Of those, 113 vehicles are Ford Ranger Wildtrak 3.2 pickup trucks which were the bestsellers in the Vietnamese market. The cars were produced between October 29, 2016 and January 27, 2017.

The remaining cars are Ford Everest 2.2L AT 2WD models, manufactured between December 10, 2016 and January 12, 2017.

The recall is attributed to failure in their airbag activation devices, which might cause the safety equipment to not inflate when a collision occurs.

These cars will be recalled until September 30, 2020, with repair time taking just two hours per vehicle.

The Vietnam Register has recommended clients of Ford Vietnam to bring their cars for quality check to ensure safety.
