Aston Martin Vanquish Reliability?

I would like to hear from current or past owners about their experience owning Aston Martin Vanquish 2014 to 2016 model?

Please share your experience about how reliable is the car? Easy to drive as daily driver? Fun? Anything else?

I am thinking to get a lightly used 2015-2016 car and would really appreciate your feedback.

I own a 2014 Vanquish and it has been rock solid. The car is a pleasure to drive. The acceleration is not what you get in an MP4, 650 or 675 but it is a very enjoyable car. I bought the car used from Galpin.

Thanks for the response. I really like the Vanquish look.

I am looking at DB11 and Vanquish but I feel like Vanquish is a better looking car and more special Aston! I hope the used Vanquish which trades at around 150-180k (2014-2015) will somewhat keep the value and drop like a vantage which can be purchased for 40k today.

You should also check the trunk (boot) space. I can get two golf bags in my Vanquish!

Test drove the Vanquish few days ago. My thoughts below.

What I loved about it:
NA V12 with phenomenal exhaust noise
Lots of carbon
Rear trunk and the spoiler is one piece - absolutely gorgeous!
Comfortable ride

Not so much:
Sluggish tranny, manual shifting felt weird
Navi menu - let's pretend its not there lol
It looks faster than it really is


Do you guys think it will continue to depreciate even below DBS? DBS's are trading now around 100k-140k not dropping more than that.

Yes, I think the latest generation Vanquish will follow a similar depreciation path as the generation 1 cars from 2001-2007 or the Vanquish S from 2004-2007, or the DBS 12 from 2008-2012. I'm not sure what one would expect any differently. There are DBS cars from that generation selling under $100K, so I don't think you are yet at the bottom there, and the standard Vanquish from 2001-2005 is in the $45-$75K range now, so I would argue they have fallen at least much and maybe more than the V8 Vantages you mention selling at $40K.

I would expect a 2015 Vanquish to be worth 50% of its MSRP in 2020 (roughly $150K), and 35% of its MSRP in 2025 (roughly $100K), and bottom out at 25% of its MSRP (roughly $75K) in 2030 when it is 15 years old. At which point I think they float in value for 10 years and start to become more valuable at age 25-30.

What year Vanquish did you drive. They made a transmission change in I think the 2015 or 2016 model. The new 8 speed is a lot quicker.
