Own one and so far love it!  I was very apprehensive about the Karma due to all the initial reports.  After dealer guarantee of a pick up and deliver of a first class loaner without having to set foot in dealership, we took the plunge.  One month later, no complaints.  Whatever small tweaks have been requested, have been resolved without issue, even coming by my office to resolve.  These have been minor and nothing different than anything I've experienced with a new car.  Only been to the gas station once and only to put in four gallons just to make sure tank is always full.

Test drove a Fisker recently. The aesthetic design really overwhelms many of the practical aspects of the car, but who cares? This won't be a daily driver, but something to take to dinner or Sunday drives. The silent effortless smoothness feels like science fiction. What a car! (And I could not care less about its environmental attributes.)
