Fisker Announces Recall

By Staff Writer July 01, 2024

EV maker Fisker Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for 12,523 vehicles in North America and Europe for an issue involving the outer door handles on 2023-2024 Model Year Fisker Ocean vehicles.

Fisker is issuing a voluntary recall for 8,204 vehicles in the U.S., 513 vehicles in Canada, and 3,806 vehicles in Europe. The company estimates that 2.5% of vehicles could have the defect.

The door handles on the Fisker Ocean may become stuck due to a malfunctioning mechanism. Addressing this malfunction promptly is essential to ensure the safety and accessibility of the vehicle for its passengers.

Fisker intends to perform a thorough inspection of all four side door handles on each vehicle utilizing a specialized force checking tool provided by the outer door handle supplier. If the force checking tool indicates any side door handle as “Not Okay,” the outer door handle will be replaced. This proactive measure ensures that all door handles meet the required safety and operational standards, thereby enhancing the overall reliability and functionality of the vehicle’s entry system.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Transport Canada (TC) are in the process of posting these recall notices on their websites. Fisker expects to complete the door-handle evaluations and repairs update process as soon as possible. The company informed its dealer partners of these recall actions on June 17, 2024, and will notify owners by August 30, 2024.
