I believe you have drawn the wrong conclusion on at least these two, and possibly the rest:if I'm buying karma today I may end up with bricked car because :
1- cooling fan what can cause fire ( some technician I spoke to they thing some of the cars still have fan problems low vin#)
2-HV Battery not all replaced and even if they replaced they end up with A123 , B456 OR Korean version so either way you will end up with bricked car THERE IS NO GOOD Battery in karmas world
1) Fisker initiated an NHTSA recall on the cooling fan issue. This means that every owner was notified and the dealerships were proactive in contacting customers since they got paid for warranty work. There have only been 2 Karma fires EVER and none since the fan recall.
2) There was an identified manufacturing defect with A123 batteries produced in Michigan during a specified timeframe. Those are the bad batteries. It is true that not all of them have been replaced, so you need to make sure that any Karma you purchase does not still have a suspect battery. Also there are several individuals/Fisker service centers that are successfully doing repairs of failed battery modules and failed on-board chargers. So you statement that you will end up with a bricked car and that there is no good battery is not true.
