Bentley announced the recall of more than 200 cars in Russia


Experts of the analytic agency AUTOSTAT have already reported that the sales of Bentley cars in Russia in 2018 were 298 units, by showing an increase of 27%. Now, some of them came under a revocable campaign.

Thus, Volkswagen Group Rus company announced the recall of 207 Bentley Continental and Mulsanne cars, reports the press service of Rosstandart. It is noted that 111 units of Bentley Continental that were sold in 2018 and 96 Bentley Muslanne cars that were sold from 2012 to 2018 are to be recalled.

The reason for the recall of the Continental model is the need to update the software, in which the error was found. In some cases, it can lead to a temporary shutdown of the power steering, which is fraught with an increased risk of accidents. In order to prevent this, Bentley Continental cars will be updated with the power steering control unit software.

The reason for the recall of the model Bentley Muslanne is called seat belt anchorage, which under certain conditions may not withstand the load. In Bentley Muslanne cars, the rear seat belt anchorages will be replaced with upgraded ones that provide the required fastening reliability.

Official Bentley dealers in Russia will inform car owners about the need to provide a vehicle to the nearest dealership for repairs.
