The ultimate green supercar will soon be voluntarily recalled once again. This time around, the problem doesn’t directly involve the car’s battery pack but instead, its cooling system. On certain models, the low temperature cooling fan have suffered from a manufacturing defect that could result in a vehicle fire. The flaw could cause a direct short in the wiring that when contacted with the fan housing, shroud and surrounding components, would end in a spark.
Less than a year ago, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a recall on the Fisker for the battery pack. That occurence covered just 239 cars while this time around, approximately 1,377 Karmas are at risk. All affected models are 2012 model year vehicles manufactured from June 15, 2011 through July 9, 2012. The fix will result in both low temperature cooling fans being replaced by a single and more effective unit. The recall will occur at no extra cost to owners who will be notified starting August 27.
