Rob, You should have received a supplement to the standard 9-3 manual that covers the Viggen. There's not a great deal of stuff there--some warnings about scraping the front air dam, towing, etc., as I remember. Also, there should be a separate booklet covering service intervals and containing coupons you use to validate that the service was performed. This all comes in a vinyl folder with some other stuff--tire warranties, tire air pressure gauge, a little penlight, etc. You should be able to order one from SAAB, I would think. -- Robert W.
