    For those of you that like the vantage, there is a poll on the Sill design that I added in the British section way down below... would like input.

    I have been eyeing the v8 vantage as well but have been told that they are not relatable and problematic... any truth to this?

    No. It is more reliable than the db9 and other astons. It has very few issues.

    There are some known issues, Aston even provides a guide to squeaks and rattles.

    He asked if the car was reliable. It is very reliable with a bulletproof engine.

    Every car has its quirks although issues can be managed or eliminated with an active owner.

    Squeaks and rattles don't factor into "reliable" to me. But happy to hear what you see as a acknowledged problem area on the cars that did not come from Doug Demuro's mouth. Thanks.

    I owned a Vantage V8, my problems which are pretty well known included, tensioners failing, gas cap not opening, dash cracking around screen, leather shrinkage, intermittent transmission errors (sport shift) and stalling, leaking tail lights. These are from memory and I'm sure there are more. Most of the Vantage issues are more quirks than reliability though.

    Those are good points and I wouldn't want to downplay them.

    I have had mine for 4 years now. Nothing but routine maintenance at the dealer. I had the navigation system gears fail, but that was an easy fix. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I have a 2013 7 speed paddle with 9K miles Im looking to sell. May not be exactly what you're currently looking for but it may interest you? Painted the wheels black, tinted the windows, changed stock pads to Porterfield, added Velocity AP lowering springs and also the velocity AP performance package with exhaust (http://www.velocityap.com/Aston-Martin-V8-Vantage-Power-Pack-Kit-Exhaust-Y-p/velamv8ppexhaust.htm). I haven't had any real issues except for leaking tail light but it was replaced under warranty and no more issues. Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login
    Still have all stock parts

    My garage is delayed another two months because of permitting issues with our county.

    I’m going to put the search on hold for now. I will likely pick up a 2009-2010 coupe stick in the future. Thanks for the interest. I will keep the group updated.

    Update:

    Found the perfect Vantage for me. Arriving Tuesday.

    2009 one owner coupe with 6k miles in meteorite over black. Sport pack and all options.

    Will be going after the fabspeed sport cats and x pipe for extra 40 hp/tq

    Could not be happier with the car.
