with very mixed emotions. No doubt it was the most beautiful car I will ever own. I am crushed by what has happened to this beautiful car and innovative company.

In the end, I just don't have room in my life for a car that I can't rely on. After waiting over a month for a basic repair my confidence was shaken. Even with all the challenges, quirks, etc, if I had a bigger garage, I would have have kept it.

Things I will miss:
  • Interior - the canyon tri-tone is my favorite intertior ever. As I am looking at new cars, nothing compares...not even close
  • Uniqueness - I loved driving something that was different...and that few people could identify
  • MPG - I averaged around 400mpg over the period I owned the Karma. I'm not exctied about visiting the local gas station again
What I won't miss:
  • Worrying about random warning lights, fragile paint, and other gremlins
  • Not having to think about the exact order I use to start the car
  • Having to answer questions about the car....constantly. it was fun at first but got old quickly
Anyway, I wish you all luck. I will stay plugged in to the community and I hope good things start to happen soon. Godspeed Fiskerites!!!

Sorry to see you go. As a city dweller with a small garage I fully understand your reasoning but that does not make me any less sad that we have one fewer member of the Karma community on the road. Wish you all the best and hope to see you back here when FA gets its act together or someone does it for them.

Sorry to hear you finally let her go. I hope things turn around for FA and you find yourself an owner again one day soon.

Just curious, what did you do with your Fisker, did you sell it or trade it in or what? What did you replace it with? Its sad to say good by but many others of us are struggling with the alternatives, too.

Funny how this works, I said hello to another Karma today. Bought one a few months ago and have been in love ever since. I can understand the problems associated with these cars but once they are running right they seem to go forever.

One door closes and another opens. That's how Karma works.

6 weeks and I'm still in love with this car.

Eric Karma - I appreciate a challenge as much as anyone...but not one where I have absolutely no control.
