If you're like me, you probably think the following things about the Fisker Karma. Number one, its appearance is breathtaking. Maybe not gorgeous, maybe not horrible, but certainly stupendously different in an amazing way. You probably also think you'd never own one because there's absolutely no way to service or repair them. This is my biggest fear about Karma ownership.

But apparently it wasn't a fear for whoever owned this one, because this Karma has traveled 59,000 miles since it was sold new in July 2012. Normally, this wouldn't be anything exciting -- 59,000 miles in 5 years is less than the industry average, after all -- but you should go on Autotrader and look for used Karmas. There are only a couple of other Karmas for sale with more than 20,000 miles, let alone 60,000; it seems absolutely no one used these as a daily driver except whoever owned this one.

Offered by Mt. Moriah Auto Sales in Memphis for $42,997, the Carfax report of this Karma suggests it was sold new into Mississippi and serviced at Classic Cadillac in Atlanta, which was a Fisker dealer. The first owner added most of the miles, driving it an impressive 34,000 miles in its first 2 years, before it was sold to a second owner in Atlanta, where it was repossessed earlier this year. It's been for sale at Mt. Moriah Auto Sales for about a month.

If you happen to think $42,997 is a lot of money for a 5-year-old car from an orphan brand with questionable service and parts availability, you might be surprised: Fisker Karma prices are a lot higher than I ever would've thought, with the current average asking price on Autotrader just shy of $50,000.
