no i have not but they are advertising the same cars, yes i would appreciate advise
also i noticed there are no incentives on the new 2009 fusion but i would rather get a good deal on a 2008 since it does not appear that the style has changed and there seems to be good reviews on them.
again thanks i would like advise on how to get a decent deal

Option 1: decide what you think would be a "decent deal", contact a dealer that has what you want in stock and ask if they can meet your price. If not, try another dealer.
Option 2: contact several dealers that have what you want to buy and ask them what their price would be on the car you want.
In either case be sure to ask about add on fees in addition to TTL (commonly called document fees). In my market this is typically about a $100 add on, but I've read where some places it can be as much as about $500.

I just checked prices of an '08 Fusion S with the automatic transmission being the only option. Edmunds and CarsDirect both price it out to about $17,300 including the $1500 rebate currently offered.
The '09 models have a rebate also, but it's only $500. Both '08 and '09 have some promotional low-APR deals available in lieu of the rebate, if that interests you.
Something else that might interest you- the current Mazda6 served as the basis for the Ford Fusion and they share most powertrain components. In particular, the same 2.3L 4-cylinder and 5-speed automatic transmission can be found in both cars. Mazda currently has a $3000 rebate on them, so they're obviously wanting to move them (to make room for the redesigned '09 Mazda6 due in a few weeks).
Edmunds prices the '08 Mazda6 i Sport VE (Value Edition) at $17,200 after the rebate. That model includes power everything (including power driver's seat), automatic transmission, A/C, cruise, etc.). It's also made in U.S., if that is of any value to you.
Mazda dealers have always been responsive to my internet price inquiries, at least the ones in my area.
Good luck with whichever one you choose!

the future in new car buying. Walking onto a dealer lot is way old school. I bought my 2006 SEL V6 loaded over the internet. Had 3 Ford dealers wanting my business. Paid $22,800 And got 0% financing.

I'm picking up a 2009 Fusion SEL V6 tomorrow afternoon.
Dark Ink Blue
Moon & Tune Package
All Weather Floor mats
Total MSRP $26,715
Total OTD $22,894 (Includes selling price of $24,447, rebates of $3500, & TTL)
Had to do the ford financing and I'm putting down $12,000, financing for 36 months. Even calculating with their offer of 0% for 36 and a rebate of only $1000 or going with the best market rate of 5.39% and $2500 my total dollar out put for the 36 months was less taking the $3500 rebate and fords 9.95% rate for financing. 9.95% is high for someone that has a credit score of 815, but it was still the cheapest way to go.

Just bought a 2009 Fusion (Dark Blue With Clear Coat Metallic) 4-cylinder Automatic with MSRP: $22,660 with the following options included:
3. Advanced Traction Control System ESC
4. Sirius Satellite for 1 year (included)
The out of the door price paid is: $17,082, which include:
1. $15,200 for the car, after the $3,500 Rebates from various sources (Manufacturer's, Ford Credit Discount, and $1000 Holiday Bonus Cash). So, the price of which the tax was paid on is: $18,700
2. Sale tax in California: $1547.00 (8.25%)
3. $280 for license and registration.
4. $55 Document Prep Fee.
This dealer advertised 2 other Fusion (same SE version with slightly different option packages) vehicles (1 white & 1 red) with MSRP $22,950 with the price after rebate $15,495, but I wanted the deep dark blue color. The dealer was willing to honor the same deal (that is why I paid $15,200).
Note: in order to get the extra $500 rebate from Ford Credit, you have to finance through them with inflated interest 8.9% (which I could easily get at 5.5% at other banks.) I went with this deal because I financed only $7000 through Ford Credit and I intended to pay off within a month or two (so I will pay max $100 in interest, saving $400 from this deal.)
It seems like a good deal, doesn't it? What do you think?

$15,200 for the car
It seems like a good deal, doesn't it? What do you think?
I'd say ending up with $7500 (or 1/3 of MSRP) off sounds like a fantastic deal.

The Internet manager at GO FORD in Littleton (Mark Huff) took me vary seriously. I let him know I was looking for an SEL V6 with leather, and moon and tune package. He sent me over prices for two cars that met my requirements that had MSRPs of nearly $25,200 with an all incentive price of about $19,900.
Then he sent me a third car. It was a USED 2009 with all of my options and 2,218 miles for $16,492. Not only was this car there and ready for me to test drive when I arrived, it was exactly the car I wanted. Without any additional haggling they offered it to me for $15,992 (note the sticker on the lot was $17,445). Needless to say I took it. They offered me full KBB on my 02 Jetta TDI and I got the FORD ESP at cost plus $1 based on another dealer that was offering it through their web site.
The USED 09 was originally bought by Avis and acquired by GO FORD. With all of the options it was $26,000+ new resulting in a savings of over $10,000 off MSRP. I would say that was responsive to an internet request.
#119 of 489 Gorno Ford in MI lied about price
Feb 03, 2009 (8:16 am)
I got a quote from Gorno Ford in MI (48183) through e-mail two weeks ago, & I thought the price is good. During the next a few days, I gave them all my detailed info so that they can gave me a correct price (I got a quote of 15k for a Fusion I4 S). To confirm the price & APR, we sent e-mails back & forth for many times. Today, I drove 50 miles to their office (I made an appointment), with the print out of that long e-mail, which is six pages long. When I arrived there, I was told that the person who sent me all these e-mails were not there. Then, another person took me over. After a long long talk without any real content, he told me that they could not honor this price since somebody must have made a mistake while calculating the price. He also gave me a much higher price (about 16.5k) for the car. I was totally crazy since I spent 1 & half hours driving there & another one & half hours driving back for nothing!!!
