I've had my car for three weeks now, and it already has been an adventure (in a good way). I'm enjoying it...and will be even happier when my 220V charger is installed.

Cons
  • The Quirks and gremllins (mirror issues, needing to do things in a specific order, etc)
  • Car bottoms out too easily for my area
  • Tire pressure sensors are confused
  • Paint seems extremely fragile and prone to scratches.

Pros
  • Breathtaking design and paint
  • Beautiful ride and peace and quiet in stealth mode
  • Unique interior design
  • Turns more heads than any car I have owned
  • Back seats are comfortable for most

Other than me killing the mirrors, I haven't had any technical issues. So far so good!!!

Re the paint "con", did you get the clear bra? I'm having mine done as soon as it gets to the dealer (whenever that ultimately turns out to be...).

The TPMS and other software glitches should eventually be ironed out I hope (by the time I get my Laguna Karma :D), so as long as the clear bra protects the paint, I'll only have the bottoming-out issue.

Bottoming out will continue to be an issue. Load leveling never implemented in the Karma as far as I can see. But that's a minor issue. Agree on the head turning design. Every day I have people taking pictures and ogling the car. Get the clear bra as soon as possible. Cost is about $1,500 US.

The Karma has Sachs Self-leveling "Nivomat" monotube dampers in the rear only. You can see one of them in the picture below (Green arrow) and read more about them here. Of course, this does not help the grounding of the front end of the car, which is where it mostly happens, to me anyway, as I charge up and down the steep streets of San Francisco.
