Fisker is recalling certain model year 2012 Fisker Karma passenger cars manufactured from September 22, 2011, through January 20, 2012.
Within the high-voltage battery, certain hose clamps may have been positioned incorrectly during assembly. If positioned incorrectly, the battery compartment cover could interfere with the hose clamps, potentially causing a coolant leak from the cooling hoses.
If coolant enters the battery compartment, an electrical short could occur possibly resulting in a fire.
All known owners will be notified and instructed not to charge or drive the vehicle. Owners will be advised to contact an authorized Fisker dealer who will arrange transporting the vehicle directly to their repair facility.
The repair facility will replace the high-voltage battery with a new part, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during May 2012. Owners may contact Fisker consumer affairs at 1-855-575-7577, option 2, 6am - 7pm (pst) Monday through Friday.
Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
