I've 2 Saab 9-5, a 1999 and a 2004 .
The 1999 has a very smooth idle, the only exception is on very cold winter mornings when there is some noticeable vibration.
The 2004 however is noticeably rougher in comparison - and was staring to idle a bit ubevenly several months back, then on a recent trip the CEL lit and the throttle body failed. It's now back to just being rough, but the uneven idle was a precursor to the TB failure.
