I finally picked up my car last Wednesday, March 14th; over 3 years since I placed my deposit, 49 weeks after I ordered it last April; 14 weeks after it was produced in December and 27 days after it left Newark. But whose counting? It was worth the wait. It is gorgeous, drives like a dream and my software issues have been trivial (so far!).

The low point of my saga was when my car had not arrived at my dealer in its expected time frame (7 to 10 days from Newark to Northern California). On the 11th day when I called my dealer and Fisker headquarters, nobody had a clue where it was. It was LOST. It took the Fisker Customer Service folks over 24 hours to track it down. My car was loaded on a truck with 4 other Fiskers on February 17th. This is where the story gets a little murky and very sad, as soon after leaving Newark the truck driver fell ill and passed away in a hospital along the way. After some delay a new truck driver was assigned and it finally made it to Northern California 22 days after it left, which I suspect is one of the longest, if not the longest, delivery times from Newark for a Fisker.

My feeling of abandonment by my Fisker was reinforced when being shown how to use the Nav system by my dealer, it rejected my hometown. It lost it! It wasn’t in the system. (Luckily I don’t need the Nav to find my way home.) But as is well that ends well as now I am lost in rapture while driving it.

Here it is (Shadow with Monsoon Tri-Tone interior)

@aejh2v: Congratulations and welcome to the ranks of the Karma owners. I fixed the photo links in your post to have the photos appear. It is not unusual for Fisker to lose track of cars, the same thing happened to me when they thought they had shipped it via carrier 1 and it was actually on carrier 2. But it's good to know your car finally arrived in your possession. I hope the truck driver had a full and happy life before he passed away also.
