    Beautiful... And Always Had A Problem... Like A Beautiful Woman — Amazing Engine Sound.. and Beautiful... Just beautiful... Unfortunately.. you can tell Aston Martin is owned (was) by Ford... Build quality Appalling for a 117k EUR car. I had problems with central locking, trim coming off.. but wind the window down and open the throttle... you forget the rest... I havent tried the paddle shift though.. this was a manual..

    Pros: Engine note..

    Cons: Built by Ford

    Aston "s80" Martin — Always wanted an Aston, always wanted to drive an Aston and used to hate people saying it was a Mondeo because of the window switches. I have now driven a few and they are true drivers cars. The sound is so fast as any speed. Not too sure about the use of the Volvo interior, he climate control, the CD player, the Satnav, same as a lot of the Volvo range. The killed it for me. Still a great car but made cheap. Dont believe me, try an Volvo S80 and compare dashes.

    Pros: Great looks, great sound, babe magnet

    Cons: Volvo dashboard.

    It's An Aston Martin ... Not The Best Car In The World, And Yet, Somehow ... It Wins Your Heart. — It was the worst car I drove that day and I want it to be straightforward: don't buy it, no matter how rich and/or tempted you might be, avoid it! Yes, it is one of the most gorgeous piece of design ever, both outside and inside, and those doors opening with 13° of angle ... wonderful! Oh, and that sound ... when you hammer it, it roars so nicely that it becomes an addiction. You're driving normally (i.e above the nonsense that are the speed limits) but ... you can't resist, so you shift down for no reason except to hear that music. There are gonna be a few problems with that. First, this car couldn't keep up with the Ferrari, the Lamborghini ... or the Corvette! Second, the gearbox is just utter rubbish! It almost made me regret the one I had in the 206, and that's saying something! The guy told me "it's manly", to which I answered "and what's that supposed to mean for Aston: impossible to use?" Ok, I'm not Mister Universe, but I swear that when I wanted to shift for the 1st time between 2nd and 3rd, I thought I would have to use both hands to move the gear lever! There's eventually a third issue: we had the window slightly open ... but the whole wooden dashboard was vibrating like a mad cow, not very convincing for a car of this price! Really, I didn't like it. But then I did. Because, c'mon, it's an Aston Martin and it's cool. Just don't buy it. Really.

    Pros: It's an Aston Martin. And it sounds amazingly gooood!

    Cons: It's not that fast, the gearbox is hopeless, and the quality feeling is not brilliant.

    Aston Martin By Costas64

    Not more to say. Althought I drove it more abroad than in Greece I cannot say that I enjoyed as much as the Boxster. It has class thought and it gives you a flavor of a James Bond movie. o.k. Read More
