Do you own a Fisker Ocean? If so, you'd better get that AAA account set up ASAP. The company emailed owners on Sunday saying it's officially discontinued its roadside assistance program.

As of this writing, the company's website still shows a full list of roadside assistance services.

We bought a Fisker Ocean for our long-term test fleet back in January, and we've had a seemingly endless slew of issues ever since. Now, not only is our car worth a small fraction of what we originally paid, we're left to our own devices should the car stop working out on the road — a very real possibility given our track record with this problematic electric SUV.

We've said it before and we'll continue to shout it from the rooftops: Do not buy a Fisker Ocean.
