My 2012 Karma EcoSport Black on Black came in this morning! Only issue I could not figure out is the driver's and passenger's mirrors folded in when the button was pushed but only the drivers side folded back out. I cannot get it to go back. HELP!! 628 software.

Second Day with the Karma

Thank you for all the help!!
Other than this issue and a bluetooth/iphone music issue, the second day with the Karma was great. Had a full battery and went about 35 miles on it with 4 to spare. (AC on and a little "let's see what this can do") First day with NO gas! Oh, and the stares are priceless!

Gorgeous! Even after driving mine for more than a year in this area I still get questions and also LOTS of thumbs up. You are going to love driving your Karma!

Congratulations, and great choice of color, and not just because mine is the same color. :D

Day 3. Just parked my Karma at a plaza and the front became hooked on a parking bumper. I backed out and it pulled the panel in front of the wheel off some. I was able to push all back on, but still terrified now! I will have to learn how, where, and what to avoid when parking! Whew!

Thankfully mine never got stuck - my habit now is erring on the side of caution - if its unfamiliar territory, I'll park a little further away, get out and check, then inch closer if needed. Better to be safe (and slow) than sorry!

I've hooked mine as well a couple of times. I agree with SoCalGuy that the best thing to do is be very cautious and conservative. wish the car had a front lift like the Lambo's have.

I did it too, separated the bumper from the body pretty good. Had my body shop repair it like new. $500.00. Very expensive lunch. Too bad my wife didn't do it, could have blamed her, now she is one up on me.

You need to lay on the ground and underneath there are push pins that hold the bumper in . You should remove them and line up the outer bumper with the inner skin and reinstall the push pins .

Lormax, left you a pm but not sure if anyone has a good idea but I have oil dripping out of the front and back of the car. In front it is definitely dripping on the muffler box on the left hand side of the box. In back it looks like its coming out of the center motor housing at the bottom bolt. I can't see where the front drip is coming from. But it's a lot of oil. About 2 tablespoons in 4 hours. In back I'm afraid of cranking that bottom bolt for fear of cracking the housing. Any ideas?

Congratulations! You are now officially a Karma owner! :)

I did the same thing on about Day 3 as well. My dealer was able to pop it back in place and replace a few bolts/screws, and it was good as new. I'll bet you'll be able to fix yours up just as well.

What I learned from the experience was to *always* back into a parking space if at all possible.

Agree With Weird Fishes
After I messed up the first week I now back up. I stop when I can no longer see the parking bumper on the screen.
