2000 Viggen

Not Sure if this is the right spot for this one or not.

I am looking at purchasing a 2000 Viggen it has about 109K miles which is alot for a 7 year old car. I was going to take a look at it maybe next weekend. The seller says that the DI Cassette has already been replaced and that the throttle body was being replaced today. So my question to you all is... Is there something that is wrong or has frequently gone wrong with the 2K viggen. If not should I be concerned about these parts being replaced. I can understand the the DI Cassette. The throttle body is what worries me.

Also any other things I should check would be great. I plan on bringing to a mechanic and haveing him go through it with a fine tooth comb.


Thanks in advance

MAF is something that should be replaced just out of caution every few years. I would do it every 25-30k miles to be safe.

The throttle body died on my fathers 2001 viggen, so I wouldnt look at it as being a bad thing thats it has already been replaced in that one, one less thing you have to worry about.
