VinFast is recalling nearly 6,000 VF 5 cars sold in the Vietnam domestic market to replace the combination switch, the company told Reuters on Tuesday.

The vehicles were manufactured from March to December last year but only one was recorded with the switch error and no incidents had occurred.

Reuters said VinFast discovered during tests that the front lights on some VF 5 Plus vehicles, sold only in Vietnam, are turned off if the driver pulls the combination switch strongly to turn on the ignition, the EV maker said.

The problem was with a control circuit board design error from the component supplier, it added.
