I recently took my Aston Martin on a road trip 1487 miles from Philadelphia to Charleston South Carolina and back with fresh fuel economy measurements I figured that now is as good as time as any to talk about what it costs to own a used Aston Martin so here's what you need to know first off the trip a lot of you thought this car wouldn't make it but make it it did through Delaware Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina all the way to Charleston and
00:32
then all the way back to 10-hour days of driving totaling 1487 miles now this is not the first roadtrip this car has taken work didn't have any problems you may remember the first road trip Oh so is this thing reliable well we'll get to that but first we're going to talk about fuel economy on this trip the Aston Martin covered one thousand three hundred and forty seven miles of highway driving and it burned through sixty six point seven to four gallons of gas for a
01:09
total fuel economy of twenty point one nine miles per gallon that isn't so bad especially when you consider that the EPA said that this car only does 19 miles per gallon on the highway now in the city this thing doesn't do quite so well I did a hundred and forty miles of city driving on this trip and I burn through ten point six three two gallons of gas which works out to thirteen point one nine miles per gallon not great but better than the EPA estimate once again
01:39
which was twelve miles per gallon in the city damn government can't do anything right time to update you on my warranty as you may remember it goes from bumper to bumper so here's the deal right after I got my car there was some thermostat issue that cost seven hundred and thirty eight dollars to fix not long after that the engines timing got out of sync and that repair cost the warranty four thousand four hundred and nine dollars a few weeks ago they fixed my doors for me because they wouldn't stay up and that cost three hundred and fifty one dollars
02:11
in other words the warranty that I shelled out thirty eight hundred dollars for when I bought the car has already paid out five thousand four hundred and ninety eight dollars in claims in the first five months and fifty two hundred miles of ownership but I don't want to make excuses for this car but when I bought it it had been sitting on a dealership lot for sale for seven months without being driven which is never a good thing for a car and every single problem I experienced came in the first month of ownership since then it has
02:42
been rock-solid so I like you I'm especially interested to find out what happens in the next six months of ownership so what does everything else cost well we'll start with the annual service which I just completed to the tune of $1400 out that has to be done every year or ten thousand miles whichever comes first the clutch costs forty nine hundred dollars to replace I know this because mine is brand new after I negotiated a deal to split the cost of a new clutch with the dealer who sold me the car now
03:14
that might sound like a lot of money but it's not completely out of the realm for a car like this I had a Porsche 911 Turbo a few years ago and a clutch replacement on that cost over $5,000 rear brakes cost the previous owner about $900 and I suspect it will cost me about $1,200 to do the front brake when it comes time in a couple of months insurance surprisingly isn't any more expensive than a normal car now I live in the city of Philadelphia where rates are astronomical so I'm not going to throw out a number because it'll seem really
03:44
high but for comparison's sake it doesn't cost me any more to insure my Aston Martin than my 10 year old Range Rover tires i had a puncture in one of my front tires earlier this year and replacing it cost me about $300 i'm glad it wasn't in one of the back tires which would have cost about 400 now my costs well I've already showed that fourteen hundred dollars for one annual service this year and then there was my half of the clutch which was $2,500 brings us up to 3900 I think I'm going to have to do one more annual service this year plus I'm probably going to have to replace
04:15
the front brakes at some point which means it'll probably cost me about $6,500 to drive this car 20,000 miles and that doesn't include all of the warranty costs or the depreciation or the insurance or the fuel in other words just because you can afford to buy a $48,000 used Aston Martin doesn't mean you can afford to own one
