Karma's a bitch

That's why if I bought one I'd shove a big ass Hemi or LS in it.

It's a shame that such nice looking cars are such overpriced pieces of junk. I mean really? This makes like what, 20 of these things that have burst into flames? It's just sad. Proof that electric vehicles are not ready for the market.

Safe to say that's not a reliable car anymore

I would be scared to even park it in my garage. It might leave me homeless.

After reading this article I have a picture in my mind of gale force winds and sheets of rain and amid the dark wetness, burning pyres of Karmas, their flames to hot for the hurricane to douse. And children huddled around their corpses for warmth.

These cars always catch a fire.

That storm was vicious. I was spared, but the shore was ripped apart. So many nice cars were lost.

I would hate to be caught in a drizzle with one of these.

Taylor Garry Nov 01, 2012
That looks hilarious. What a fail
Charlie Austin Nov 01, 2012
Such a good looking car.. It's a shame they didn't put a real engine in it
Sam Oglesby Nov 01, 2012
Damn 3 survived
Description: A couple dozen new Karmas were being stored at the Port of Newark when the hurricane hit, submerging the cars under water. That would be enough to ruin them right there, but when the waters receded, t...

They should just buy crate engines from somewhere and save themselves te humiliation of putting out more flaming piles of crap

Pretty bad when a car catches fire because it got wet. Cool car, but wasn't ready for the public when they released it, and it's still not
Brandon Manworren Nov 01, 2012
I agree with Kyle
Clay Williams Nov 01, 2012
Sounds like another nail in the coffin to me.

What a damn waste

Not fuel cell, batteries it's electric.
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 01, 2012
I'd rather a regular engine than a defective fuel cell one
Boyd Boudreaux Nov 01, 2012
Not by salt water it's so corrosive and causes electrolyses the long term effects are not worth the troubles
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 01, 2012
All this caused by extensive water damage those engines suck!!! Any regular engine you could have fixed!
Jake Knickmeyer Nov 01, 2012
That'll buff out.

Ford took a government loan before they were in too deep. So yes, they used government money, but they were not bailed out. Either way, it shouldn't matter. American carmakers are making a comeback and are doing great!
Matty Michaels Nov 01, 2012
Paul, add Ford to list, also.
Paul Trahan Nov 01, 2012
There's the American tax dollars. In a melty pile of goo. Before anyone says they didn't take tax dollars do some research.
Michael Beach Nov 01, 2012
For sale: brand new Karma. One owner, low miles, smoker
Sam Oglesby Nov 01, 2012
Well I for one am happy about this as I don't much like them
Garrett Keller Nov 01, 2012
It's just a little melty
