So I recently got my Fisker Karma serviced at the dealer here in Toronto for a failed charging module. No charge = nothing works! So about 3 days before the charging failure I did notice that the A/C was not blowing cold. I didn't mention that as part of the problem to the dealer, but I was assured that everything was fine with the car.
On my way back I realized that there was no air at all coming out. The only air was when driving fast and the outside air coming through the vents.
I was advised that the blower motor had failed and that the repair would cost $4025 + tax?! Even on most luxury cars it won't go above $500... after all it's just a simple motor for a fan... Most of the cost is due to the location of the blower motor. It is behind the dash so the whole dash would need to be taken apart and then reassembled.
Is there any way I could go around this? It just sounds like very poor engineering for such a trivial repair to cost so much. I realize that it's not the dealer's fault for the location of the blower motor, but it's just left me with a very bad taste in my mouth especially when I was told that the car was fully functional.
If it helps, the car is going to Florida soon so it can be fixed there if it makes things any easier / more affordable.
Thank you so much.
