Bentley reports the same rear axle problem as Audi and VW; one recall for Ferrari (week 30/21)


English EN Español ES Français FR Italiano IT Polski PL Русский RU

This week recalls:
– Bentley Bentayga – rear axle nut
– Ferrari – „Stop & Start“ System
– Mercedes Vito – transverse control arm
– Renault Master – parking brake


Five recalls of five manufacturers were issued for seven models in the 30th week of 2021 through the Rapex system.

Audi, Bentley, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Renault have one recall each.

In mid-July, we wrote about a recall for nine Audi and Volkswagen Tiguan models due to a possible cracking of the nut on the eccentric bolt on the lower lever arm of the rear axle. This week, the Bentley Bentayga is being recalled for the same reason.

The “Stop & Start” system may not activate when the vehicle is started with two 2017-2021 Ferrari models. The axle cross member may break on approximately 150 Mercedes V-Class and Vito models due to insufficient welding. With Renault Master vans manufactured in February 2021, the parking brake may be impaired due to a defect in the right rear calliper. Moisture may penetrate the control unit of the Audi A8 and S8.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
