2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible recalled due to roof fault

Bentley has recalled 37 examples of its Continental GT Convertible in Australia, citing a potential safety risk associated with the electric roof mechanism. The affected vehicles are designated MY2020, and were sold between November 2019 and November 2020. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says “the convertible roof can be activated using the key fob at distances greater than six metres.”

Total recall: Every car recall issued in Australia in 2020 so far – UPDATE

Let’s get one thing out of the way early – taking care of your car’s recall notice is an easy thing to let slide. Despite the urgency of the manufacturers and their sincere warnings about all the awful things that can go wrong if you ignore it, we’re all guilty of occasionally letting a recall service fall down the to-do list. Hot tip: Don’t let that happen. Recalls are issued for a reason and not fulfilling them could see drivers and passengers injured or killed.

Bentley to go fully-electric by 2030

The British luxury maker has just announced that its entire range will be pure electric by 2030. This means the company will go from its current status as being the world’s largest producer of 12-cylinder engines to being combustion-free in less than a decade.
