Older model Ford Crown Victoria police cars, Porsche 911 and Dodge Viper sports cars are the focus of three separate defect investigations by safety regulators, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Tuesday.

Defect investigations by NHTSA are not recalls, but sometimes lead to them.

How many donuts went missing to trigger this investigation? Pretty low threshold to trigger an investigation.

Face it, P cars are hard to drive and spinning them out is easy, got to blame something, can't be the driver. Ha!

Having a hard time understanding the Porsche issue. 10 owners complained a coolant line broke and affected their traction. How, in a rear engine vehicle, does coolant get to the rear tires when they are beyond the edge of the motor and slightly in front of the radiator? Causing a slick behind is one thing. But how coolant mysteriously gets under a 911's tires is fascinating.

Maybe they will mandate a sticker on the dashboard like they did with the Ford C-6 Transmissions in the 70's.
NHTSA is a big joke investigated but never recalled the Ford Taurus broken coil springs that's still breaking when backing out of a parking lot and punctures the front tires!!!

Our tax dollars at work. Good thing all the popular models are so safe that they don't need attention.

The investigations will most likely lead to recalls and repairs soon. A good thing ! !

Good thing they're investigating, there are still a lot of Crown Vic's on the road being used by police departments all across the US.
