Do you use (or intend to use) your Karma as a primary car for your daily commute, etc...? Or is it a secondary car that you bring out on the weekends for going out on the town, attending events, taking a scenic drive, etc...?

For me:
Secondary car that I take out on the weekends, attending events, going out with wife, never in rain and only on nice sunny days or perfect nights.

When I bought my last ICE mobile (a BMW 760) four years ago, I promised myself that it would be my last gas powered daily driver. The week I got the Fisker I ceremoniously sold the BMW and have never looked back. If at all possible it's the only car I drive. 38 Miles in the morning (Daughter to school - then to work) charge at work then 12.5 miles home.

Daily driver in good weather, otherwise a pickup (Karma really sucks in snow).

I'll soon hit 4000 miles of daily (mostly electric) use.

My only car. Used once or twice a month. 4.5 months later, I have about 1,800 miles or so on it.

This is my primary car. I had a mercedes SLK T-boned in an intersection. The Karma was to be a secondary car but became a primary car. It has worked flawlessly. That said, there are software issues still with navigation, blutooth, engagement of ICE (warning light on for 1 sec), easy entry, and radio codes lost 3 times, all since update to 6.15. Great car to drive!!!

Thanks everyone for your responses! Keep 'em coming! It's interesting (to me at least) to know how people are using their Karmas.

One time I lost my presets and think it was related to the car not linking properly to the key fob, because when I went to Settings-interior-memory 1 and hit set, they instantly came back.

Wow, I'm a huge fan as well ... but ONLY car! You must be really dedicated or really brave or live next door to your dealership. Also I'm guessing you don't do carpool duty with middle school girls!

From what I understand after reading a couple of his posts, SoCalGuy lives in NYC (thus, no need for a car) and spends weekends in Los Angeles (thus, total need for a car!). So he drives the Karma only on the weekends...nonetheless, it is his only car. Did I get that right, SoCalGuy?

Daily driver. Perfect for dropping my two boys at school and comuting to the office. And,enough room for a trip to whole food (where i get a free plug in, and rock star parking). I was going to keep my 911 turbo, as my daily, but i like the fisker a lot more. It is working great for me. I love cutting back on my foreign oil intake significantly.
