Maybe you should try reading instead of foaming at the mouth.
Well, let's keep it apples to apples....So your direction is to disingenuously the entirety of recalls of conventional autos, to that of a specific problem with hybrids, involving their battery tech....Why is it that you can't argue your point on a level playing field?
Food for thought for you Era....Fisker isn't the only, nor the first to have these problems in the battery area concerning hybrid battery tech....

If everyone thought as you, we'd still be using the horse and buggy because the "new" techonology of the automobile had serious problems in the beginning.
I am not dodging anything. I am saying that your current path of debate at the moment is false, and disingenuous. Tell you what, why don't we debate the similarities between Basketballs, and Helicopters...Sounds about the same to me.The simple fact you try to dodge is that other car manufacturers have in greater numbers had more recalls due to serious factors than hybrids. This is FACT.
Doesn't matter unless you can show as a percentage of new vehicles sold in the US had as a percentage more recall due to fire hazard break out, than did hybrids in 2011. Otherwise, your comparison is flawed, and false. Purposely so I contend.Food for thought, how many designs, recalls, problems have the conventional automobile gone through in it's lifetime to date?
You are right about this part. I agree that there will be problems with new tech as it is developed forward, and the bugs must be worked out. But I think that the problem that many have with this is that we are having this tech pushed before the bugs are worked out. Not to mention that at the same time the resource for conventional vehicles is being artificially made more expensive to also push this. Also, not to mention that in addition to the crony corrupt manner in which green energy is being pursued, along with subsidizing the purchase of these cars with my tax dollars is disgusting. The market is shouting that they don't want this, yet libs put arguments in favor that are deeply flawed.New techonology will inherantly bring new problems. It doesn't mean you throw the baby out with the bath water.
Not at all. If these are good ideas, then they will prevail on their own. Nothing succeeds when it is forced on people.If everyone thought as you, we'd still be using the horse and buggy because the "new" techonology of the automobile had serious problems in the beginning.
Hey, a friend of mine had a BMW 5-series that burst into flames and literally burned her house down last year. Pretty sure it wasn't a hybrid.
My wife has been driving a Highlander Hybrid for going on six years and hasn't had a single drivetrain issue.
