Fisker Issues Recall on 19 Karma Electric Hybrids
Fisker Automotive Inc. is recalling certain Karma plug-in hybrid cars from the 2012 model year to fix a battery-pack problem that could lead to fires.
In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the car maker said the recall affects 19 cars built from Sept. 22, 2011, through Jan. 20, 2012. The company also said the recent filing is part of a recall filed late last year for a similar problem.
A company spokesman said that after filing the initial recall documentation with NHTSA, the company determined additional cars should also be included. Typically a car maker would simply add those vehicles to the original recall paperwork. But in this case, Fisker said, federal officials required a new filing because 2012 had begun and the previous recall filing was completed in 2011.
