Recall roundup: Bentley Continental and Flying Spur models image

Bentley Motors has issued a recall for the Continental and Flying Spur models because of a loose battery cable connection.

If you thought that luxury cars are immune to recalls, Bentley is proving otherwise as the car manufacturer has recently announced a recall for the Continental and Flying Spur models. According to the automaker, these models will have to be taken back to the dealers because of a loose battery cable connection.

“On a limited number of cars, a bolted connection for a battery cable joint could be loose where it passes through the front bulkhead. To address this, we will replace the components with a new connection system for all vehicles, which will take approximately two hours per car. All Bentleys built outside of these dates, and all Mulsanne models, are unaffected”, says Bentley in its press release.

The affected cars are the Continental GT, Continental GTC and Flying Spur, which have been produced between February 2011 and June 2014. A total of 7,778 units are found in the United States. The company’s dealers will be making the necessary repairs free of charge to customers and this will take approximately two hours per vehicle. Owners of these models will be contacted by their local Bentley dealer to arrange an appointment. This recall is voluntary and it’s not connected to other recalls from other automotive manufacturers.
