Karma Automotive is recalling 811 model year 2012 Fisker Karma vehicles originally sold, or ever registered, in the states of Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas.
These vehicles are equipped with air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger front airbag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment.
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.
An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
What to do
Karma will notify owners, and dealers will replace the air bag inflators, free of charge. Remedy parts are not currently available. Karma will send a letter to the affected owners to notify them of the recall and will mail a follow up letter when remedy parts are available.
The Karma Automotive client services team can be reached at 1-855-288-6109 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Karma's number for this recall is 5.84.17.001.01.
