Fisker Karma problems, recalls, unreliability issue

This Fisker Karma sure looks like a sweet ride, but i'm not too sure about the reliability of this car. Plus I don't like how they are using our tax dollars to fund jobs and build the cars in finland, seems kinda shady...

Re: Fisker Karma problems, recalls, unreliability issue

I actually went to test drive this car. I didn’t like it much to be honest. The car turns very poorly, and its not agile at all, the ride is rough, its like driving a big tank, slow in sport mode (they say it has 400hp) felt like 200. I could also constantly hear all the little asphalt rocks on the road that hit the bottom of the car it doesn’t have enough sound insulation on the bottom or something. Had a check engine light on the whole time I drove it, the sales guy said it not a big issue... plus the whole nav screen and gauges went black and restarted in the middle of the road, hmmm ok, i'll stick with my benz. There is a sucker born every minute, I'm not going to be one @ 120k junk.

LOL, dude thats nothing on my way to work couple weeks ago I saw one of these smoking badly like an old train from the 1940’s, so bad the whole street was filled with smoke and could barely see. What a nice hybrid for the environment huh!!
