Component: AIR BAGS:PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL
Manufacturer: Karma Automotive LLC
Manufacture Dates: 06/10/2011 - 07/04/2012
Potential Units Affected: 811
Defect Description:
Karma Automotive LLC (Karma) is recalling certain 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 certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment.
