When you buy a luxury automobile, you aren’t just buying the look. You are buying a sophisticated piece of machinery that embodies the finest workmanship and uses the highest quality parts. Bentley cars are highly complex performance machines. To ensure they sustain this peak level of performance, regular specialist maintenance with genuine tools and parts is a must. Regular Bentley maintenance is one of the easiest ways to keep it reliable, safe, and on the road for many years to come. Routine vehicle maintenance is a simple process but is key to maintaining the health of your Bentley.
What is Bentley maintenance service?
Bentley maintenance service (or “tune up”/”check up”) is a list of detailed inspections and part replacements at specific intervals. Most Bentley service intervals range from every 5,000 to 10,000 miles or at least once a year, whichever occurs first. There are also time-dependent items that you should perform every 2 or more years regardless of mileage. Proper care and maintenance are crucial elements of protecting your investment and ensuring its longevity. Putting off maintenance tasks like oil changes can be bad for less sophisticated cars. On the highly advanced and powerful engine in your Bentley, this can cause much worse issues that tend to be very costly.
Bentley maintenance services are important because they proactively check and replace worn parts before one of them fails and ruins your day. Services also tighten up and reconfigure aspects of your car ensuring that those parts last you much longer. In addition, the regular service is often a requirement to maintain your Bentley factory or third party warranty. Keeping records of doing maintenance is often crucial to avoid a denied warranty claim due to a lack of maintenance.

Bentley maintenance cost
The cost of your Bentley maintenance is based on the condition, age, and specific vehicle model. Simple service tasks such as changing the engine oil and oil filter, rotating tires, spark plug replacement and other maintenance can not only help keep your car performing at it’s best, but it can also help maximize fuel efficiency.
Common mechanical issues
If you notice that the front or rear end appears unusually low, this might be a sign of failing air suspension. Leaking air struts/springs are a common issue on the Bentley Continental GT/GTC and should be addressed shortly. As the issue progresses, it might result in a sudden complete failure where the suspension will drop completely. This might cause very dangerous situations e.g. if driving on the highway at 70mph… . Another common issue is blocked drains in the plenum chamber. They are checked as part of the maintenance service as leaves and debris block them over time. If not checked and cleaned, the water collects and may leak in the the front foot wells or the ventilation system and damage them. Or in the worst case it might damage the cars electronics and computers that are often located in this area.
