Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Engine sound / Look
Cons: Trunk Lid / Unreadable letters displayed on dash and audio system
Advice: buy it. you will not regretTook deivery as a 2nd owner but with only 1500 miles on the odometer.People can't stop looking at the car.It is an excellent sport car with luxury feels. Linn Auduio system is kind of mismatched for a $170k car. It is not up to high-end standard. I also own a Bentley Flying Spur and it has the same low quality audio system for an expensive car. Hope Aston will listen to this comment. Trunk lid is inconvenient to open with no place to hold. Aston should of designed the trunk lid with automatic lift and close like Bentley or other low price automobile on current market. Overall, It is a good car since it is exclusive and beautiful.
Pros: Exhaust sound at full blast
Cons: sun on dash
Advice: as Bond said 'surely your're jesting?'Took delivery two weeks ago in Detroit. Weather permitting drove 8 days. Have owned numerous high end sportscars, but this is wild. Ferraris stop to look. Had one 70 degree day (yes in March) top down drew literally too many inquiries and looks. Performance is fabulous for a touring car. Exhast note is on the level of the Detroit Symphony in high gear. Tremendous torque and solid smooth shifts. Took three trips to adjust my body to interior but I am a big guy. Top works very well. No trunk space for clubs but who cares, I keep em at Orchard Lake CC. Gauges great but hard to read in sun with top down. Home Run!!! a definite over 50 James Bond machine. Bully! for the Brits!! I hate driving it because I don't get to look at its beautiful lines from outside. Not since my 65 XKE have I owned such a beautiful car.
Pros: GO GO GO - without the Ferrari flashy look. Aston Martin is epitome of style.
Cons: Need to be double jointed to get in and out - more difficult than even a Lambo.
Advice: If you can afford one - enjoy it and be proud they are very rare on US roads.Looks fantastic, drives fantastic, sounds fantastic (especially with the factory sports muffler). Comfort is marginal; very low roofline would make you think car is designed for a shorter person both to get in and out of the car, and interior ceiling height. However, pedal placement is far back and is a stretch for the shorter person. Rear seat leg room is not intended for humans it would seem.
Pros: The Steering handles like a dream
Advice: GET THIS IT RULESAwesome
