So if you’ve bought one of the first 2023 VinFast VF 8 models or a fleet of 153, listen up.
The vehicle’s display screen, VinFast says, can go black while driving or sitting. The VF 8 has just a single display screen in the center of the dash. There’s not even a gauge cluster in front of the driver. So losing the screen means losing everything, from the backup camera to the speedometer to warning messages about any mechanical problems with the car.
VinFast says shutting the car off and turning it back on again brings the screen back.
The company can fix the issue permanently with an over-the-air software update. So owners don’t need to bring in the car for repair.
