Edmunds’ Warning: Why Buying a Fisker Ocean Was a Mistake

Considering buying a 2023 Fisker Ocean SUV at discounted prices? Edmunds suggests you think twice. The site details issues with the battery-electric SUV, from delivery problems to depreciation.

Issues included warning lights, key fob separation, audio system, and e-motor problems before a software update fixed some issues but missed adaptive cruise control and introduced new problems with brake hold feature.

Despite fixed pricing as low as $24,999, Edmunds advises against buying an Ocean due to Fisker’s uncertain future. The brand-specific forum Fiskerati has rebranded as CH4RGE, while All Things Fisker forum discusses trade-in prices and challenges of owning the Ocean.

Other EVs face similar issues, with Cybertruck Owners Club reporting various problems leading to costly repairs.
