Default Not Finding Many Used 370z's

Hi,

I live in Indianapolis. I'm planning to buy a 370z around the March/April time frame, and would prefer a used one.

Maybe I'm not searching the right car sites, because I'm not finding hardly any used 370z's in my area.

Is this a common thing? Thanks.

spring may be the worst time to look if you're trying to save a buck.

The Nissan 370Z and the Infiniti G37 are wanted vehicles in the market so it is not surprising since a lot of Nissan 370Z enthusiasts keep there vehicles for a long time even 100K+ miles. The Nissan 370Z and Infiniti G37 are reliable vehicles to own and have excellent resale value as well. I could have sold my Z one hundred times over but I choice to keep it. Expand your Nissan 370Z search and you should be able to find one that you like. www.ebaymotors.com www.autotrader.com www.cars.com www.craigslist.org www.autonation.com www.carmax.com www.autolist.com

Carmax and Carvana will both transport cars if you see one far away you want.

Finding a clean one from a private seller could be tough, I ended up having to buy from Carmax and don't regret it. The Nissan dealers suuuuuucked. Carmax actually have a great extended warranty as well (they actually honor it) if you're planning on not going full racecar.

Thanks for the responses.

Autotrader is showing 5 used, within 75 miles of 46143. That's not much. Filtering on manual transmission only gives me 2. This is going to be hard...
Right now I'm just looking. I won't be ready to purchase until early late March or early April.

Not to draw up the manual vs auto argument, but I'd suggest driving both. I was dead set on a manual until I drove the auto. Might open up your options if you reach the same conclusion.

Cars.com gave me better results. Guess I just need to setup a search (with email alerts) on all of them.

I'll keep that in mind. I'm pretty dead set on manual, but I'll heed your advice and try an auto.

Just my 2 cents: I know you said you will be ready by March or April, but don't let that be the driving factor. It's an exciting time to look for your next car, but make sure it's exactly what you want even if it's waiting a lot longer. I searched and waited well over a year and I was able to find my dream 370z. I've been having a blast every day, and recently just got my first ticket, but that was my fault lol. My point is, be patient and don't let the timeline drive you It'll be worth it!

What about these? Not sure what your requirements are, but these seem to be great deals from forum members.
