I have a 2001 9.5SE 6 cylinder and need to replace my current battery. Would like to try an AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat)battery like the red or yellow top spiral Optima, but apparently not available for my car (Group 48). Also does not appear that the AGM Platinum or AGM Advanced Die Hard Gold are available either (just the regular Die Hard Gold). I also noted that Consumer Reports does not cover the Group 48 batteries in their current rankings.

Can anyone recommend an AGM battery that fits a 2001 9.5SE 6 cylinder, or any other battery for that matter? Currently only been looking at the Interstate Mega-Tron Plus 91 and the Die Hard Gold H6/48. I may have missed it, but I could not find any current discussion on this.

Thoughts?

Thanks very much!

I have been using Interstate for many years. Saabs are heavy on batteries and mine never make it even close to the end of the warranty. A battery guy told me its because of the location of the battery so close to the engine and exposed to extreme heat.
