Obama Motor Company Not Doing So Well; Fisker-Karma Luxury Car That You Paid For Catches Fire In Garage

"Total loss."

“Yes, the Karma was the origin of the fire, but what exactly caused that we don’t know at this time,” he said. The car was a complete loss.

According to Baker, the driver arrived home in the Fisker, pulled into the garage, and less than three minutes later the car was in flames. It reportedly was not plugged in at the time of the fire and the Karma’s battery remains intact.

You paid for this, thanks to the Stimulus, and Obama's demented dartboard investment strategy.

Obama has rejected capitalism and its so-called "creative destruction."

In its place, Obama offers fiery destruction.

Get used to car fires in Electric Cars.

DC Batteries contain a lot of energy, and can deliver a lot of current to a short circuit or fault. Any short cicuit. Think of it as an Arc Welder that suddenly turns on in a part of your car. If it starts a fire in something flammable, then expect it to keep on burning.

When reached for comment, Fisker had this to say:


Last week, Fisker Automotive was made aware of a garage fire involving three vehicles, including a Karma sedan, that were parked at a newly-constructed residence in Sugar Land, Texas. There were no injuries.
There are conflicting reports and uncertainty surrounding this particular incident. The cause of the fire is not yet known and is being investigated.
We have not yet seen any written report form the Fort Bend fire department and believe that their investigation is continuing. As of now, multiple insurance investigators are involved, and we have not ruled out possible fraud or malicious intent. We are aware that fireworks were found in the garage in or around the vehicles. Also, an electrical panel located in the garage next to the vehicles is also being examined by the investigators as well as fire department officials. Based on initial observations and inspections, the Karma's lithium ion battery pack was not being charged at the time and is still intact and does not appear to have been a contributing factor in this incident.
Fisker will continue to participate fully in the investigation but will not be commenting further until all the facts are established.
Update

Editor's note: Autoweek received the following statement from the attorneys representing the Fisker Karma owner, Jeremy Gutierrez. The statement is reproduced below.


Houston, Texas, May 9, 2012 – On the afternoon of May 2, 2012, Mr. Jeremy Gutierrez's brand new Fisker Karma hybrid electric vehicle caught fire while parked in his garage, setting fire to his home while his wife, mother, and child were inside. Thanks to the fast action of Mr. Gutierrez, he was able to evacuate his family from the home moments before portions of the house were engulfed in flames, including his child's bedroom.

The Fort Bend County Fire Department immediately responded to the scene and as able to contain and extinguish the fire before total destruction of the Gutierrez's family home. The fire department recently completed their investigation and determined the origin of the fire was, in fact, Gutierrez's newly purchased Fisker Karma hybrid electric vehicle that he just took possession of two weeks earlier. Chief Investigator for the Fort Bend County Fire Marshal's Office Robert N. Baker has concluded that the fire was accidental in nature.

Since the date of this incident, Mr. Gutierrez has been fully cooperative with public safety officials, as well as insurance adjusters and the vehicle manufacturer's investigators. In fact, Mr. Gutierrez fully accommodated the precise and somewhat peculiar demands of Fisker Automotive, who sent their self-proclaimed “SWAT Team” of engineers and inspectors (that included their own forensic cause and origin investigator) to the Gutierrez home within 24 hours of the fire. They descended upon the Gutierrez home in alarming numbers and immediately demanded a 24-hour lock-down of his home, including the remains of the Fisker Karma vehicle. They also cordoned off portions of the Gutierrez home with non-transparent tarps to block the view from the public. Fisker even had access to eyewitnesses, who were interviewed by Fisker investigators and those investigators were shown video footage of the Fisker vehicle on fire before and other part of the garage. Mr. Gutierrez accommodated every request with the hope of have a full, fair and open inquiry into the cause of the Fisker vehicle fire that set his house ablaze and endangered his family.
Despite the fact public safety and law enforcement officials have determined Mr. Gutierrez's home and vehicles are not a crime scene, Fisker Automotive released a public statement on May 8, 2012 implying fraud or malicious intent were open questions. The family is stunned by this implication. The Gutierrez family has afforded every accommodation to Fisker and access to all evidence that public safety and law enforcement official examined. Fisker's statement is a grave disappointment, especially in light of the damages the family suffered and continues to suffer.
The Gutierrez family has suffered enough. They are temporarily displaced from their home, and have lost three vehicles. They value their privacy and wish to have this investigation completed immediately so they can return to their home. The law firm of Johnson, Trent, West Taylor, L.L.P., a Houston-based law firm, has and will continue to represent the Gutierrez family during this time. Please direct all inquires on the matter to our firm; do not contact Mr. or Mrs. Gutierrez directly. Attorneys for the family, Lori Hood or Rafe Taylor, can be reached at (713) 222-2323.

199 Following the war on women, and the race war that killed Obama's could be son, I'd figured Obama was looking pretty weak if he's struggling this hard to drum up enthusiasm amongst his liberal base. My theory the last few weeks was that Obama coming out of the closet on gay marriage would be the signal he's toast come November. Never thought it would come so soon, though I'm sure they aren't too pleased in the White House over Slow Joe forcing the issue.

202 188 #177 could have a wheat allergy, sensitivity, or Celiac disease if you get a similar feeling from other products. Though usually the distillation process breaks all of that down.

Posted by: Blue Falcon in Boston at May 09, 2012 09:11 PM (KCvsd)


No allergies that I'm aware of. I don't know what Celiac disease is, and I limit my hard alcohol to sour mash whiskey, because I simply don't like the taste of Canadian, etc. Rum is OK -- even the cheap stuff. I dislike Tequila.
I can't drink wine since I developed acid reflux about a dozen years ago. Reflux is gone, but wine still makes my stomach hurt.
That nasty episode also disallows me from eating salmon -- doc told me there's an oil in salmon that does that to people.

You won't find a worm in Tequila, though you will find it fairly frequently in some of the cheap local mescales. They use the agave plant, and the worm is actually a larval form of a moth. The better distillers will toss any agave that is infested, the small operations that make mescale, we'll they will pretty much use anything they can get their hands on.

I like some white wines but I've ever really cared much for it. For someone reason it metabolizes differently than liquor and makes me very drunk, very fast, and then I feel like shit the next day.

Double that if it's red wine.

I was at a great restaurant a couple of years ago and the waitress wanted to recommend a wine to us. She poured a glass and with the first taste I detected pineapple. I told her that I did not like it and to bring me a certain Riesling instead. She then responded with, "But this is Linda Cunningham's favorite!"

I responded, "Well good for her. Then there will be more available to her when she requests it. Now bring what I asked for."

282 I do enjoy a good glass of Boone's Farm Wild Mountain Grape, though.


*****

About twelve years ago my galfriends and I were on our way to an early tailgate party prior to the Jags game and realized we hadn't picked up any booze. Well, you couldn't purchase liquor here until noon so we were going to pick up some wine coolers but the only store nearby didn't sell them. They did, however, sell Boones Farm. So, we giggled like schoolgirls as we purchased Tickle Pink, Strawberry Hill, and Green Apple. When we arrived at the tailgate party we were mercilessly mocked yet, by the time we left for the game, all three bottles were empty.

heh.

291 There is a store near my house that I drive past multiple times daily. At least a year ago they installed two car charging stations that have four restricted parking spaces dedicated to them. In this year plus I have never seen a car being charged. But I'm sure there will be cars lined up waiting to be charged any day now.

Cube steak is good stuff - I marinade mine for a few hours in italian dressing and then fry it.

The other way to prepare cube steak is in a pan with tomato sauce, basil, oregano, a little garlic. Once the meat is cooked throw in the sauce, your fixins, then once it's cooked in add some paremesian and maybe a little mozerella over the top. Good stuff.
