Hanoi (VNA) - Ford Vietnam is recalling nearly 11,800 Ranger, Everest and Ranger Raptor cars using 2.0L Bi-Turbo engines due to broken gear oil pumps.

The recall aims to update the software of the gearbox control module and engine control module for imported Ranger pickups and Everest SUV.

The affected vehicles include Ford Ranger 2.0L Bi-Turbo produced between November 29, 2017 and October 12, 2019; Ford Everest 2.0L Bi-Turbo from December 15, 2017 to October 12, 2019 and Ford Ranger Raptor from February 1, 2018 to October 7, 2019 at the Ford factory in Rayong, Thailand.

The faulty vehicles may encounter a situation that the transmission gear failures can cause loss of gear oil pressure, leading to transmission error, increasing the risk of collision.

Ford Vietnam said estimated repair time is less than half a working day./.
