Recall Alert: 2012 Fisker Karma

Fisker is recalling 19 model-year 2012 versions of its Karma plug-in hybrid/electric sedan due to a coolant leak, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is an expansion of a December 2011 recall that involved 239 Fisker Karmas.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Sept. 22, 2011, to Jan. 20, 2012, and have incorrectly positioned hose clamps in the battery. This could lead to a coolant leak from the hoses, causing a possible electrical short and fire. You can check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.

Fisker has already started notifying the additional 19 owners about the recall and is warning them not to charge or drive the vehicle. Fisker will arrange to have the vehicle transported to a repair facility and will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Fisker at 855-575-7577 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
