HCMC – VinFast, the exclusive distributor for General Motors’ (GM) Chevrolet brand in Vietnam, is recalling over 12,450 Chevrolet Cruze, Orlando and Trax vehicles with airbag defects in Vietnam.

Among these vehicles manufactured from January 2014 to 2018, the Cruze and Orlando cars were locally assembled, while the Trax vehicles were imported. All of them were distributed by GM Vietnam, Thanh Nien newspaper reported.

The vehicle recalls, which received approval from Vietnam Register, were initiated after the airbags supplied by Takata were discovered to be faulty.

The inflators of the airbags have been made in a way that allows moisture to penetrate over time, increasing the risk of injury to drivers and passengers, according to the automaker.

To solve the problem, from May 20, VinFast began conducting free checks and replacing the front airbag inflators in the defective vehicles. The exercise is being carried out across VinFast dealerships nationwide. Checking and replacing inflators for each car takes some 30 minutes.

For the safety of drivers and passengers, VinFast has called on owners of faulty cars to take their vehicles to VinFast dealerships for checks and replacements. The campaign will go on until May 20, 2022.

On June 28, 2018, VinFast, an auto-manufacturing subsidiary of Vingroup, signed a strategic partnership agreement with GM. Under the agreement, VinFast became the exclusive distributor of Chevrolet cars in Vietnam and responsible for GM Vietnam’s after-sales service in the local market, while GM became the preferred automotive technology provider of VinFast.
