Anyway to search dealer inventories further than 150 miles from your zip?

Hi,

Does anyone know a way to search further than 150 miles from your specific zip code for a Camaro?

The Chevy website allows you to search 150 miles from your zip, but when you're in the middle of no where, it's not much help....

Anyone know of any other option? I've already tried modifying the URL and I'd rather not ask my local dealer to search for me.

Yeah find out the zip code 150 miles away from you in the direction you are looking at travelling to broaden your searches!

Good Luck!

Try Autotrader.com...you can search "any distance" from your zip code.

do the normal search you would do with your zip code...and then look thru the URL..you will see a 'proximity=' argument...just replace the 150 with a higher number. For example:

http://www.chevrolet.com/tools/vehic...talCode=78727&proximity=200&mmcs=1ET37&styleid=&modelId=18875&region=20

Yes, very easy. As said above, when on Chevrolet.com and the proper inventory page, go to the URL address on your browser and change the following:

...&postalCode=01234&proximity=50&mmcs=...

That's the proximity from whatever zip you're using. And, also, you can then change the zip in the URL, Enter, and keep it going further based on whatever zip you please.

I've tried that..I've even set the proximity to like 1000 and it is still only showing cars from 150 miles

Because the GM websites will only show the closest 50. Beyond that, you just need to play with the zipcode, going out xx number of miles, etc.

Not as easy as someone like CamaroScotty getting on the dealer system and finding a specific combo in whatever mileage range, in seconds, along with a lot of other info, but alas...it works for what it is.
