Consumer Reports Fisker Karma Breaks In Driveway
March 8th, 2012 3:58 PM Share
Consumer Reports recently bought a Fisker Karma, which ended up breaking down in the driveway of their vehicle testing facility.
The car didn’t quite “brick”, but it was rendered immobile, and had to be towed away on a flatbed. We’ll be keeping an eye on what transpires. Maybe it will re-start once Fisker’s DoE loans get re-instated.
According to CR, the Karma lasted a mere 180 miles before dying. CR says that they will continue testing the car and that the defect won’t affect reliability scores, which are based on owner feedback.

Where is the Toyota recall news?
I'm sure glad they're not getting into the aerospace business!
No big deal, nothing another half a billion Obamabucks can't fix. It'd be a lot easier to return to the factory if it was in Delaware as promised & not in FINLAND!
Any moves towards energy independence are simply prudent as a national security concern, rather than funding (as Ron Paul might say), "endless war" that the oil companies would infinitely prefer.
