Generally the care develop a misfire when hot that most people ignore. I agree that a spare DI in the trunk might be nice. Lots of cars have DI systems and they all seem to have problems somewhere over 50K miles (except Audi & BMW, which recently had a rash of low mileage cars dropping like flies... so many that customers were waiting months for the parts to come through). One difference with the Saab DI is that it's replaced as a unit - most other makes use individually replaceable coils.
