    An interesting Video, especially given that check digit “4” is used as a preventative measure against typographical errors. Immediately beneath that, in the same box is the word “Assenbly”. I presume they meant “Assembly” but the check digit got it wrong. Doesn’t anybody at GM proofread anymore before publishing.😂

      The 5th field for model and type of interior seems wrong.

      My VIN has a "7" there so perhaps "A, B and C" should be "6,7 and 8"?

      You'll notice that in the example it has an "8" but says that the letters "ABC" denote the trim level.

        Based on this thread: https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...full-vin/page2

        It appears MY 2020 is an anomaly. late model C7s use the alpha designations, and so do 2021, but 2020s used 6, 7, and 8. Probably there's a reason for that. Maybe GM acknowledgement that there will be more than 10 model / trim designations:

        Stingray 1, 2, and 3 LT
        Z06 1, 2 and 3 LZ
        E-ray 1, 2 and 3 ET? LE?
        etc.

        There were a bunch of different values for the C7, with 4 models, each with 3 trim levels*, and two transmission options.

        * Did the ZR-1 have multiple trim levels?

          Yes.
          6 = 1LT
          7 = 2LT
          8 = 3LT

            That confused me too, not very well explained.

                These typos--or really mistakes-- always make me laugh. On the C7s there was a problem related to the A8 automatic transmission in which the transmission would exhibit some shuddering under certain conditions. The solution was a triple flush of the transmission fluid with some newer fluid. On the service order I got it described the problem as "Shuttering" a couple of times. I noticed it in several service orders posted by others so it was in the automatic printout of Chevrolet's service order software. In this day and age of spell checkers apparently no one actually learns how to spell. I have also seen lots of posts that refer to the "breaks" on a car rather than brakes. Oh well. --Bob

                Edit: Ha ha. The irony. I looked at the video after I wrote this post. When describing the reason for the check digit she said that it "guards against typographical errors".
