Recall Has 2018 Bentley Mulsanne Owners Looking Over Their Shoulder

2018 Bentley Mulsanne

Rare is the day when you'll hear the words "Mulsanne" and "slow" together in the same sentence without being separated by "not." It's also rare that anyone would suggest you need to check behind you given the Mulsanne's twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V-8 Used Engine . Today, however, is special — and for 10 owners of a 2018 Bentley Mulsanne, I don't mean that in a good way.

There's a new recall out for two fistfuls of Mulsannes regarding their backup cameras. Though not catastrophic; it's more of a suboptimal-performance type of glitch: When you select Reverse, the backup camera should display within 2 seconds. In the case of the afflicted Mulsannes, the display may be obstructed or not fully visible in that time — it's slow, in other words.

Owners of the $190,000-plus sedans (or their personal assistants) likely already know there's a fix, but on the off chance that you're one of the unfortunates, read on for the full details.

Vehicles Affected: 10 model-year 2018 Bentley Mulsanne luxury sedans

The Problem: When Reverse has been selected, the rearview camera display may be obstructed or may not be fully visible within 2 seconds. If the driver does not check surroundings before backing up, there may be an increased risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the software in the infotainment system for free.

What Owners Should Do: Bentley will begin notifying owners by the end of September. Owners can call the automaker at 800-777-6923, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
