#315 of 470 2010 Fusion Sport deal, picking up July 4
Jul 01, 2010 (4:53 pm)
Just made a deal on a 2010 Fusion Sport with the 402A, premium floor mats and all weather floor mats. Sticker after Rapid Spec discount is $30,350. Final deal was either $25,000 if I take the $2000 rebate or $27,000 if I take the 0% for 60 months. I'm also getting an additional $1500 rebate for being a returning Ford lessee with either deal. Finally, the dealer is giving me $12,000 for my 08 Fusion SE that has the 4cyl and manual trans. KBB in good condition is $11,775. Overall, I'm really happy with the deal. I'm going to take the 0% deal because I'll end up paying less in the end. So i guess the bottom line is I got the car for $25,500 with 0% for 60 months and getting KBB value for my trade in.

Thats a sweet deal, is that before or after taxes? Mine cost me $30k after everything was signed, with 0%. The car has been great, 17k miles since I got it last september, and other then having the front rotors trued up, the car has been very dependable. I was a bit too hard on the brakes the first few weeks I had the car, it is so much fun to drive.

Its before tax and tags, so I guess you have to add about $1K back on to that, but I don't hold that against the dealer... The state and Uncle Sam need their share too...lol.

TTL is 10% around here (9% for taxes), so around here it would be close to $2500. Yours is only 1k?

Yea, 6% tax and $202 for tags and title. I'm not sure what number they figured the tax on, but I ended up paying $26,500 for the car, got the $1500 returning owner rebate, and got KBB value for my trade. The dealer was Koons Ford/Nissan of Falls Church VA. I dealt with Mike Bancroft. Really stand up guy, and a super easy buying experience.

To my disappointment, Ford did not increase cash rebate incentives on the Fusion in July. I thought they might, since 2011's will be here in less than a month and the Fusion has had the same $2k rebate all year. Current incentives state they are valid until October 4th, is Ford really not going to discount the 2010 models any more than they have all year?

The Fusion is selling very well for Ford, so why should they discount them?

It's not exactly a foreign concept to discount a car when the new model year is about to hit the lots. It seems logical to expect a little bit more of a discount then they've been offering all year long when 2011s start production in a couple of weeks.
The Fusion may be selling well, it's a great car, but it's not like they are selling on the same level as Accord/Camry. And does anybody think the Fusion would be selling as well as it is if it weren't for the attractive incentives that it's had for a while now?

To each their own. I would not be caught dead in a Camry, great car though it may be. Way too much isolation from the road for my tastes. If you want a completely numb driving experience, the Camry is for you. The current Accord is pretty ugly in my opinion, but it drives much better than the Camry. Honestly, I think the car the Fusion has to watch out for is not the Camry or Accord, it is the 2011 Sonata.
