim
