Car has Performance Appearance Package w/ wheels, interior, etc. MSRP is $22,690. After $3500 rebate we got it down to $16,999, with $1328 due for taxes, titles, etc. Is this in line with current 2009 prices? I understand they're trying to move them to make room for the 2010 models. Many thanks for any insight...

That sounds pretty good to me, you are getting $3,500 rebate and another $2,100 off beyond that, which is great. If you do the price with options here on Edmunds (I don't know the exact options on the one you're looking at), you will probably find that your price is very close to invoice price or even a bit below, it sure doesn't sound like much above it. If this is a 2009 model that is understandable, the 2010 models are rolling in and a dealer probably wants to move the 09 models off the lot so it's a good deal for you!

We got the 2009 Fusion SE / 2.3L / i4 engine / 5 speed automatic / sport appearance package(SAP) / moon roof . rear spoiler / 6 mos of Sirius for 16,465 before tax and other fees. The dealer in California took off 7000 from the MSRP of 23,465. We bought this car on 6/05/09. Color is vapor silver / dark charcoal leather seat.
The one w/o the SAP goes for 15650 before tax ( MSRP of 22,650 less 7000) in white platinum /camel interior. So we basically paid 815 more for SAP which includes 18" chrome wheels / dark leather seats / sport tuned suspension.
The bay area dealer is getting rid of 2009 models to amke room for the 2010 so I think we got a good deal.

#192 of 470 DECISION???
Jul 04, 2009 (7:33 am)
do I get a good deal on a '09 se v6 loaded (everything i would need) msrp 25600 currently priced at 21000 OR wait and get a 2010 fusion at a future date. Is the wait worth it? I like both. please help make up my mind either way. thanks

Well of course you will save more money getting one of the remaining '09 models off the lot, but I believe there was a redesign from the '09 to '10 models. So depending on your preference for the looks of one over the other (unless the price is your primary consideration, in that case you won't beat the '09 price), I say get a good look at each and go with the one you'd most prefer to look at every day for the next several years.

I don't think that is a good deal at all. Most base S models are being advertised at $6000 off, so I would say you should get at least that much off sticker. Be very careful, also, as used prices of the old body style has dropped since the 2010 model have come out. I just bought an 08 SE 4 cyl for $10900 with 30,000 miles on it.

what would be my target price before any incentives or trade ins? This is an almost one year old car and the old body style if that counts.
#196 of 470 2008 Fusion SEL w/ 70k miles- should I buy it?
Jul 06, 2009 (1:57 pm)
My best friend works for a company that provides him with a new vehicle every 60-70k miles. He even gets to 'order' the car to his specs- color choices, options (he has to pay for upgrades when the car is ordered) but it's a sweet deal. He usually gets a new one every 15-18 months.
He's ordering his next one in a few weeks (a 2010 Taurus Limited) and I have the chance to buy his 2008 Fusion SEL V6 for $9600. It's black with black leather, Audiophile stereo, power moonroof, rear spoiler, reverse sensing and has traction control. It's in very good physical condition inside and out and has been maintained perfectly (they get 'dinged' if they fail to have the fleet cars serviced).
So I'm debating whether I should buy this 2008 Fusion (with 70-75k miles) for $4k under Trade-In (Edmunds) or keep my 2006 Mazda3 with the same mileage?
Any thoughts or suggestions?
