How often is the centre rear seat of a Bentley Continental Flying Spur full? One would think rarely. However, were a frontal impact occur whilst the Flying Spur was carrying a passenger in the centre rear seat, it sounds as though NHTSA believes their head will reach halfway to the front seat. Which is, by the way, a very great distance.
“There is the potential for the center rear seat belt upper guide bracket to distort in the event of a frontal impact. This distortion could result in the centre rear seat occupant traveling further forwards than the design intends.”
27 incarnations of the 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur and Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed will undergo a replacement of the seat belt guide bracket.
