Let me reiterate, I'm in North Carolina. The closest dealership to me is technically Georgia, but they gave me an estimated time of repair of "about a month"! That's a long time to leave your car sitting and driving a rental. Fisker of Cherry Hill (FiskerPhilly) gave me a much more acceptable estimate of "a day or two", so I made the drive to him.

That really says something for the Fisker, really. Even after being struck by lightning, I had no real problem making the 10-hour trip. I can't say that driving around Philly with a big car is a very pleasant experience, but other than that... uneventful.

True to his word, Joe (FiskerPhilly) and Brinton were able to get the job done in record time! He also replaced my central exhaust, replaced a failed module that wouldn't balance, and updated my CIU to the latest software, all within 2 1/2 days! Not to mention the fact that Brinton made a special trip to come pick up my car at the hotel late in the evening, so that I wouldn't have to fight the traffic myself (that's what you call "going way beyond the call of duty").

On top of that, they worked quickly and diligently with my insurance company (Erie), who was also surprisingly accommodating.

So now, yea for me! I finally have my speedometer back, and I'm basically driving a brand new car again :-) Thanks, Joe!

Next up... paint job in the Spring to fix that irritating road rash :-P
Not surprised to hear your story. This is a unique car and my experience with Joe and staff is worth any geographic issues. Enjoy.
I just got back from leaving my Karma for 5 weeks on a 54% charge and no trickle charger. Started perfectly thanks to the updated software. :-)
