Approximately 230 model-year 2017-18 Bentley Continental Supersports coupes are being recalled because the power-assisted steering cooler pipe may be the incorrect size, allowing the cooler hose to detach and leak power steering fluid. A leak could cause a loss of vehicle control or a hazard to the following traffic, increasing the risk of a crash, and in the presence of an ignition source, the risk of a fire.
Bentley will begin notifying owners on Dec. 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-777-6923 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To remedy the issue, dealers will replace the power-assisted steering cooler pipe.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
