I own 9-3 and 9-5 cars from the era you speak of, and just given the build quality alone I would opt for the 9-5, especially if it is well taken care of.
No car is durability proof, though, and you can search this board for the common items that crop up on 9-5's. Some are predictable/can be solved with preventive maintenance, but many "wear" items as well that are not as predictable.
