Recall Alert: 2007-2009 Bentley Arnage, Azure, Brooklands

2008 Bentley Azure

Bentley Motors is recalling 596 2007-2009 Arnage, Azure and Brookland models over potential safety concerns involving the brand’s signature “B” hood ornament, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The hood ornament retracts when the vehicle is turned off and also in the case of an accident. The mechanism that retracts the ornament can become corroded over time, which can cause it not to retract when the vehicle is involved in a crash.

If the ornament does not retract, it could increase the risk of injury to pedestrians if the accident involves them. Bentley dealers will replace the retractable “B” mechanism free of charge. The recall begins Sept. 27. For more information, owners can call Bentley at 617-488-8500 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
