2007 Bentley Continental GT User Reviews
- Not Available
- Class, style and unique
- None I can think of
My experience with this car has been unreal. Best overall high end car, it's not even close, and I've driven or owned most of them. Power and ride, leather, feel etc all 1st class and unmatched. Not one shortcoming I can think of, except maybe Ive had 2 GT's and neither had back up camera. Oh well. Penthouse on wheels one review said. True, and get one if you're able. No regrets....read morehide

- comfortable to drive
- always breaks down
i had a 2006 bentley gt that was at the dealer 30 times in 1 year for service. would have been more times but i insisted they keep it till everything was fixed properly so they had it for a month. i go it back and it broke down the next day. mostly electric problems but the engine needed major work 3 times. it is a shame because i really like the car so i got a new one. the dealer said my car was not the norm. my new car arrived about 2 months ago. A brand new 2007 GT. the engine is fine but the nav system doesn't work, the automatic seat presets don't work, and the automatic trunk close doesn't work. i am also having trouble with the computer consol not coming on when the car stars. i then restart it and it works. i called bentleys customer satisfaction people and they could care less. Bentley should be ashamed to produce such an unreliable car.
the plus side is that it looks and rides great.
don't buy it. it looks great in the showroom but you will regret it....read morehide

- hot car gets a ton of looks.
- drive it anywhere but the city and no one knows what it is
i HAVE A 2006 IT LITERALLY BREAKS DOWN ALL OF THE TIME. THE ELECTRONICS ARE AWFUL. I HAVE HAD IT OUT OF THE SHOP FOR ONE WEEKEND INN THE LAST MONTH AND I GOT STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE 300 MILES FROM THE CLOSEST DEALER. I WAS TOTALLY SCREWED AND THIS HAS BEEN THE NORM WITH THE CAR. MY FRIEND JUST BOUGHT A 2007 GTC AND IT IS IN THE SHOP RIGHT NOW A WEEK AFTER DELIVERY....... ON A GOOD NOTE IT IS THE COOLEST CAR I HAVE HAD VERY FAST... VERY HEAVY (6100 LBS!)SO DOES NOT STOP QUICKLY. i AM A GLUTTEN FOR PUNISHMENT SO I AM SHOPPING FOR A NEW ONE RIGHT NOW. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WARENTEE OR YOU ARE SCREWED DUDE.
ONE MORE THING FOR ABOUT $8,000 INSTALLED YOU CAN GET A NEW ECU UNIT AND IT WILL BRING THE HP UP TO 700 AND WILL GO WELL OVER 200 MPH AS IF IT IS NOT FAST ENOUGH ALREADY...read morehide

- paint-paint-paint customer service
my friend actually "bought" the gt
i advised her to lease it
she is smarter than me
obviously, she drives a gt
i drive a srx
within days after she got the car
she, being anal about caring for
her cars noticed discoloration of
the paint on the hood and top
the car is garaged and covered
never in the rain or wind (los angeles)
and when in doubt she takes her mother's
taking it to the dealer, they, of course,
dug in the trenches and blamed it on her
calling the discoloration, water spots
strange though they can't remove the water spots
and they are getting more obvious
180,000.00 for an automobile that the
dealer won't admit they have a problem
i wonder if the rep would have been so
"tough" if a man had taken the car in
with the problem
it's a great looking car
too bad the customer service is still
acting with caveman mentality...read morehide

- No trim specified for this review
- Ultimate strip car
- Not a true sports-car
The only thing that makes this a sports-car is the fact that it will get you where you need to go in a hurry. It doesn't take a corner very well at all, so this is not the car you want to take on a twisty-road , at high speeds.
However, if you ignore the fact that it's handling-ability is below average for this class, and think more of this as just a Luxury...that goes REALLY fast, then you can't go wrong!
Biggest problem: Sometimes it takes a moment to get going while in the city.....however, it is a relatively smooth take-off, and your passangers will be happy about that.
When in "sport"....everything gets stiffer, and you can 'jump' off the start-line, but the handling is no better.
The navigation system works well, and is easy to manipulate. The rear console is nice for passengers, and the ride is so smooth we ran over pot-holes on I-75 going into Detroit, and barely felt them.
Overall, this car has it all..... The only real problem is that they need a new classification: Super-Luxury. ;)
BTW..... Also the fact that the GT is 30K cheaper than the Spur is nice (although you make-up for it with the optionals)...read morehide

- Very smooth ride, nice looking, and great handling. It also has a really nice interior.
- makes a lot of noise if you go fast
overall good car, but i am not sure it is worth the price. its handling it smooth and brakes work well but it makes noise sometimes if you go fast.
