VinFast is recalling 2,781 of its sport utility model VF8 sold in the domestic market to check and replace a bolt connecting the front brake caliper to the knuckle, according to a company announcement released on Saturday.

"Due to a specific component assembly item, the bolt connecting the front caliper to the knuckle may loosen when the vehicle is in operation, potentially reducing the effectiveness of the front brake," VinFast said.

The above error was discovered by VinFast through regular inspection and testing. VinFast said it has not recorded any breakdowns or complaints from customers about the loosen bolt that may cause trouble to the brake.

To completely fix the error, VinFast decided to recall 2,781 affected vehicles to check and replace free of charge new bolts with appropriate washers and torques.

The company will directly notify the affected vehicle owners to arrange a free repair schedule. — VNS
