Why bother?
You got 6 years out of the old one, and it was probably abused sitting around a lot while being shipped, waiting to be picked up, etc. A Saab does not have a hard starting engine, so there is hardly any need for anything special. And if you spend twice as much, it is not going to last twice as long. If you have no shorts and a good alternator, a normal battery is fine.

However, is you are determined to have the best, I believe that is an Optima. Costs about $150, and is a sealed gelcell battery that won't give off explosive or corrosive gases. Allows much deeper cycling and quicker recharge as well. Easy on the alternator.

My 2004 Saab 9-3 2.0T wont start


you have a drain on the battery. this can be a number of things alarm immobilizer or the power sounder. the power sounder has its own battery and over time the battery will become damaged etc. this would then start using the battery on the vehicle at a higher rate than it would normally need, this can cause the battery to be damaged theater.
Siren.
1) The siren is located behind the right - hand side luggage compartment side trim panel on some models, and behind the front bumper on others. Remove the panel or bumper.
3) Undo the 2 retaining bolts, disconnect the wiring plug and remove the siren.

Help! Changed battery but still don't work for a long time


you probably have a short in the amplifier under the driver's seat. I had the same problem. Bought mine used, but the amp had water damage due to the vents for it on the left side of the driver's seat letting in water, probably snow or something that fell in there. Was $1200 to replace. Basically your car will be fine for a couple weeks, maybe a month then the battery will die.

Changing battery on 2003 93 sedan, radio sound is bad


If you disconnected the battery incorrecdtly you may have blown some wireing that has then blown the speakers,if speakers are blown they sound really crackelly or dont work atall (disconnecting the battery would be taking the red wire (+) off first and incorrectly replacing the wires would be connecting the neggative first (-). its not herd off but it could be the problem??
