U.S. auto safety regulators are investigating complaints that a rear suspension part can fail on the iconic Dodge Viper muscle car.

The investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covers about 2,500 Vipers from the 2005 and '06 model years.

The safety agency says a rear suspension connector may break while the car is moving, causing drivers to lose control.

The agency has reports of two crashes and one injury.

Investigators will check to see if the problem is bad enough to issue a recall.

Chrysler says it's cooperating in the probe and says owners should take their cars to dealers if they have concerns.
