Dear Buzzers?

I am assuming the roadside assistance package also disappears when FA goes Chapter 11. I know most of you have not had the experience of being stranded since Fisker stabilized the software. However, having my car since 2011, I have needed to utilize the service more than one occasions. I have AAA service, however, I don't know if they would have a flatbed for Fisker Karma. Any recommendations for my peace of mind? Ideas? This car is meant to be driven, so please do not suggest me leaving it in the garage :D

AAA works with thousands of tow companies. When you call for the tow, simply request a flatbed, as it's required. You may end up waiting a little bit longer while one frees up, but I've never had a problem.

A lot of insurance companies also provide roadside assistance as part of their coverage and most newer cars cannot be towed on their wheels and have to be transported on a flatbed, so that's not particularly unusual.

Has anyone actually used the compressor that came with the car? How did it perform? I guess for a slow leak, one would just pump it up and drive to the dealer/repair center.

I have customer use it and it worked fine the only thing is if you use the fix a flat the chemical is only good for one time tire use .So you have to decided is it worth using the chemical you may have trouble finding a dealer that has some in stock .If you get a small hole and can make it to a tire store they can always patch the tire .

Is it possible to use the standard fix-a-flat material instead of the Fisker branded stuff? The standard stuff is easy to find and replace but the Fisker branded material may become really rare.

Do you guys patch these kind of high performance tires on a heavy weight car?
Yes, we've patched a few, no issues.

I'd only use it in the case of emergency. I've heard the standard stuff can destroy a TPMS sensor.
