I would personally thank the owners of the Karma on how you keep a positive out look on the car . I can tell you first hand things ARE getting better with the car and sales are starting to pick up . I know there is some good improvements on the way and I know it hasn't been easy for the owners to deal with some of the glitches the car has and had . I speak to other technicians around the country and everyone I've spoken to also agree it's been a hard few months but things are getting better . I also heard from others that some owners have as much as 25,000 miles all ready on the car and haven't had any other problems except for the ones that get posted here . Not only is my job on the line here but all the dealers that have spent millions on this venture . Having positive feedback from owners is the highest priority for myself and the dealers around the country .
Thanks again

It is easy for me to keep a positive outlook! I enjoy driving my cool (and a little quirky) Karma. Those quirks are kept in perspective with a responsive dealer and the supportive Fiskerbuzz family.

And 615 has been such a leap forward that being positive does not really take much of an effort. Since I got my car back about 10 days ago, the 615 fixes have been solid. I can now use my Ipod or stream BT music with sound quality, I have had no issues with the instrument panel, the A/C is operating much much better, the delayed charging continues to work fine, etc., etc. The drive train continues to work exactly as expected, and I am getting over 110 MPG on my 300 mile-per-week commute cycle. I can't wait to see the improvements in the next update, but I am very pleased with the progress Fisker has made to date.

Not really a hard sell, as far as I am concerned. They just need to keep up the good work and not get distracted or complacent.

Just took delivery of my eclipse/black Ecosport today! I'll post a detailed first impressions and review in a few days (so far... I'm very pleased). It's being Xpel-covered over the next few days.

Harleyguy, your excellent communication with this community and your knowledgeable and honest comments are a major reason why took the plunge, so thank you!

I want to Thank everyone for the positive feedback I know many people from Fisker watch the posts on here and what ever is written positive or negative they take all the comments very seriously . Funny thing is when ever a customer comes in with there Karma no matter how many problems they have or complain about they all say one thing they all love the car .

Agreed. The quirks are livable and with continuous improvements and great support I'm a happy camper. I'm sure Fisker knows we're the best sales force they have. Our word of mouth is like gold..... or bricks so I appreciate knowing they have a commitment to us. We'll beat the drum, just keep listening to us. Thanks to all for making the buzz a great place to get info. I too made my choice in part based on posts on this site. Still lovin my Karma at 800mi. :)

I know there is more than one way to keep the body panels flush where the bonnet meets the headlamps, but this may be going a bit overboard. Plus, don't the girls block the light from the headlamps at night? :D:D:D

Does the girl on the left have her shoe on the car? Also with those jeans shorts, I'd be worried about the rivets.

Don't ever buy a Ferrari

When I owned my Ferrari, it had an electrical fire. So, nobody should ever buy a Ferrari.

My Wife's BMW 750Li was delivered new with problems of knocking, pinging and dieseling due to issues with the mass airflow sensor. It took six months to resolve and 7 trips to the dealer. At 50,000 miles, the transmission went bad and cost us $10K. So, nobody should buy a BMW either.

My Porsche Carrera had ECU problems that triggered the "Check Engine" light regularly for several months before they figured out how to fix it. So, nobody should buy a Porsche.

My Aston Martin had regular "Check Engine" lights due to vacuum leaks. Turned out to be a faulty spring in the gas cap pressure release. They had to replace it several times. Also, on three occasions in my first 6 months, the battery died for no apparent reason, stranding me. So, I guess y'all shouldn't ever buy an Aston either.

Overly critical? Wildly generalized? Ridiculously overhyped? Yeah….I think you get the picture. Forgive me, I'm just tired of whiners and media types with an axe to grind, and people with very little firsthand knowledge of the Karma passing judgement publicly. It continues to be a case of the vocal minority repeating the same negatives while the majority with no issues goes on with life without making a sound.

Oh, and for those of you who are extremely literal and have not caught on to my facetious and sarcastic tone, I happen to love cars by Porsche, BMW, Aston, and Ferrari. And Fisker.

Dave: Merged your new post with this thread because it seemed to belong in this sequence. Also, since a Ferrari is mentioned in your post, I am bound by tradition to post this:



And ....





And this is the one that hurts me the most because I am a huge DB9 fan:



Painful? Yes, but it's tradition.

Not only that, she seems to be a little, well, zaftig to be leaning on the composite panels. Those are not the kind of dimples you want to be looking at.

I'd hate to go to a party with you.
Heh. I have some awesome parties (on a college campus), but it's all about priorities.

Approaching 1800 miles on my Signature Series #25 without glitches that would exceed my tolerance level, and truly loving every mile driven. Sure there are annoying unexplainable events that occur, but somehow they sometimes self correct and once again you get to motor down the highway with your head held high, and know you are truly on the CUTTING EDGE!
