Hello,

I joined the site in 2011 and was wondering if someone could help me out with checking out a vin# to a Polaris I was looking at buying.The seller gave me this vin# 4XAZX8XA59A259984.When I input it in the Polaris website it said "Your VIN was not listed in our database. Please recheck VIN, or contact customer service." Has anybody ran across anything like this before or could it possibly be a wrong number or letter in the vin he gave me?

Thanks in advance.

Supposed to be a 2010.Unfortunately the seller doesn't have the title which is why I am trying to search it out as much as possible.Hopefully call Polaris tomorrow and see what they say.Not sure why it wouldn't be showing up by doing the vin search on their site.

al53,

Did you look at each number closely and see any that you didn't think were the number he gave me? I tried over and over and can't find anything that doesn't look like the numbers he gave me.I was hoping someone could catch something I missed.
