Fisker recalls Karma due to faulty cooling fan

The Fisker Karma hybrid car is certainly one mean looking machine, but that does not mean it has no issues of its own to work out. No thanks to a faulty cooling fan, Fisker has issued a recall for their set of wheels, the Fisker Karma – all 2,400 of them sedans. I suppose this has been long overdue, ever since we read about how a Fisker Karma actually burnt into a crisp while its owner went out for some grocery shopping, all $102,000 of it. Fisker claims that a faulty cooling fan is the main cause of the fire, and continued to stress that the fire was not the result of the lithium-ion battery pack.

According to Fisker, “The investigation located the ignition source to the left front of the Karma, forward of the wheel, where the low-temperature cooling fan is located. The final conclusion was that this sealed component had an internal fault that caused it to fail, overheat and start a slow burning fire.” If you own a Fisker Karma, do expect the dealer whom you bought it from to contact you concerning the replacement of the cooling fan. While recalls among automakers are not uncommon, one that involves your ride spontaneously combusting is definitely worth paying attention to.
