Between myself and the prior owner, the car has required over $16k in repairs (tires, battery, misc.). I have had the car for about two months and I had to have the engine pulled and something replaced (too technical for me and the bill is at home). The costs ran to $4,000, but Fisker covered about $2,800 of the repair costs.

I knew when I bought the car that I would have repair costs and have a budget for it. I just was hoping I would have it for a bit before the repairs would be needed.

Coupler if they have to pull the motor . The coupler goes between the engine and the generator . Fisker went though many prototype couplers that would last .
It basically looks like a clutch disc and is made by Sachs, it amazing that their isn't more failures of this part since the present one was never certified
It's a huge job to do probably the worst repair that needs to be done the HV battery also has to be removed in order to take the motor out. We have a special fixture that gets bolted in place under the car that is wide enough to go under the lift arms to prevent the car from failing off the lift
