The check digit is different on every vehicle. Basically, the check digit is the difference between the sum of all of the other digits, and a preset number, so when all seventeen are added, no matter what car, what serial number, they all add up the same.

CB9 - duh!
8----- 5 door 4sp auto
5------ LX
3------ What Kabuki said (still confused)
N------ 1992
A------ Maysville, Ohio (dam I wanted a "c")
006311 ------made on a Tuesday after lunch after #6310 that came fully modified and gold plated.

How does yours measure up?- steve

What else do you need to know? Sounds like it's a Accord wagon to me. If you really want to check for proper vin there are a few more areas to check. Of course the vin plate front windshield and the windows are the obvious. Inside enginge stamped on frame (just to the right of fusebox above intake hose)
