US safety regulators probing Porsche 911, Dodge Viper over defects

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has said that Porsche 911 and Dodge Viper sports cars are the focus of three separate defect investigations, Reuters has reported. There are about 10,000 Porsche 911 models equipped with GTI engines from model years 2001 to 2007 being investigated over possible failure of a cooling hose fitting that can cause rapid loss of coolant without warning, which could disable the vehicle and cause a slick on the road that could affect following traffic. The safety regulator is also examining model year 2005 and 2006 Dodge Vipers made by Chrysler for possible failure of the rear suspension knuckle after two complaints were filed with the federal agency that resulted in crashes.
