    The Most Unreliable Car I Have Ever Owned!!!!! — Midnight Blue with Cream Leather and Mahogany wood dashboard. Fantastic sound system - The 6 Litre V12 Engine

    Pros: Performance. Styling

    Cons: Poor reliability

    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. Had to replace ignition coils which was quite pricey. Apparently, a know problem in the original engines. So far so good with the new coils.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.

    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: 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

    Even after 11 years after being introduced to the market, the DB9 continues to look as modern as the day it rolled off the line in England. Hand built, V12 power...nothing short of amazing car.
