I've had the car for three and a quarter years now, and I've had essentially no problems after the first six months of teething pains and software issues. I find my car to be completely reliable. I've never had a mechanical, safety or performance issue to deal with.

Thats awesome... If you don't mind me asking. I know vins have nothing to do with problems or not. But are you early or later vin?

1158. I was an early order but due to the EcoSport leather interior and then later the Deep Ocean color got it pushed on the production schedule so mine was made middle of the pack.

OK - if an Escalade is faster 0-60 than our Karmas I guess they are slow!

All I know is, that without feeling at all like I'm making the Karma accelerate hard ... I seem to be out in front of most cars when we're lined up at a stoplight. I think the Karma does great 0-45. And, that's most of my driving.

That has been my experience also. The power delivery by the electric motors is so quick that unless you are sitting at red light with a MBZ SLS or a McLaren, you can generally get ahead or at least keep pace.

You do pay pay the price on the high end, around 70 MPH, where the delivery curve flattens out and it takes a lot of effort to go faster and the other cars start to pass you.

I have seen the shocked and confused faces of many Mustang, Camaro, and Corvette drivers in my rear view mirror after they see a large and absolutely silent car jump ahead of their noisy and shouty cars at a red light or a highway on ramp. ALso, people who drive the really fast cars, Prosches, R8s, Ferraris, etc., generally slow down to admire the Fisker, so you can pass them while they are gawking.
