Some cars barely have time to leave dealerships before they’re recalled for various small issues. That’s the case this week with Bentley‘s ultra-posh Bentayga SUV.

Bentley issued a recall covering 378 examples of the 2017 Bentayga. The affected vehicles have build dates between March 1 and September 30, 2016.

That’s not every Bentayga in the US, but it’s close — according to Good Car Bad Car, Bentley’s pushed out 505 of these bad boys between August and October.

The issue relates to the assembly process. Seat mechanism and instrument panel joints may not have been properly tightened. If they’re loose, vehicle vibrations can loosen the parts even further. A loose seat or instrument panel part can create a big ol’ safety hazard, hence the recall.

There’s no need to wait around for parts, thankfully. Upon receiving their recall notice, affected Bentayga owners can head to the dealership, where technicians will tighten the bolts in question, solving the problem. The recall is expected to begin this month — although, why wouldn’t it? Did Bentley dealerships lose all their wrenches?
