Certain lock nuts on the trailing arm of the rear axle can break due to corrosion, which can change the wheel alignment on the rear axle, according to a notice the company submitted to Vietnam Register.

If the rear axle suddenly moves in the wrong direction, the driver could lose control and crash, it added.

There has been no known accidents reported.

The company will contact each owner about a free replacement of the lock nut, which would take around 1.5 hours.

The recall lasts from Nov. 15 to Nov. 14, 2024.
