Model Highlights

The 2011 Aston Martin is offered either in coupe form or as a DBS Volante convertible--which comes with a power fabric top capable of stowing away in just 14 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Both versions feature a mammoth 5.9L V12, making 510 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, and capable of reaching 190 mph, or of getting to 60 mph in just over four seconds.

Buyers have a choice between a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, with the latter including steering-wheel paddle-shifters, as well as a Sport Mode. All models include an adaptive damping system that allows crisp handling when it's wanted, while still permitting a reasonably comfortable ride over choppy pavement.

Likewise, the DBS Volante's voice seems to have a dual personality. During gentle driving, it's not much louder than other luxury coupes, but revving the engine above 4,000 rpm opens a bypass to bring out the V12's sonorous call.

Underpinnings are manufactured mostly of aluminum, magnesium and carbon fiber (with all-carbon-fiber hood, fenders, and trunk lid), allowing the DBS to weigh less than 4,000 pounds--even in Volante form. Carbon-ceramic matrix brakes are also standard; they're not only lighter than conventional brakes but have shorter braking distances and more resistance to fade.

The DBS has a 2+2 layout, with the rear seats barely more than small shelves. Coupes have just enough trunk space for a light weekend away, but convertibles are more limited.

In either case, it comes with HID headlamps, LED taillights and standard 20-inch diamond-turned alloy wheels; interior trim includes full-grain leather, matrix alloy and Iridium Silver interior surrounds and trim and carbon-fiber door pulls.

Interior appointments include Bang & Olufsen sound--with 13 speakers, iPod and USB connectivity and a compensation system for wind noise in the Volante--plus a hard-drive-based navigation system, heated seats, power-folding side mirrors, various wood and leather trim upgrades and serious motorsports extras like racing seats.

Volante versions of the DBS include a deployable roll-bar system that, in anticipation of a rollover, helps protect occupants.

Value Writeup

If the Aston Martin DB9 or V8 Vantage isn't quite rare enough, the Aston DBS should almost provide the requisite exclusivity. Competing with the likes of the Ferrari 599 GTB or Lamborghini Aventador--but with a little more ride comfort, and a somewhat more lavishly finished cabin--the DBS can approach the $300,000 mark if optioned properly.

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.
