A used Aston is not really a good idea for a few reasons,but that could apply to any real high end used car.

Very few sold in Canada and only one dealer in Ontario which means that parts will be crazy expensive and hard to get.One thing to remember is that you are buying parts for a $250000 car not a $80000 one.With virtually all new cars getting major service outside the dealer network is virtually impossable because of the specalized service tools that are required especially in Electronics.Even at our Ford store we get a lot of business from independent shops sending newer vehicles over for diagnosis because they lack the specialized equipment to do that.
The last Aston that I drove was a DB7 and I was not very impressed with the driving experiance but I am sure the DB9 is a lot better.
