    Good work on that!! I just put the VN VIN number (6H8VNL35HJL273550) into the VIN web site thinking this may be the first VN made. but came back as Invalid. It did not like the J =1988. It made no diff as to what S/N put in (273550)

    Interesting to see the amount of recalls the VT had. Makes you wonder how many and how soon the VE will score one being a new and very different model.
