The Vietnam Register (VR) has announced a large-scale recall of more than 2,500 imported Ford Rangers to check and fix faulty gearshift cables.
All Ford Rangers manufactured by Thailand’s Auto Alliance Co., Ltd with 2.2l engines and MT gearboxes produced in 2015 are being recalled.
VR said that on some affected cars, the gear shift cable could move out of position and hit the propeller shaft which damaged the cables, resulting in a hard gear shift or loss of drive.
Customers should bring their cars to Ford dealerships to check and fix the error. The free repair work would take an estimated two hours.
Ford Rangers used to be the best selling pick-ups in the country, but are now facing import difficulties due to requirements of the Government’s Decree 116/2017/ND-CP, that stipulates the conditions for production, assembly, import and business of automobile warranty and maintenance services issued on October 17 last year.
In the second half of this year, only a small number of the vehicles are expected to be put on the Vietnamese market. The Ranger 2.0 will be released at the end of this year. — VNS
