Consumer Reports has their Fisker Karma back from the dealership, and has finally been able to get their driving impressions. The folks at CR are apparently being cautious with their new six-figure sports sedan, for fear that another breakdown could happen far from home, rather than within their compound.
CR’s chief complaints center around the car’s mass; the big, heavy battery pack allegedy makes for a cramped rear seat, while also hurting the Karma’s performance. The staff are also hesitant to take the car on any sort of long trips, since any breakdowns would leave them stranded in an area with poor cell phone coverage. CR’s claim that “It is expected we’ll be revisiting the dealership soon. We’ve had cars in the past that have been troublesome, but never anything like this,” should tell you everything you need to know.
