Fisker Karma recalled over fire risk

Tue, 21 Aug 2012

The Fisker Karma has been recalled after a fire in Woodside, Calif., where the source was determined to be a low-temperature cooling fan. This is the second fire for the Karma this year; the other happened in Fort Bend County, Texas.

Around 1,400 Karma models already in customers' hands will be recalled, along with 1,000 that have yet to leave dealerships.

Fisker says it will install a new fuse in the wiring and replace the faulty fans for customers free of charge.

Founder Henrik Fisker said in a statement, “This incident resulted from a single, faulty component, not our unique powertrain or the engineering of the Karma. As this situation demonstrates, Fisker Automotive is dedicated to doing whatever is necessary to address safety and quality concerns.”
