The stress nearly sent me mad
No less than 53 claims on the warranty over the three years from first build.
Problems during that time included replacing 7 plastic coolant tanks that had cracked, faulty air con, back parcel shelf that disintegrated of it's own accord, bits falling off everywhere..
Broke down in France on a long road trip back to the UK - issues with fuel evaporation. The Aston Martin break down service turned out to be sub contracted to another firm who damaged the car when bringing back to the UK. Thousands worth of body work damage that Aston Martin Customer Service tried to blame me for.
As soon as the warranty ran out, the car was losing oil and was told I would need a new engine as a cost of 18,000. Lawyers were involved and we came to a compromise. Fell seriously out of love with the car and sold it to a dealer after putting in a new engine at a deflated price.
Handles well and very fast - cabin very tight and plastic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
