I love the Fisker Karma like most of us on this board. Right now it's one of the coolest cars you can own. I purchased my car new in Sept 2012 and I had all the service and updates done, including a new high volt battery replaced under warranty. I'm still amazed when I drive the car that it performs so well after more than 50,000 miles of driving. After all these years the battery seems to have more range than when I first bought the car. I haven't notice any deterioration in performance or range.
However, if I was going to buy a Fisker Karma today I would pay whatever it cost to have someone from this board or a Fisker/Karma dealer that is well qualified to do a through inspection to determine that the car is in excellent shape. I would prefer the same type inspection that Fisker/Karma did when they sold me an extended warranty
. Fisker would not warrant the car with any pre-existing condition.
In my opinion it would be a bad ideal to purchase a Fisker without this type of inspection done. A major repair or battery replacement can be very expense.
As far as where you would get it serviced at I wouldn't know yet since I haven't had any major problems in need of service since my warranty expired and the dealer in Michigan jumped ship on us.
I guest I would have to ship the car by truck to FiskerPhilly to have him to complete the service.
Another Fisker owner in Michigan sent his Fisker to FiskerPhilly by truck to have it service. Minor service like oil changes can be done locally.
