Re: slow starting, battery recommendations - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
The battery you have is probably a normal lead-acid battery, and four years seems to be a reasonable life expectancy in a SAAB 9000 with a turbo - it gets hot under the hood on these cars, particularly if you do a lot of stop-and-go driving.
For your next battery, you might want to spend more and get an Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) battery, which are more resistant to heat and vibration - but they are more expensive.
