From my experience, it seems that there are several different types of autos when it gets boiled down. That would be the following:

1) Perfectly engineered masterpieces — these vehicles are incredible feats of achievement as virtually nothing is wrong from the factory, there's just one problem: they're a bit clinical.

2) Vehicles with quirks — these autos are fun "in their own way" but will be shipped to customers with oddities or as we like to say "quirks." These can be some of the most fun but a major pain in the ass to deal with.

3) Disasters — I think this is pretty self explanatory. These are autos that are shipped from the manufacturer and there are known issues and they will make your existence a living hell. Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

That said, WHICH would you rather have? Assuming no one wants a disaster, would you rather have the perfectly engineered product or a quirky one?

Doug DeMuro is a writer who recently added an Aston Martin V8 Vantage to his fleet. Anything of the British persuasion is known to be riddled with oddities. The Aston is no different. See some examples, below.

Here are some of the odd quirks of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. (Doug DeMuro)

WHO'd You Rather? Would You Want A PERFECTLY Engineered Auto From The Factory OR One With Quirks?
