August 4, 1999
Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph
Rolls-Royce Bentley Arnage Years: 1999
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.
