Pros

The styling. Nobody seems to hate them, unlike when you drive a Ferrari or Porsche

Cons

The back seats are not usable by a person of any size (inc babies) and maintenance costs are criminal

Db9 - No Other Car Is This Cool — Being a handbuilt V12, its never going to be the cheapest car to run. But the uber cool styling, great balance and noise puts a grin on my face every time. My car has now racked up 70k miles. In the last 1,000 miles I owned the car, it developed many problems: front end rattles, check engine light, emissions service required error, intermittent misfires, blowing black smoke at startup. The gearbox got very notchy and clunky.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

One of the most beautiful car in the last decade.  The best sounding vehicle when in a hurry. The growl is intoxicating!!! Easy to get round even in traffic!

Cons

Back seat is a joke, should just be a shelf.  Indicator stalks plastic is cheap and does not befit a $200K car. Reliability question mark.

Intoxicating — Great presence on the road. Plenty of torque and definitely needs the traction control on. Great exhaust note from the V12. Early gremlins is the dodgy tire sensors. Cheap plastics on steering wheel stalks and handle to tilt seat forward. Signs of plastics needing to be reglued :) Interiors is generally luxurious with wall to wall leather/suede. Simple electrics. Crappy sound system (but who listens to music when you have such a great exhaust note). Service history suggest maintenance not too horrific yet, but a big question mark as it age. Easy to live with auto transmission. A true GT with comfort and performance.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
