Recall Alert: 2012 Fisker Karma

Boutique hybrid-car maker Fisker is recalling 1,377 model-year 2012 versions of the Karma four-seat plug-in hybrid due to problems with the engine cooling fan, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were built from June 15 through July 9, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), the low-temperature cooling fan that could short out. This could lead to a fire.

The only ones who had fires must have had bad karma


Minor clarification: the affected vehciles were built from June 15, *2011* through July 9, 2012. Any vehicle delivered this year is likely impacted, including mine.

I'm glad they figured out the issue and that it's a pretty simple fix. It's a great car.
