VinFast is recalling 2,097 electric vehicles to fix various technical issues.

Some of the VF e34 and VF 5 Plus cars produced between September 2023 and April 2024 face the threat of bolts securing the upper cover of the high-voltage battery becoming loose, leading to a potential reduction in the water resistance.

This issue affects 23 VF e34 and 131 VF 5 Plus units.

VinFast will inspect and tighten the bolts and replace the high-voltage battery if needed.

VF 6 Plus vehicles produced between March 18 and April 9 this year have a potential defect that could cause the brake fluid hose connectors to crack, leading to possible brake fluid leakage.

If the brake fluid drops below the minimum threshold, a warning will appear on the control screen, and the braking system's effectiveness will be reduced. The number of potentially affected vehicles is 47.

VinFast will inspect and replace the brake fluid hoses in the affected vehicles free of charge.

In VF 8 and VF 9 (Eco and Plus) cars manufactured between August 2022 and March 2024, incorrect airbag types might have been installed in certain places.

After approximately 10,000 kilometers of use, an airbag warning and inspection request may appear on the screen.

If the airbags are not of the correct type, they may not deploy in the event of a severe collision under certain conditions.

In all, 1,134 VF 8 Eco and VF 8 Plus vehicles and 762 VF 9 Eco and VF 9 Plus vehicles are being recalled.

VinFast has reported these issues to the Vietnam Register and will individually notify vehicle owners, asking them to bring their vehicles to authorized service centers.
