Answer

Any manually entered VIN or changes made to the VIN from a vehicle's edit page will take priority over what is retrieved from the engine. The system enables users to edit the VIN, and honors what they choose. The reason for this is to allow users the capability to correct invalid VINs, without the system changing it back automatically to what it is retrieving from the engine.
