    Default Is this sentence correct?

    Sentence: "I think the company has erred by making this hybrid car a/the two door car."

    Question: Is this sentence's syntax and grammar correct?

    Thanks,

    Regards

    "Erred" not "errored." And yes, "a two-door car."

    As long as it uses "a", not "the", it's all fine.
