Bentley Motors Australia has recalled 158 examples of its 2015-2023 Bentayga due to an issue with the wiring harness in the fuel tank.
“Due to a design defect, the wiring harness within the fuel tank may overheat and melt the fuel inlet flange material,” the company says in its recall notice.
“If this occurs fuel may leak, and if exposed to an external ignition source result in a vehicle fire.
“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders and/or damage to property.”
“Note: If the relevant warning lamp illuminates in the instrument cluster or the smell of fuel is noticed around the vehicle (e.g. after filing the fuel tank with petrol) owners should contact their local Bentley dealer immediately.”
