Customer Question
I notice an excelleration-lag...

I notice an excelleration-lag in my new 2017 Bentley Mulsanne when taking a 90 degree corner, especially from a stop to start motion. Also, my rear view camera is not as detailed as other cars that I own. Can it be improved with an electronic change?

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes, fully charged!

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mulsanne yourself? What have you tried so far?

No! Not in my capabilities today!

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, but THANK YOU!

Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great! My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this.

First off, congratulations on the new Mulsanne! They are a beautiful vehicle, and on top of my wife's must have list, hence why I am always busy working haha.

So the acceleration issue you are experiencing is most likely a normal characteristic due to the adaptive steering system. When the vehicle is at an angle it redistributes the torque so that none of the wheels slip, when this happens it will seem like the car has lost a bit of power, but it is in fact just distributed a bit differently than normal. If it gets any worse or if you still think it is not enough then you may want to call the dealer and see if there is an update.

On the mirror issue, does it seem to be grainy/pixelated at all? These cameras get very finicky if there is anything on the surface, so make sure the lens is free of any dirt
