How to best find a used E when you want one? Sounds easy but...

Hi. Been wanting to find a 2008 Kiwi Element (last year for Kiwi I think) and wondering if there's a way to alert dealers within a certain radius of what I'm looking for, without writing to every single one individually (DAUNTING in that this would take a vast amount of time!). Hoping there's a way to do a mass alert of sorts!
Private sale may be fine too but I placed an ad on Craig's List and so far have gotten all manner of scam replies ONLY. It's very disturbing.
I go on Edmunds and CarTrader and every other site I can think of to try to check for any postings. Unfortunately a lot of the info is outdated (cars are already sold) but will keep checking that way.
I have only run across a few Kiwis so far and the price variation is pretty amazing. I am also surprised at how many 08's have already had accidents!
Anyway, sorry to ramble on.....have had a CRV for 11 years and 175,000 miles - it's time now to change it up for my Kiwi E!
Thanks for any help.:)

What I did was talk to my friend who works at a Ford Dealer. Told him I was looking for a Honda Element and if he could find one to try to buy it from the dealer wholesale (dealer to dealer). It took about 3 months but I got a cherry of a deal on a super clean E.

FYI the E I got was 400 miles away from us.

trying to find my first E and have been up and down CL looking. I do know a salesman at a local dealer and I might put him on the chase. thanks for the tip
