Default Fisker issues are NON-STOP!

I purchased a Fisker ecochic and had 2 new batteries installed, new muffler, new RDM and traction control and updated the system because the car wouldn't remember the time, radio stations etc! All for $25k. And over a month of waiting... and people I tell you , after finally getting my car, paying 25k and waiting over a month.... not even a week and a half has gone by and the engine light has just come on! !! I give up and I'm TOTALLY CONVINCED that these things from 2018 and under all look great and amazing...but are COMPLETELY PIECES OF JUNK!

agree with Fisker Philly- I have had mine for 6+ years. while most of my work was done under warranty, the car is great. Recently sent to get some work in SoCal (Joe is too far from me) but remember this car was a beta test car essentially - buying used requires an expert to check it FIRST and only a few guys in the US understand them but those guys can fix anything that happens.

Default Wait what??

Wait you got the car under $25 K???!?!?!? that price is unheard of. I was recently asked if someone could purchase mine and I wouldn't sell it less than 80K. The car is amazing and to know you got two new batteries and RDM/ motors means it will last you forever. A CEL could be anything/ something very simple. Look to the forum for some amazing service techs that can help guide you better, so you can take true advantage of that gem!

Default ..

Why would I????? All things being equal, the car runs beautifully. I feel it has better appeal and looks than its successor. The design is timeless. The interior well appointed. I am not looking to make money just enjoy my investments for myself. Its a great car and other are dying to have it. I may have it around a bit longer.

You know, I feel the same way. While from a mechanical point of view some cars have not behaved for some, for those of us who had good luck , why give up the art value value. People spend millions on art to hang on the wall - we get to drive ours ;-) besides if you live on the east coast and are blessed to know both Joe (north) and Adam (South), life can be worse - LOL
