VW's Bentley recalls 27,640 cars for battery cable problems

Wednesday, Oct 28, 2015

Volkswagen's ultra-luxury division Bentley has recalled 27,640 cars globally because of potentially faulty battery cable joint connections, a spokesman at Bentley said.

The number of recalled vehicles, more than double Bentley's record 11,020 deliveries last year, includes 5,906 cars in China, the brand's second-biggest market after the Americas, he said.

"This is a voluntary recall and is in no way connected to any other recalls from other automotive manufacturers," Bentley said on Tuesday in an emailed statement.
