Did I really buy an S-10

Hi, all,

Imagine my surprise when I went shopping for cheaper insurance to find that the VIN on my brand new 2005 SSR codes out to be an S-10. Wish I could get the insurance rate for and S-10! Apparently Chevy changed their coding of the VIN on 2005 model. Any clue to what's going on? I searched the forum, but didn't get anything relevant on "VIN". Have others run into this?

By the way, the SSR is my 22nd car, and nothing else even comes close. 400hp in a secure convertible with a HUGE trunk and artistic style? Only thing I could think of that would come close is a Ferrari 308GTSi, and I wouldn't trade my SSR for one (even if had just had a full maintenance performed on it!).

This issue came up when the SSRs first came out, and there was a lot of conversation about it. There should be some old threads out there covering the topic.

It seems to be in the insurance databases that way. If I remember correctly, the feeling was that as long as you disclosed the value for full replacement insurance, there should be no problem.
