Customer Question

We're considering buying a 2008 oR 2009 Bentley Continental GTC. We're wondering if these are high maintenance cars and if they have lots of problems. Thanks.

This really depends on a lot of factors:

-Miles
-service history
-type of owner
-how many owners

Generally, with good service history, serviced by a proper facility, and under 40k miles, these cars are surprisingly reliable. Make sure the air suspension is working properly, there are no fluid leaks, especially coolant, and the service schedule has been followed to the T.

We work on about 10 of these at my shop, and see about the same number of problems as a similar year Audi.
