Review of the 2003 Bentley Arnage

  • A surprisingly nimble and powerful touring sedan, the Arnage is the very definition of automotive exclusivity.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Gobs of power, living roomlike interior, exclusive style.

  • Cons

    Price, poor fuel economy, image of crass consumption.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Arnage revised several changes for 2003; outside, there are new front and rear bumpers, redesigned tailpipes, slightly revised side sills and a reduced amount of chrome. Inside, changes consist of new diamond-pattern upholstery (on the "T" versions), white-on-black gauges and an optional aluminum-trimmed dash. The extended-wheelbase Arnage RL is also new for 2003. Mechanical enhancements include a stiffer body, a revised suspension offering firmer springs and an upgraded stability control system.

Vehicle: 2003 Bentley Arnage T 4dr Sedan (6.8L 8cyl Turbo 4A)

BENTLEY ARNAGE T IS NOT FOR SISSYS. THE TWIN TURBO EFFECT GIVES MASSIVE ACCELERATION AT ANY SPEED. THE BRAKES ON THIS 6000 PLUS LB CAR ARE ALMOST ADEQUATE. IF YOU OWN ONE YOU WILL GET TO KNOW YOUR DEALER VERY WELL.I BOUGHT MINE WITH 9500 MILES ON IT AS A FACTORY DEMO,AT 12500 ALL FOUR TIRES WERE REPLACED AND ONE WHEEL. NAVIGATION SYSTEM WORKS 25% OF THE TIME,FALSE WARNINGS ON HYDROLIC SYSTEM & BRAKE PADS ARE A CONTINUING ANNOYANCE.THE ARNAGE T IS EXCITING TO DRIVE BUT MY GUESS THE REAL EXCITEMENT STARTS WHEN THE WARRANTY STOPS. THE FIRST DEALER QUOTE ON REPLACING ONE TIRE WAS $700.

This Car is so great. The only setback to it is the horrible fuel economy. It is way worse than my Ford Explorer was.
