Fisker Automotive is recalling certain model year 2012 Fisker Karma passenger cars. A manufacturing defect in the low temperature cooling fan may result in a direct short.

A direct short may ignite the fan housing, shroud and other surrounding components, causing a vehicle fire.

The Fisker Karma models affected by this recall were manufactured from June 15, 2011, through July 9, 2012.

Fisker will notify the owners of all recalled vehicles, and dealers will remove the two potentially affected low temperature cooling fans and replace them with one improved low temperature cooling fan, free of charge.

For additional information, consumers can contact Fisker consumer affairs at 855-575-7577.
