Turns out the $100k Fisker Karma (which Ellen gave to him for his 18th B-day) is a piece of crap.

They can, but then they would be an unknown tiny company making tiny numbers of an unremarkable car and making far less profit from each sale because they wouldn`t be able to add a massive "greeness" premium to the price...and people would buy established marques instead for some combination of status, proven reliability and servicing. It`s extremely hard for any small car maker to do business in anything other than a niche market that they can specialise in and excel at (e.g. Caterham and road-legal track cars, and they`re now part of a huge Malaysian company anyway).

Fisker have been forced to recall some of them. They won`t say how many they`ve sold, but they have to say how many they`ve recalled. It might be all of the ones they`ve sold, it might not.

On the plus side, they have traced the problem that appears to be causing almost all of the failures. It`s a design fault with the cooling system, apparently. Fixable, but it requires parts to be replaced.

Shouldn`t it be Karma running over dogma?

That isn`t his car, it`s just the same kind.

There have been countless reports of these cars breaking down with next to no mileage on them. It`s a shame, it`s such a beautiful car. Too bad they can`t make an all gasoline version. I`m thinking maybe ditch the electric, drop a BiTurbo V8 in there and call it a day.

saying this car is crap because of this one incident is no different than being one of those idiots who won`t buy a toyota because the gas pedal may stick and you`ll die going 120mph

Prius did the same thing when it was first released.
You`d be driving down the highway and everything would shut off and refuse to start again.
It turned out to be a bad line of code in the computer. Update to Prius 1.2 and you were good to go.

So because one car breaks down, they`re all crap? That means there isn`t a good car out there. They all break down sometimes.
