Recall for the rich: Bentley replacing ornament

BERLIN (AP) - September 23, 2010

Bentley Motors' European head office in Berlin said Thursday the recall affects 620 cars in the United States and Canada and 200 in Europe who 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.
