Volkswagen China is to recall 5,906 Bentley Flying Spur and Continental luxury sedans imported into the Chinese mainland over a potential problem with the battery cable, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement yesterday.
The affected cars are from the 2012-2014 model years. They were produced between February 5, 2012, and May 15, 2014.
Their 12-volt battery cable has a bolted connection that may become loose. If it loosens, the battery won’t be able to ignite the engine to start, leaving the cable to overheat and posing a fire risk.
The recall is to replace the battery cable bolts.
Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by Bentley dealerships from November 10.
