@John- No, I'm neither owner nor employee. I'd hardly even go so far as fan, but more someone who just follows a lot in the industry. I run http://HEVsource.com and do know a few guys within various car companies.

Like I said, the 6.15 software was put out a few days ago and lots of cars are getting it. Takes a few hours to install, but seems to be correcting a lot of the issues. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

As far as the one issue that I have heard of actually being brushed under the table, it had to do with electric range. An owner getting just over 30mi was upset that others were getting around 40, sometimes over... Fisker basically told him that his range was within normal specs. I don't know of an update on this, but some seemed to think it was his driving habits at play.

As far as the car itself, sure there are some creature comforts lacking and, yeah, the nav display is small, and this and that... In the end, I still see Fisker working hard to right all the wrongs. In reading most articles, it seems like more people want them to fail than to succeed. Given what they've done so far and the obstacles they're handling, I say wait and see.

The issue(s) you're referring to are related to software issues. It's not one that's been brushed under the table. Fisker is working on updates. I agree, though, that these are issues likely not to occur with vehicles from larger manufacturers. That's all part of growing pains, though, and I think most owners are, and have been, understanding of that. The ver 6.15 software is making its way onto vehicles as we speak and so far it seems to be a big help, specifically on the issues you mentioned (blackout, audio, etc.) and also fixing the check engine light. I think having LaSorda on board has been a good turnaround.

This slide is basically a reiteration of their announcement on the 26th of March immediately following the A123 recall/replacement announcement.

They're, quite honestly, taking all the right steps. The non-owner public opinion is the only one (somehow) ever skeptic or unsatisfied with the company. Very few owners have issues, much less issues that go unresolved. There is really only one owner issue I have seen brushed off and it's likely the driver's own driving habits at fault anyway.

In short, the only forest fire raging is in form of the visage assembled by the rumor-mill and kept fueled by skeptic media. It's almost like the Chevy Volt thing, re-fried!
