Vin's have 17 characters. The spot where the X and/or second 2 occupies is the "check digit" in a Focus VIN. It can be anything. It looks like Ford used CL431819 for the Canadian car. I think your dealer gave you bad info. Contact them and see where the error lies.

Gotta run, dealer just called and said my Ti is actually here....
Yeah, it seems like you got the wrong VIN somehow. The last six digits are unique to each Focus, there can be no duplicates of the last six AFAIK.
