E = Eagle
3 = passenger car
C = automatic seat belts
T = Laser or Talon AWD
6 = Special Price Class, there's also medium, high & premium
4 = Three door hatchback
4 = Hmm, what engine, should be a letter
8 = check digit?
M = year, 1991

so how come the engine code doesnt work out? i hope it wasnt suppose to be a 1.8 or something, lol, also what does this "Special Price Class"?? i got it for 700, maybe thats why is "Special",

Thanks,

Alan

I'd say there is two possibilities, either the person/machine stamping the VIN screwed up or you got that digit wrong when you copied it down.

As for the special price class, not sure.

it must be stamped wrong, cuase its right there, the dealership knows its a 2.0Turbo AWD with out me telling them, and he wasnt smart enough to know that that was the only engine for the awd, i dunno, pretty wierd,

I believe the price class is an indicator for insurance companies on what to charge you for insurance on your car. Not sure about this but thats the only thing I can think of.
