I have replaced the CPS on each of the four 9-5's I've owned. The first was a 1999 SE, on which it was replaced at 174K after some long-crank starting issues. I replaced it again 60K later before donating the car to a young non-SAAB new owner. My plan was to replace the CPS when I bought each new-to-me 9-5 with advanced years or mileage. But with 9-5 number three (a 2006 at ca. 119K miles), my daughter had a hot crank-no-start before I had gotten around to replacing the CPS. A new CPS, and the problem did not recur.
So I am with you, Dave, doing some "once in the car's lifetime" part replacement early. The overall cost isn't much different, but it gives me some peace of mind for my wife and daughters.
