The new web portal is an outgrowth of Bentley's efforts to ensure that the value of customers' Crewe-built vehicles are maintained by using only genuine replacement parts. It is but one example of the company's commitment to providing customers of Crewe-built vehicles the very best ownership experience, even long after the initial sale.

"The launch of our new Crewe Genuine Parts website is a true milestone in our customer satisfaction efforts," said Carol Glynn, General Manager of Aftersales, Bentley Motors, Inc. "Since more than 75 percent of Crewe-built Bentley's and Rolls-Royces are still on the road today, there continues to be an active customer base in search of genuine replacement parts."

Each part comes with a comprehensive warranty that covers replacement of defective components for 12 months if fitted outside Bentley's dealer network, or a full three years if fitted at one of the company's 40 retail outlets in North America.

"But Crewe Genuine Parts is not just any parts supplier because Crewe-built Bentley's and Rolls-Royce's are not your typical automobiles. We're proud to be able to supply our customers with 50-plus years of replacement parts befitting of their handcrafted automobile."
