With the cars being produced in 2012, I would imagine that most of the batteries are beyond their useful service life - is that a correct or unfair assumption?
Mine has been my daily since I bought it new. A few years ago I had a bad battery module and contactor replaced, but haven't seen any appreciable degredation in range or performance otherwise. It's actually been a very good DD for me, with my round trip commute (remember those?) of about 25 miles.

Before you buy one, do your homework. A well sorted car is a joy to own. A problem car is a nightmare. Search these forums, especially the "Buyers Checklist" threads (they should be stickied) and learn about them. Service varies depending on where you live. If you're lucky, you live near a Fisker or Karma dealership or trained tech. If you're really lucky you live near www.evolutionautosports.com. I mention them because if I was going to buy a second Karma they are the first and only place I would look. Joe knows his stuff any car you get from him or that he points you too will be in top shape.

Good luck! Owning a Karma has been really fun, and after 8 years it still turns heads every time I drive it.
