    Indeed, while this doesn't prove my sanity, it does mean I wasn't hallucinating when I reported the 3 year warranty info on the window sticker.
    However, the fresh new sticker INside the vehicle does show the typical 4 year base warranty. Very strange...Attachment 29292Attachment 29293

    That may be a CANADIAN sticker as they have always only had 3 year 36,000 mile warranties up there since the new FIAT was introduced in 2011.

    That is interesting! This is on the very first '18L rec'd by this dealer in Austin, TX! You reckon they made a wrong turn somewhere after taking port in Jacksonville,FL? Interesting!

    OR, somehow the wrong sticker got printed...sounds like a possible computer glitch.

    I get the feeling FCA is wingin' it on the 500 production schedule and making it up as they go along. Might be a real short production run or maybe the model year might actually match the calendar year. My best guess is that 2019 500's will be distinguished only by the Monroney sticker that says 2019 and perhaps a few new paint choices. As for your sanity Coach, it seems fine to me- that was a great catch and one most folks would have missed. FCA should hire you ... iirc they had problems with Jeep Renegade and I think 500X VIN's as well when they were first introduced. My own sanity I do worry about- one day a few months back I arrive at work, get out of the car and have trouble walking. I look down and I had two different shoes on.

    Some days it doesn't pay to get up.

    .
    Reminds me of the first grader who walked into class and the teacher said: "Don't you have your shoes on the wrong feet?" To which he replied: "These are the only feet I have!!!"
