I just got off the phone with Stephen Dycus at Karma Automotive in Costa Mesa, CA., due to having 5 of the battery modules failing and stranding my car to where even the ICE can't run due to the variable electrical flow. After discussing the fact that this repair is to cost $20K and the possible failure of other components in the near future, I am asked to sink 20% of the original cars cost back into my car after after only 5 years. The conversation with Stephen progressed with his saying it was an unreasonable cost but it is out of their control but they wanted to reassure me they were there and had confirmed the issue with Frank Kent in Dallas. I do not know why they wanted to "hold my hand and tell me yes this is expensive" since they are owned by the same company that built the original battery pack with the known failure. I would have to say I am disappointed in the process because the battery pack was known to fail and they were to replace them but as far as I am aware, only a few of the produced cars had their battery packs replaced. I am not sure what to do with the vehicle and would like recommendations from the group here. I guess at roughly $25K/year to own the Karma sport, it is a lesson in frustration and disappointment. At this point I do not think I could ever recommend anyone pursue getting a Karma since it not worth putting continued yearly maintenance of extreme costs. Any suggestions from my fellow original Karma owners or even the second owners of these pretty but failed cars. I would have hoped Karma Automotive would have at least done a 50% discount in the battery pack, given original issues and being an original owner. I could have seen giving the Revero a space in the garage, to have both the original and the next generation but now I can't see doing that when there is so little direct support.
