I suggest you find another shop to check out the car . If you head over to www.thenewfisker.com they have a list of CSP providers . If you have the VIN number post it and we can look at the cars history .
@Rodster - I'm not sure if @alexpop does road trips to complete pre-purchase inspections. However he is the Fisker authorized repair center (called a CSP) for SoCal based in Aliso Viejo, CA. That is a very short drive to San Diego. Alex is very knowledgeable and willing to help around the Karma. You can find his contact info at elitemotorsoc.com. Good luck!
