#223 of 489 Used 2008 SE 2.3L automatic
Oct 25, 2009 (5:12 pm)
Just purchased a 2008 SE 2.3 L, automatic (basic SE model, w/cloth) with only option Sirius for $13,995 from a Ford dealership in Maryland. The car was a dealer loaner, with only 12,400 miles. I focused on buying a used Fusion/Milan because of good reliability reports and Ford's survivability and ideally wanted a 6 cylinder but most available were former rentals between 30-45 k miles. I found buying used, with the objective of saving a few thousand, difficult in this strange economy, with evidently low inventories of used vehicles propping up prices to some degree.
I would like to have bought a new 2010 fusion with engine, other improvements but couldn't make the stretch for a second car replacement (replacing '95 Taurus). Hopefully I got a good deal. Love the car thus far and actually for most of my driving situations I am glad I got the 4 cylinder for better MPG.

From what I understand anyone who is freinds with a Ford Employee or retire can ask them for a X plan pin # It is called Ford Family and Freinds program. It is not as good as there A plan but good. I think its $200.00 over the real invoice and fees are capped at $75.00.
#225 of 489 2010 Fusion SEL 4cyl 302A
Dec 04, 2009 (6:57 am)
Have not seen many prices posted here lately so...
Purchased a 2010 Fusion SEL 4cyl with 302A only:
Edmunds invoice: $24,634
Ford Invoice: $25,112
Price: $24,745 + $120 Adv fee + TTL
Price does not include rebate. ( I went with the $1,000 + 0.0% for 36 mths).
$23,745 with rebate.
How does this look?
#226 of 489 My 2010 Fusion Experience
Dec 07, 2009 (1:45 pm)
I leased my 2010 Fusion V6 SEL about 2 weeks ago.
I am paying $380/month for 39 months, zero down, 15,000 miles per year.
All the taxes were rolled into the monthly payment.
I have to tell any prospective Fusion buyers to take a LONG test drive before you lay down your cash. The car drives a performs great but so far the seats are REALLY uncomfortable. No matter how many adjustments I make to the 8-way power drivers seat, I'm still uncomfortable! I'm hoping they just need to be worked-in or I am going to be one unhappy camper for the next 39 months!
#227 of 489 2010 Fusion SEL Purchase Price
Dec 20, 2009 (12:40 pm)
I bought a 2010 Fusion SEL with the 302A package and rear spoiler.
True invoice is then 22,891(obviously this doesn't include hold-back etc. but I don't factor that in)
I paid 23,400 so about $500 over invoice. 24,475 if you include the 75 documentation fee.
I never thought I would pay that much over invoice but I just wanted to be done with it.
Dealer is also paying to get my car shipped in from another state.
I need a car and the dealer offered me an amount I was happy with for my trade in so I just took the deal. Also its less than the TMV of what others are paying according to edmunds.

I love my new Fusion,
I found out from a friend of mine that you can shop around for the Ford extended warranty and you do not have to buy it from the dealer you purchased your car from.He told me to call Midwest Superstore in Hutchinson Kansas they are a Ford and Toyota Dealer ship.They gave him a great deal on his Toyota warranty.
So I did just that.To make a long story short my friend was right I bought a 5 year 75,000 miles Premium Care Ford warranty for only $850.00
The sales person was very nice and gave me his best price and did not push.I told him I needed to talk to my wife Jerry told me that was fine just give him a call when I was ready.and it would only take a few min to do over the phone.
I saved over half of what I could have paid.
You can do the same no matter what state you live in on any Ford with in the 3 years and 36,000 miles
Call Midwest Superstore at 1100 east 30th Hutchinson, Ks 67502

Lazzo: I know its probably to late for your deal but it looks like the dealer charged you twice for the Advertise fee. FDAF (Ford Dealers Advertise Fee) $478 then they charged you again Adv fee $120.00

Does anyone know how long I can wait to buy the Ford extended warranty?

You should be able to purchase it any time while the car is still under the factory warranty. I pretty much did the same thing when I bought a Prius, only did it in such a way that I actually made money. I bought the warranty when I bought the car, cost $1900. Got home and later found where I could get it for $850, called in to cancel the warranty, instead they knocked $1200 off and sent me a check, otherwise they would have to dicker around with refinancing. So I got a $1200 loan 2.9%, When I traded in the car and called in to cancel the warranty, I got a $1400 refund. Not a bad deal. I also broke even on the trade of the Prius. For once I actually made money buying a used car.

" I bought the warranty when I bought the car, cost $1900. Got home and later found where I could get it for $850"
I hope the dealers out there are paying attention to the power of the internet. They tried to steal over $1000.00 from you. I bet they were shocked that another dealer could sell you the same policy for a grand less . In any other business that would be called theft by deception.
