I think they are very easy to wrench on. (I do everything except alignments and tire mounting!)
I've owned a version of the 9-5 4-cylinder since I bought my first Saab, a 1993 9000 Aero with the precursor to the 9-5 engine.
Oil changes and brakes are easy, and you'll learn the other "regular" maintenance items as you read up on them.
For starters, get a spare DIC for the trunk, and have a serpentine belt and crank position sensor on hand. Also, find a good Saab mechanic in your area. Most of the good ones will know how to get parts or be okay with you buying parts. I get (most) all of my parts from eEuroparts.com, a site sponsor.
