Subject: Shortage of UK '04 Linear 9-5s


My local Saab dealer (here in the UK, NB) says they are having a hard time tracking down a (deep breath) 2004-year (ie, new) Linear 9-5 petrol 2.0-t saloon for me, partly owing to this being the start of 2004 Year, with all of the mad rushing about that implies, but also (they say) because most people seem to prefer the next-up model (Arc?). It's likely they are not spinning me a yarn, if only because they know I either buy within the scope of the "register it before the end of September" GBP1000 freebie from Saab-UK, or (for practical reasons) I must wait until the end of the 03-04 winter. But this seems to apply to the entire UK, even counting-in a fabled Saab- dump near York(?) to which imported vehicles go first (presumably to have the snow swept off their boots then learn how to survive on UK roads). Anyone know the truth of this shortage? (FWIW, I _have_ thought about whether the Arc would suit me; and the answer was "no".) -- Andrew Stephenson
