Via the new function, such a mistake is possible. The new function creates a new thing, names it and classifies it as specified (ie sedan). If the specified class (ie sEdan) does not exist, it will create it.

To avoid this situation, use the following method: (new 'vehicle8)
(set sedan instance vehicle8)

Via above method, the following will not be accepted ... (set sEdan instance vehicle8)

... and dbd prompts user with "What is sEdan?"
