Where would I get my car serviced/fixed if something were to go wrong?
Fisker of Miami is open near you.

Reliability- What is the chance that something would go wrong and render the vehicle completely useless?
At the end of the day, it's the first car from a new company with new technology. It has it's issues. Pretty much everything is able to fixed though.

I can’t afford to have this vehicle break down. How much will maintenance cost per year?

That's a tough question to answer, since it just depends on what breaks. Cost of repairs can vary wildly. Assuming nothing happens, you're looking at 1, maybe 2 oil changes a year. This is what I tell others that ask about the cost of maintenance though; If you're the type of person that needs the peace-of-mind of a warranty, the Karma is not for you. Some of the repairs can be quite costly.


Future of Fisker Automotive- Will the new owner honor warranties/restart production of the Karma?
That's the $30 million dollar question, isn't it? Time will only tell.


Depreciation- I am definitely concerned with resale. I keep my vehicles 2-3 years usually. Will the Karma continue to depreciate heavily in the coming year(s)?
That's another question that would be hard to answer, as the car has only been out for a couple years. Prices on the used market have held steady at where they are at for about 8 months though, so we'll see.


One thing to note, the cars at the auctions are most likely all classified as 'used' and would not be eligible for the $7500 tax credit.

Good luck on the search!

I'd be happy to do a pre-purchase inspection for you. If the car is located in the South Florida area, please contact Harleyguy. Thanks!
