I disagree. It's time to sell. Only those with more money than brains will hang on to these cars. They could all become 2 ton paper weights with even the smallest issue with software, body panels, batteries, computers, hardware, etc.@bigdaddy & Gmcole,
Till today my car gets serviced. There is no reason to panic. No one knows what will happen when FA falls over. There is a good chance that some one will pick up the pieces (relieved of all the debt). Any new owner will have to satisfy current customers if they want to survive. Dealers will continue to sellcars and therefore have to take care of existing cars and owners too. Just be patient and hold on to your cars. It wont take long until we know what will happen.
Dutchman - I agree in principle. My issue is that just when I think things have hit rock bottom for FA, they get worse. If FA goes completely "belly up", the little value we have could disappear. I do believe the cars will increase in value in the long term, but I have no interest in hanging on that long.
I am not a technical person so these ups and downs with possible service is a little problematic for me. If someone wants to buy my car, make me a reasonable offer and it's yours!

I love the car, but am not saavy enough to source parts, service etc if there are problems.
I moved the original post to the "For Sale" forum. The discussion can stay here, but if you want to sell your Karma, please make a single post to the "For Sale" section of the "Classified" forum.I dont know if the mod can move the original message to the FOR SALE forum. I didnt know it existed
This is a very personal decision and I am not advocating one way or another. For me, it makes sense to keep my car because it has been working fine and I have not had any show stopping problems with mine since upgrading to 618, and later to 510. In my experience, the software is not going to wear out or change itself. As long as I have a source for the hardware and mechanical parts, anything that breaks or wears out can be replaced.After considering the conversations and our situations as owners of a car that is both outstanding and rare: I would recommend not selling. Car enthusiasts are what we are and this car is now going to be a collectable and attractive to a whole new base of potential customers. It's not the Edsel, it's not the DeLorean, it's not a Yugo!. It's arguably the coolest car in the world. We just don't have a company!.. So, if you can hold on. There's a limited number currently and if they ever start making more.. I'll bet it won't have the same quality we have in ours. They will be a sought after car forever. And as we worry about software; every car made now is dependent on software to make it work. And BTW, if you don't sell them, the value does not diminish. If we hold on to them and make them rare... the rules of supply and demand are in our favor. IMHO. Best wishes to all.
