I guess I'm not the only one who is tired of all the irrelevant silliness in the so called Ford Fusion discussion group. It is a shame when things degrade like that.
I saw a 2010 come up on ebay recently. If you go to www.ebaymotors.com and search on Ford Fusion, 2010 "Completed Listings" you will see a 2010 that expired on February 16th. I thought that was interesting. I am curious to know when they will hit show rooms. The main reason I'm interested is that I am looking to buy a used 2009 or 2008 and expect that to drop prices even further. Wish I could afford a 2010.

Well, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - right?

As JoeBlack1 gave me new information, I in no way regret the theory. Trust me I've read the rest, just antsy for news and felt like shaking the tree to see what fell out.

Only if the Vegas are in Vegas.
Sorry I started this.

When I first started driving (70's) there were lines. Don't want to repeat that.

As JoeBlack1 gave me new information
I didn't realize that a temporary ebay listing for a car that's not on sale yet was relevant or I would have mentioned it.

The fact that a dealer in Texas feels that they are close enough to receiving delivery on one of these that they would list it on ebay seems to me to be one of the more relevant and interesting developments that I have yet to see on this forum or anywhere else for that matter. And, it is verifiable information. You can go right to ebay and see the listing.
BTW, it is being listed again: eBay item:Ford : Fusion (#200311872282). This time it appears to be getting serious offers. But it's probably irrelevant, because all we will be able to know is the price that it actually sells for or, if it doesn't sell, the price the dealer refused to sell it for. And, who would ever want to know that?

That car has not even been shipped yet. At best it's just an order with a future delivery date and the buy it now price is MSRP. In other words, they'll sell you the one they have on order for MSRP, but they can't guarantee the delivery date.
They can put anything they want on Ebay - doesn't mean the vehicle is actually sitting on the lot. If it was they wouldn't have just a stock picture.

You can't put anything you want on ebay without jeopardizing your feedback rating. The fact that we have seen the first Ford Fusion 2010 Hybrid on ebay is a valuable piece of information. It means that someone has put one on ebay and believes they can sell it otherwise they probably wouldn't have bothered. It means that we're going to have visibility into the purchase process and watch what someone will pay for it. It means we're going to be able to see what price the dealer gets for it.You can certainly say what it doesn't mean, all I'm saying is that nowadays what someone will sell something for or attempt to sell it for on ebay is relevant. That's all. And it's more information than we had before.

The only thing that would be relevant to me would be how much my local dealer was asking unless you plan to buy yours from Ebay.
