Oh Oh! Not a Repeat, Not Good.

First, it was Top Gear & Tesla, then the Volts' burnin' & brickin', now on a long-term testing for Consumer Reports, that Consumer Reports, has a Fisker Karma break down on them. CR was doing highway testing, it goes on limp mode then finally quits. The flatbed towing vid shot was very depressing. Stayin' tuned.

I'm sorry but I have to be honest...

I think the Fisker Karma is a horribly overweight eco-scam piece of junk.

That's what happens when a designer builds a car. Leave the building to the engineers!
