What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Aston is a quintessentially British brand, and the DB9 looks stunning and sounds great

Against It's more a GT than a sports car, and there are reliability and build-quality problems

Verdict It looks fabulous and sounds fantastic, but the DB9 could be better to drive

Go for… DB9

Avoid… Not applicable

Aston Martin DB9 Coupe
  • 1. Check the tyres for wear: if it's excessive, it could be a sign of a fault in the suspension
  • 2. Boot space is small - just about big enough for a set of golf clubs
  • 3. Rear seats are barely adequate for children, even on short journeys
  • 4. Check the fit and finish in the cabin: some owners have complained about it
  • 5. V12 engine requires careful, and costly, maintenance to keep it in tip-top condition
