WASHINGTON (April 20)—Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is recalling 330 Bentley Arnage Red Label luxury cars, model years 2000 and 2001. Some of the vehicles, manufactured between June 2000 and January 2001, have ·improperly manufacturedÃ¶ fuel feed and return hoses, according to Rolls-Royce. In particular, the position of the crimp securing the rubber hose material to the steel quick release connection may be improper, causing fuel leakage and possible engine fires. Rolls-Royce/Bentley dealers will replace the hoses free of charge. The British auto maker has not yet provided the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with an owner notification schedule, according to NHTSA's latest recall list.
