    Hi there.

    Just purchased my 2004 Dodge Viper Convertible. Silver.

    Is there anything I should be concerned about?

    On my list:

    1- Get AirBag recall fixed ASAP.
    2- I heard that Window Regulator problems are common. Are there any signs that my windows will stop working? Or do I have to wait until the switch stops working, then get the regulators changed. =)

    Feel free to inform me about things I should do/change.

    Thanks. =)

    Check the bolt on the crank pulley ( if a low mileage Viper)

    Sure. It is a low mileage, yes. 31,000 miles... So how exactly do you want me to check the Bolt? And is there a specific Torque to tighten it to? Thanks!!! =)

    I was thinking more 5-10k mileage, the bolt has been know to back out and tear the nose of the crank. How you check it, best way you can I suppose.
