Bentley Recalls 600 Cars for Hood Ornament Corrosion

Bentley is performing a recall reached us this week.
The problem is not mechanical, nor is it very dangerous. But it could be. Bentley will recall 596 Arnage R, Arnage T, Arnage RL, Brookland and Azure models manufactured in between 2007 and 2009 because of the... hood ornament.
There is a potential for the 'B' hood ornament's retracting mechanism to become corroded. This may lead to the 'B' hood ornament not retracting as intended when a vehicle is involved in a crash. If the hood ornament does not retract, it could increase the risk of injury to a pedestrian in the event of a crash between the vehicle and the pedestrian."
