its actually the 0 in the 9th digit that causes an issue

The 9th digit is a check digit. The acceptable values are 0 to 9 with the letter 'X' standing in for ten. It is the result of a math formula that verifies if the V.I.N. is legitimate. I don't think the '0' there is the problem, it is more like there is a mal-formed V.I.N. that results in a different number in that spot. Maybe the result of the formula is 10, and FCA put zero instead of 'X'? Sounds to me like technical help from FCA might be needed if the V.I.N. appears invalid. I wonder how many vehicles have a similar issue?

I bought a used 2015 Rene, had it since Feb, my insurance will not insure it because of the VIN, FCA Canada won't help, been dealing with this for 2 weeks with no car to drive,. The dealership has agreed to buy it back. What a joke, I also work for FCA,
