Bought a new 2007 V6 SE in Tungsten. The only things added are the ABS and side airbags. Invoice is 19,305, and we paid 18,100. We got the $500 rebate and a $500 recent college grad rebate. Took advantage of the 2.9% financing.
The buying experience was that 70% of the people working with the Ford dealerships were chauvinistic scum. (I had a couple bad experiences, can you tell?) It's so bad (being in Texas honestly doesn't help) it put my mom off Ford forever. She claims that Toyota is better, but I wouldn't know.
But I love the car, LOVE it - paid exactly what I wanted to pay for it, and got much more than expected on my trade (at CarMax).

We bought a new 07 Milan Premier V6 AWD a couple of weeks ago from Roto L-M in Arlington Hts Illinois, pretty much loaded with everything except Navigation. Used the X-plan from work and also had $1K in rebates plus 2.9% financing. We took our time looking at both the Milan and the Fusion and went to several Ford and L-M stores in Chicagoland. The difference between the shopping experience at Ford stores and L-M stores could not be more dramatic. Every Ford store we went to was basically the old fashioned high pressure "what will it take to get you to buy today" arm twisting meat grinder, while the L-M stores we went to were more of the low pressure "take your time, let me know if I can answer any questions for you" style. Not sure if the L-M division trains their salespeople differently, but we both noticed the difference.

Bought a new Fusion (finally!) on July 20 from Harrold Ford in Sacramento, CA. Details:
2007 Ford Fusion SE V6
Charcoal black interior
MSRP $23,960. Invoice $22,357. We were able to buy the car at invoice, plus sales tax, license, and tire fees.
I shopped 12 other Ford dealers in Northern California, from big auto-mall ones to small-town ones, and none were willing to sell me this car at invoice. Overall, I'm quite satisfied that I did my homework and got the best price possible on the exact car I wanted. It's below Edmunds TMV price, which also pleases me.
And... my wife and I love the car!

The interior does indeed get VERY hot in summer, especially with that black leather! We got the rear windows tinted a week after we bought it... it was the first thing we did.
