Overall reliability

Worst car I have ever owned.

I bought my example as l have always admired RR and I had a beautiful, reliable S1 Bentley.
Oh dear, what a mistake. It broke down on nearly every occasion I drove it. It also came in for abuse from every lout in a souped up Ford Fiesta! The radiator started leaking, the suspension pumped up and had to be returned to the dealer to be lowered. A half shaft broke, the front bearings crumbled, the throttle jammed etc etc. Then the rust started to eat the wheel arches. Thank heavens I now run Mercedes!
I accept i probably bought a poor example but we are talking Rolls-Royces here and i paid over the odds for it from a reputable RR dealership.
My Bentley soldiered for another 13 years and is still doing sterling service with a wedding car firm.
