2005 Bentley Continental GT 2dr Coupe (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Phenomenal looking car. Love driving it, but I don't often because it lives in the shop. The 2005 has evil electrical gremlins! I got it in December 2014 with 14,800 miles. Two previous owners. First owner had it 8 years and managed to put only 4500 miles on it. Second owner had it two years and put 9500 miles on it. I put 4000 miles on it over about 2 1/2 months. Then it just died..literally. the engine just shut down at a stop sign. Had to disconnect the battery cables to recycle the electrical system. I noticed on the service records that owner number one had a similar issue the first year of ownership. I parked it for several months then drove it to my independent guy (where it died at a stop light 1/2 mile from the shop). All my sensor lights came on, Windows only rolled half way up. It was a mess. Been with my independent for 4 months (he's good, but ridiculously slow). He believes it's a module board because he can hear relays clicking off and on in the battery compartment. Love the looks, head Turner of a car but seriously thinking about dumping it when I get it back. Too unreliable....

Review

NEVER BUY USED - Bought a 05 and everything from Air Struts ($1350 each X 4 plus labor ) Rear Brake Window light, Plastic Vacuum Line ( PLASTIC IN A $250,000 car??? with engine temperature like it has??????? )

Looks great and drives great - When it is running - To much to fix when they are used. -

High yearly Cost
High Maintenance Cost

FIND INDEPENDENT MECHANIC - Unless you have MILLIONS -

Just looks good in the Driveway - Prefer Vintage Rolls Royce - Much more reliable -

CAR FOR SALE - Low Miles ( 44000 - coz its usually lives in the shop LOL ) Beautiful Green with Beluga beige interior - 21' Bentley Tires'Rims - All Service records - AND THERE ARE LOTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -- make offer - - Can be yours for a Steal of a price -

Review

Beautiful car that turns heads. Cost of ownership is very expensive. I have spent over $70,000.00 since I bought the car new in 2005. The repair cost doesn't count the items that needed repaired that were under warranty. This is my first and last Bentley GT

Review

The car handles great and has plenty of power. The interior could be a little better thought out, but only a minor issue. Reliability is a huge problem. There is an electrical bug somewhere in this car and the Bentley service has been poor at best. The car has been in the shop at least 5 times in the last year, and it is still not right. Dealing with the problems has taken all the fun out of this car.


Best Features

The ride on this car is exceptional. Handles well and is very quiet.


Worst Features

Fix the electronics and make the car more reliable. The RDS chip caused all kinds of problems.

Review

I am a 60 year old maried businesman. We also own a 2006 Jaguar VP and 2004 Mercedes S500. I cannot drive this vehicle without someone giving me the thumbs up. This vehicle is the ultimate driving experience.


Best Features

The cockpit.


Worst Features

Make the mirrors automatically close when locking the vehicle.
