Recently Purchased #762 Deep Ocean Blue
New to the Family! I recently purchased #762 from Private Collection Motors down in Costa Mesa, CA. Great buying experience!
Thanks to Fisker Buzz (FB), I was well prepared at the time I made my purchase as I already knew most of the major items to inspect.
It is true that these cars have a personality all of their own. Mine, maybe more than most, but thanks to FB forums I have been able to resolve most of the issues on my own.
I do use this car as my daily driver (initially had 6k miles; now 14k) and have not yet experienced any dash codes (least not after upgrading to 520).
1. Light growling noise when backing up (I did not hear at time of inspection) Ė Have the ACDelco and limited slip differential fluids so will see if that resolves. Note: I havenít fully jacked up the car so I donít know where the gear oil drain and fill plugs are located.
If anyone can reply or post a couple of pics, I would greatly appreciate it! I am very familiar working with differentials; just not with the RDM.
2. Right rear turn signal light not working; confirmed problem is not with the tail light so something either with the plug-in connector or the wiring to the connector.
3. TPMS light lit on dash only. Diagnostic screen shows no problem. I've read up on this one and have purchased the ATEQ VT31. If the tire pressure down test does not work, than will ask Pat's Garage to reset it.
4. Driver B pillar rattling noise; suspect loose clip
5. Right passenger rear window rattling/wind noise between the big and small window; kinda sounds a little bit like a loose clip sound but noticed the weather strip looks to be a bit flattend on the small island between the two windows at the top.
6. Blown left rear speaker Ė Purchased a replacement but have not yet attempted the installation. Have to remove the rear center console in order to remove the dash panel from what I have read.
Other than that the car runs great! Lol! Seriously though, I love the all-over design and driving experience of these Karmas! What a ride!
Lastly, I did install the TOM20 kit from PowerSource which btw I highly recommend! The way this car was meant to be driven: 4x driving modes of which two recharge the HV battery. The kit also came with a Stock Mode connector for when servicing at the CSP. I must admit though I was very hesitant to cut into the HCU wires for the TOM20 install.
