I have the Saab battery supplied from the dealership in my car and I keep noticing that there is moisture around the caps in the middle of the battery. Everytime I wipe it away it comes back. Is this just the water evaporating because of the hot weater? If so what should I do about it? The only reason I'm concerned is because my car has been stumbling a bit on startup.

Without doubt, I would bring it back in the foolish hopes of receiving a refund..
Ha! Fat (NO) chance..
Then I would take the $80 and buy one from Walmart for $40 that could well be from the same manufacturer....

Nothing wrong with the battery, but do check the alternator output - which should be reading about 14 volts at a normal load idle..
If the charging system is over-charging (about 15 volts), then there is voltage regulator problems.
