I know this has been brought up in other threads however has any earlier purchasers with fit and finish issues had a resolution provided to them?

I took delivery at the end of February and the two fit and finish issues I had were some malformed rubber door seals and the common trunk overbite. The door seals were simple pieces of rubber so the dealer ordered and replaced however the trunk overbite is still unresolved.

I know Fisker has figured out how to address the overbite in newer deliveries, however has anyone with a trunk overbite had Fisker address/resolve? If so, how?

Is it just a gap spacing issue that can be tweaked or does it require some modified part or parts?

I was told (by Fisker Silicon Valley) that it's not fixable. Mine isn't that bad, and probably not noticeable by anyone but me, but it's still annoying...

My dealer adjusted the trunk with the shims that are incorporated in the support/lifts on each side. This aligned the trunk lid fairly well, and made the "overbite" no longer noticeable. I don't see an issue any longer with it.

I saw a new Karma yesterday and the trunk was perfectly aligned. I then compared it to mine, which has a sizeable overbite. The difference is not in the trunk lid itself, but in the plastic bumper (at the point where it reaches the back of the trunk lid). On the new car the left and right edges of the bumper came outward/backward a bit more, levelling with the trunk lid. I then gently tried pulling the edges of my bumper outward/backward - it is pretty flexible - and discovered I can also align them with the trunk lid (except they don't stay that way). If something could be put under the bumper edges, to keep them sticking out a bit more, the problem would be solved.

Al J and Dutch your comments are promising. Should be an easy/cheap fix that Fisker can hopefully address and share with its dealers. I'll share this with my Fisker consumer affairs rep and see what she can get coordinated with my dealer.

I just had my car in for the fan replacement and I showed him Al's and Dutch's posts. Dutch's solution worked perfectly. Thanks Dutch/Fisker Buzz!

My dealer took care of the trunk overbite while my car was in for a check-up. The problem has been completely solved now! They adjusted the trunk lid a bit, but the main part of the solution was to move the bumper edges out a bit (together with the taillight!). It now looks perfect. Very happy with that. So if you have this problem with your car: it is fixable!
