Default Rear End Blow out(RDM)

Hello Everyone,

Thought I had completed the necesary research on buying a Fisker, but it appears there is a design flaw plaguing many of us Fisker owners. The RDM fails due to low grade materials in the electric motors. To make matters worse, the "New Fisker" does not acknowledge the problem.

I would like to hear some opinions on individuals who have completed this repair and if this could be one of many expensive repairs that could be over $9k.

Thanks in Advance

I suggest you post your issue on the Newfisker and ask FISKERNEWS

I had both Motors and RDM replaced by Travis before he went MIA.... Cost was over $12,000. Some of this cost was travel time from California to Tampa. I have not had an issue since (Fingers crossed)
