VIN Screw up?

Registered the WK2 in New Hampshire today. NH DMV interpeted the VIN to be a 6 cylinder, not the V/8 that it is. The eighth character in the VIN is a T. Has anyone else encountered the same situation?

T is the correct eighth digit for the V8 according to the WK2Jeeps site:

Re: VIN Screw up?

DMV registered my 2005 Mustang as a "Mustang 4-door." Didn't know they made those, but I loved the cheap insurance!

Maybe, but the title would be incorrect and that would be a problem down the road.
