    Coupe shows up as convertible

    Hi,

    I was wondering whether anyone else has had this problem - some insurance companies think that my car is a convertible (its definatly a coupe). I have asked numerous insurance companies for quotes and occasionally they come up as bein a convertible, yet most of the time it shows up as bein a coupe. Then i have to go through explaining it's not, and for them to spend ages manually looking up the right model. Cant see it being a problem, but would be interested if other people have had this?

    Cheers

    i had this when i was looking for an astra i found a coupe i was tempted to get, rang up my insurance (and 2 other co's) to get a quote and they all said it was a converitble going by the number plate, had to explain for ages that it wasnt,
    tbh it put me off buying the car,

    Yeah, was a bit worrying to begin with, but all the other details tie up. HPI check showed it as a coupe, as well as log book. Just curious as to why some insurance companies think its a convertible.

    I've had this problem too, but not with a coupe.

    My van showed up as a 3 door 2.0DTi hatchback with a couple of insurance companies i've tried.
