Car review site rounds up over 140 reviews by Aston Martin owners and find true car love but, like any unfaithful lover, many have to be dumped.

Aston Martin owners love their cars. Comments submitted by owners on the UK's biggest car review site show how much love there is:

  2. "A car with amazing presence and a real head turner. An understated modern classic"
  3. "Fantastic car far better than the Ferrari 355 I owned before it"
  4. "One of the greatest marques in the world to drive"
  5. "A real head turner where ever you go" 
  6. "The looks of the car are fantastic and always get the respect of other road users"
  7. "A car I always dreamed of owning"
  8. "This is simply the best value ''super car'' on the market"
  9. "The sound of the engine is awesome"

Whilst the compliments flow, so do the criticisms which seem to dawn on Aston Marin owners over time:

Aston Martin Breaks their Hearts

Aston Martin shot of a wheel
  1. "My experience was disappointing due to huge annual servicing costs even though I only did 1500 miles/year"
  2. "Wish the blue tooth connectivity was better with the telephone as pretty hopeless"
  3. "The only downs are the servicing costs which appear to be rather high from Aston dealerships!"
  4. "Spares prices are ridiculous. They obviously take the view that if you drive one their cars you can afford to be fleeced"
  5. "Not as exciting as expected. Very high running costs, especially servicing intervals and costs"
  6. "Fuel economy is around 22 mpg if you are careful and a lot lower if your not!!"
  7. "It lets itself down with daft things like warning lights coming on and the ABS going off for no reason"
  8. "Very expensive to repair when problems occur and, believe me, they will"
  9. "I find the gearbox a little agricultural"
  10. "it's c**p"
One owner said his car was, "pre owned by Sir Elton John".  Maybe only the deeper pockets of someone like Sir Elton can afford to love a car like the Aston Martin. has over 130,960 owner reviews covering all makes and models in the UK.
