Rolls-Royce Motor Cars


Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph Years: 1999
Rolls-Royce Bentley Arnage Years: 1999

Number Involved: 639
Dates of Manufacture: January 1998 - May 1999
Defect: On certain passenger vehicles, the thermostat regulating the temperature of the heated seats was incorrectly positioned during assembly. This incorrect positioning creates potential for the surface of the heated seat to reach unacceptably high temperatures. In extreme cases, this could damage objects in contact with the seat cushion.
Remedy: Dealers will install an additional temperature control for each seat equipped with heating elements. Owner notification was expected to begin during July 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Rolls-Royce at 1-248-340-5000.
