2004 and 2005 Arcs are not hard to find

If you want a true Linear for 2004 or 2005, you look for the Wagon.
But IMO none of the 2004 or 2005 Arcs are just Linears with an Aero motor. They're more accurately 2003 Arcs with the Aero 4 instead of the previous V6. They have nice sound systems, sometimes Xenon headlamps, fancy wood dash, lower front valence and sometimes even ventilated front seats. I think the door sill treatment is more fancy also. Those 04 and 05 Linear wagons are strippers and usually have had a very hard life. And the Garrett turbo on the low output motor actually experiences more failure than the Mitsu in the high pressure motor.
I've seen a couple 04 and 05 Arcs I wanted but my girlfriend is chafing at the idea of even one more - I gotta hold out for the perfect 9-5 since we already have 4.
