Media: Fisker repairs new cars with scrap parts

Sources say Fisker uses both parts from prototypes and used parts – including windshields – to repair damage to customers' cars.

Fisher refuses.

But according to Business Insider , which has spoken to a number of sources, in between 10 and 15 percent of all cases, Fisker uses old parts – or parts from prototypes – when repairing damaged Fisker Ocean cars.

The media quotes several sources with 'knowledge of Fisker's methods'. Three of them currently work for the car brand, and a further five have previously been employed.

– This only happens when there is an urgent need for parts.

– The technicians only do it to help the customers. Customers who are basically begging for parts. The mentality is that if we have parts lying around, let's use them, says the source.

Another source – who is among the five former employees – says the way of using used parts is a well-known practice. In fact, it happens almost daily and with the management's knowledge.

– It (using used parts, ed.) ended up being something you just did without asking anyone. It was just done.

Fisker himself has denied the entire story from Business Insider. The accounts of current and former employees have nothing to do with reality, says the brand.

– None of these parts have been taken from these cars (the prototypes, ed.) to be used on the customers' cars, says a spokesman from Fisker.

The person adds, however, that certain parts may have been moved around between prototype cars. But the parts have never been used on the customers' cars, it says.

Conversely, a Fisker Ocean owner says that the car brand has apparently told him that the damage to his car will be repaired with parts from another car. The Ocean owner has so far been waiting to get his car back for 10 weeks.

However, Fisker cannot avoid one thing. Henrik Fisker has just given his employees a notice of another major round of layoffs. The legislation says that he must. Read more about it here .
