If they are For Sale for that price it will have hidden problems do your homework and ask questions . If it sounds to good to be true count on a problem no one is going to sell a $110,000 car for that price if something isn't wrong .
As much as I would love to add to the ranks of the Fisker owners, with the company so close to some level of reboot, it may make sense to wait a bit longer to see what the service and repair landscape will be with the new company.Hey guys, I'm looking for a daily driver to replace my truck and I keep dreaming about the Fisker Karma. I'm going to read the forum the next couple of days to learn which ones are the targets and be patient until i find one in the $45k range. Is this possible? I see them from time to time on Ebay. I really love these cars. I can remember the first time I saw one. It's a head turner.
Let me know the place and I can find out if they are doing warranty work .Thanks for the feed back. I found a place that does warranties on these cars, but I'm not too sure how legit they are. But yeah there isn't a dealership here in Houston. I'd have to pull it with the F250. That'd be a nightmare.
Good assessment, but I doubt there will be much of an uptick just a little more price stability from the rapid free fall. The car has gone through just over a 50% depreciation in 4-5 years, which sounds shocking to most owners but is actually about the norm in the used car world when you compare it to any other luxury car (Mercedes S class, BMW 7-series, Maserati QP, etc) that sold new in the same price range of a $100-130k bracket. The difference with the Karma is a smaller spread between wholesale and retail pricing since no one in their right mind on the retail side wants the risk exposure that this car brings, so a quick flip with slight instead of normal profit mark-up is the norm and reflected in pricing in the market.@HoustonSig - a contrary perspective to those previously expressed is this: if you really want a Karma, and you are willing to take a risk - buy it NOW - before the announcement at the end of April. If that announcement is as good as we've heard, I think the price of used Karmas will go up.
Right now, there are many who don't know about the announcement, or who have heard but are skeptical. (The buzz community has heard that good news is coming before.) Currently, the Karma is at a low point. the company is bankrupt, and the original, comprehensive warranty, is nada. For a few lucky owners, a more limited warranty exists, but that is not really a viable option for most Karma owners, being thousands of miles from Miami, Philly and San Francisco.
Who knows how much the price will go up? We'll all find out. Right now I think most buyers are factoring in not only that the Karma is used, but also the uncertainty about keeping it running. If that uncertainty changes.....the price could increase by quite a bit.
