Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Bentley Continental GT coupe?
Check the expensive-to-repair bodywork for any scuffs picked up in city-centre car parks and look at the alloy wheels for any signs of kerb damage. The Conti is loaded with electrical goodies, so make sure they all work as they should.
What are the most common problems with a used Bentley Continental GT coupe?
Work on the engine is expensive because, for major jobs, the engine has to come out. Luckily, reported problems are few. The ZF transmission is reliable, too. Some issues have been reported involving electrical failures caused by problems with the wiring looms.
Is a used Bentley Continental GT coupe reliable?
Data is difficult to compile on the Conti despite the car having been around for many years. On the whole, owners report that this solidly constructed car has a good reputation for reliability. The only reported problems lie in the actual cost of the parts, rather than the issue of breaking down. Bentley as a brand has a more mixed reputation, although recent surveys seem to have shown an improvement in this respect.
