Bentley is a high-end performance auto marketer and maker of SUVs and luxury cars. Since 1998, they have been a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group. In 1919, Bentley Motors Limited was founded by W.O. Bentley and is headquartered in Crewe, England – rather than its original headquarters of Cricklewood, North London. In 1930, 1929, 1928, 1927, and 1924, a Bentley automobile was victorious in the race known as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Though a small number of cars are still assembled at the factory in Dresden, the Crewe factory is responsible for most assembled Bentleys.

The Ugly Side: Common Bentley Car Problems Encountered
Though many people associate the Bentley name with luxury and performance, they have not been without their drawbacks. We have listed a number of the most common car issues here:
One of the most notable Bentley recalls began in 2015 and involved the 2012 to 2013 Continental Flying Spur and Flying Spur from 2014, The 2012 to 2014 Continental GTC, and the 2012 to 2015 Continental GTC. The problem ended up being located near the firewall and was narrowed down to a loose cable. For drivers, this posed a fire risk.
2017 Bentaygas experienced a recall in2016 over loose seats. The instrument panel joints and seat mechanism, it was discovered, was not tightened properly. Therefore, to fix the issue, dealers would have to be capable of re-tightening the parts. As of last year, only a handful of cars still needed this repair.
Incorrect tether length on airbags may not seem like a big deal, but due to the fact that it could interfere with deployment and damage the bag itself, Continental Flying Spur’s and Continental GT’s from 2004 and 2006 were recalled for airbag replacement.
Drivers ran an increased risk of a crash due to certain Bentley limousines and passenger vehicles experiencing issues with the low-pressure brake fluid feed between the remote reservoir and the master cylinder. Apparently there was a potential for it to retain air or trap air.
Most recently there has been a recall on early Flying Spur and Continental GT models, as well as on Bantayga SUVs for loose battery cables and loose seats.
