Rip-roaring V12; good ride and sophisticated suspension; nicely executed Volante convertible; handsome looks and exotic appeal

Model Highlights

The DB9 remains offered in coupe and convertible (Volante) forms. With the Volante, a little trunk space is sacrificed and refinement for a well-insulated soft top that can tuck itself away in about 17 seconds.

In either case, the DB9's 470-horsepower, 5.9L V12 engine does not disappoint--especially considering its soundtrack. The engine produces up to 443 pound-feet of torque and is hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed manual gearbox--both of which include a limited-slip differential. Aston Martin claims a top speed of 190 mph, and a 0-60-mph time of 4.6 seconds with the manual transmission. Automatic versions include magnesium paddle-shifters.

The DB9 manages to have a forgiving, smooth, and surprisingly comfortable ride, thanks to an adaptive damping system (with a separate performance-oriented Sport Mode) and specially tuned suspension bushings, in addition to the aluminum double-wishbone suspension layout in front and in back. Z-rated performance tires on 19-inch wheels are standard, and a speed-sensitive hydraulic power-steering system provides confidence whether in the parking garage or at triple-digit speeds. And strong stopping power is included in all DB9s, with ventilated discs on all four wheels plus four-piston calipers.

The cabin is trimmed in hand-stitched leather, with real wood or metal as well, while the center console itself is constructed in zinc. A new Bang & Olufsen sound system is available, and Bluetooth connectivity is included.

Other interior appointments include satellite radio, a hard-disk-based navigation system, heated seats, rear parking sensors, and automatic climate control. The Volante model includes an automatically deployable roll-bar system for rollover protection.

Customization is a key part of ownership for cars such as the DB9. A wide range of interior wood trims are offered, including mahogany, bamboo and Tamo Ash woodgrains, or Piano Black or bright-finish schemes. There are also showier graphite-finish wheels on offer.

Model News

The Aston Martin DB9 got a significant refresh for 2009, with more power, revised styling, and a bolstered feature list. For 2011, it gets a few more minor updates--most notably a new adaptive damping system with Sport Mode, and available Bang & Olufsen audio, plus new 20-spoke alloy wheels.

Value Writeup

The Aston Martin DB9 is a relatively rare sight, and that rarity, as well as its steeper price, makes it a step more exotic than a Mercedes-Benz SL or the Audi R8, and in the same realm as the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Ferrari California.

With an emphasis on well-rounded performance plus long-distance travel potential, it's more an exotic grand-tourer than an all-out sports car.

But as with most exotic cars, it's probably the sexy shape that counts most (the DB9 has it), followed closely by a sporty, exotic powertrain--and for that, the DB9's 470-horsepower, V12 also counts. Compared to a number of other edgy supercars, the DB9 offers a little more comfort--thanks to sophistication and fine-tuning, not outright softness.

Recall Information


Mfg's Report Date:
December 11, 2017


Potential Number Of Units Affected:

Aston Martin The Americas (Aston Martin) is recalling certain 2009-2016 DB9, 2009-2012 DBS, 2010-2015 Rapide, 2012 Virage, and 2014 Vanquish vehicles equipped with a 6-Speed Touchtronic II Automatic Transmission. A communication error between the Engine Control Module (ECM) and the Transmission Control Module (TCM) can cause the transmission park pawl to not engage.

If the park pawl does not engage and the vehicle is stopped on a slope and exited without the parking brake being applied, the vehicle may unexpectedly roll, increasing the risk of a crash.

Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will update the TCM software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 1, 2018. Owners may contact Aston Martin customer service at 1-888-923-9988. Aston Martin's number for this recall is RA-07-0028.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
