Rich recall for Bentley owners

2010-09-23 14:21
Berlin - Luxury carmaker Bentley says it is recalling 820 cars worldwide over fears that its famous "Winged B" hood ornament could injure people in an accident because it might not properly retract.

Bentley Motors' European head office in Berlin said Thursday the recall affects 620 cars in the United States and Canada and 200 in Europe which added the raised hood ornament as an option on Arnage, Brooklands and Azure models made between October 2006 and March 2009.

The company says no injuries have been reported but a dealer noticed the spring mechanism under the ornament has a tendency to corrode and might not always function properly.

Bentley, owned by Volkswagen AG, will replace the mechanism free and says the work takes about an hour to complete.
