Powerful Experience by C from Seattle on 12/07/2013. Trim: 2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe, Owned 5 years.
1
Pros: The longer I own this beautiful motorcar, the more I love it. As Keats wrote, "a thing of beauty is a joy forever." The appearance is aging gracefully- those simple classic lines and proportions look better every year while contemporary Italian, German, and American competitors look stale. The quality of the materials, finish, and engineering is exceptional - the car is rock solid with no nasty plastic bits to become brittle and fall off. Most of all, the driving experience is 100% delightful and never fails to make me smile - every element is designed to touch the senses and feel (and sound, smell, look...) wonderful.
Cons: It's expensive, it isn't especially economical, and the Aston's balance, sensuous feel, great sounds, and exciting experience took precedence over producing a few tenths of a second here and there on the track. That said, do you want to be the guy at the party talking about the numbers a test driver got with your car in a magazine - or would you like to have the car that feels better to drive and that everyone at the party wants to ride in? Oh, and get the manual - not the semi-automatic Sportshift which ruins the car.
Overall review: Owning an Aston Martin, at least this one, is a dream come true that's actually better than you expect - a rare thing in life.. It's not for everyone: If you're the kind of person who likes to brag about numbers, you won't understand the Aston. If you're dream car is filled with gadgets and covered from head to toe with flashy wings and scopes then this isn't for you. But if you understand and appreciate the Aston's exquisite poise, quality, feel, and design, then this modern interpretation of the classic Aston Martin formula will make you very happy.

Aston Martin N400 by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/10/2008. Trim: 2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster, Owned less than 1 year.
1
Pros: I recently bought a N400 and love it. I also own a GT-3RS Porsche and the Aston is a perfect car for long trips that I just did in NAPA 2400 miles that were great. It gets lots of looks and it handles great!
Cons: Transmission downshifting is strange at times, it searches for lower gears in the automatic mode. It could use a little more Horsepower.
Overall review: Love the car!

Greatest Car Ever by Kitkat from England on 07/20/2008. Trim: 2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: I love the style of this vehicle! And it drives wonderfully. It gets better gas milliage than a Bentley does too. I like that you can get an ipod doc. in the car too. Very useful. The seats are wonderful. Great power and can go pretty fast. All in all i would recomend this to anyone!
Cons: Well its kinda expensive (worth it), And it doesn't have the best gas milliage (what sports cars do?). But other than that I love it!!!!
Overall review: Great, I love everything except the gas price and the price of the car itself! Comftorable seats, nice design, great drive, and definatly easy to handle! Totally recomend it!
