My question is whether this is a defect and needs to be repaired or is this simply one of the quirks of the automobile?

What you're describing might be the clicking or rubbing sound you can hear when reversing with the wheel cut turned hard over. This is a known quirk. There are several threads in this forum from the Feb/Mar timeframe that discuss this phenomenon, and a couple of posts from knowledegable Fisker techs (HarleyGuy and/or Nimisys) explained it and that it was normal behavior.

Note that there are a couple of other types of "clicks" that people are discussing that have different origins. I'm only speaking of the noise you may hear when turning in reverse.
