Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I have a 4-door Viggen. The one thing I find annoying is its low front air dam. I'm constantly running it up over parking blocks, or whatever they're called.

It's a small feeling car, not roomy, and there isn't a lot of room up front to store your stuff. No big middle console bin.

The seats also don't fold flat like in the 9-5 and the 9000. I loved the 9000 for that. You can put about 4-6 2x4x8s in the back of the Viggen and close the hatch. If getting more than that, you'll need a roof rack or a trailer. I brought a 9 ft 2 x 6 home the other day with the hatch closed. The rear area behind where the rear seat bottom folds forwards against the front seats is about 6 feet long and will take quite a bit of stuff that length. It's when you need to extend longer stuff into the passenger footwell that space becomes limited.

A blast to drive, very solid. The Viggens tend to need their front suspensions re-done at about 120K miles. I did the whole thing, with Koni shocks, control arms, tie rod ends, bushings, and more, and it made a huge difference. Actually smoother and more solid at the same time. But that cost me about $3K total, as I had it done at a shop.
