Ford Fusion Lease Questions

  • Car_man -

    Any information on a 2010 hybrid Fusion lease? I'd be looking at 3yrs & 12K miles/yr. It doesn't seem like there's much support for the leases on Fusions in general but I'm curious about the MF & residuals. Prefer the Fusion to a Camry, but got to have the details to satify my curiosity.

    I'd be interested in any info too.

    I test drove the car this past weekend and really liked it, but the dealer wasn't interested in making a deal because Ford is given nothing to dealers on this car. This dealership had almost 30 2010 Fusion Hybrids and 10 2011 Fusion Hybrids on the lot. The car I drove has been sitting on the lot since May since that was when it received its state inspection sticker. They had other cars on the lot with stickers from February and March.

    Seems to me they would want to get more of them on the road.
  • Hi cosanostra. Non-Hybrid Fusions have lease support available on them, but to the best of my knowledge Ford is not providing any lease support on the Fusion Hybrid. As a result, you really don't want to lease one through Ford Credit.

  • That's what I thought. Thanks for the confirmation!

  • I'm about to pull the trigger on this 36 month lease, 12k/year. What do you think?

    Fusion SEL 6 cyl rapid spec 302A (leather, nav, vision), white paint tri-coat +$495, rear spoiler +$295.

    MSRP $34,450 (including the $725 destination fee).
    Sale price: $32,042
    Residual: $17569 (LEV% 51%, lease APR 3.25%)
    Rebate: $1500

    $750 out the door (includes first payment),
    and 35 more payments of $414 PLUS tax = $460 / month

    This AWD (white & black leather) is not in stock in the 12 closest dealers, so he's doing a dealer to dealer trade from 100 miles away. I guess it's harder to deal on a rare car that no one has in stock.

    In looking on the Ford website, there was some mention of $1,000 + $1,000 but I didn't understand if they could be combined.

    The dealer said the rebate was for $1500.

    I'm presently in a subaru SUV lease so no loyalty or other discounts would apply that I can see.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    I'm getting heavy pressure to take possession before the end of Sept. (1 more week!!!)

    Thanks,
    Mike in Philly

    OK Car_Man...I'm getting this request in early. As soon as you are able please post the October money factor and residual for the 2011 Fusion SEL FWD 4cyl model, 36mo/15k lease.

    Thanks in advance!!
  • My lease expires end of Oct.
    I'm getting heavy pressure by my sales guy to lease a fusion 2011 now because:

    1. "who knows if the $1,500 lease rebate will vanish"
    2. residuals get worse each month
    3. the value of my current vehicle will decline as well.

    It just so happens there are only 2 cars within 300 miles which have the exact options I want.

    So, should I sign now, or wait?

    All thoughts welcome,
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I've been told they come out tomorrow...Could you post the MF and residuals for the 2011 Ford Fusion SEL 4cyl, 36mo, 15k/yr.

    Thanks in advance! :)
  • Could you post the MF and residuals for the 2011 Ford Fusion SE 4cyl, 36mo, (for 10, 12 and 15k per year).


    Thanks.
  • Hi ortega. Ford's lease program for this vehicle varies depending upon which one of its twenty-something regions you are in. I would be happy to give you an idea of what its current numbers are for the model that you are interested in, however in order for me to do so I need you to tell me what state you are in first. Thanks.

  • Hello, Carman:

    What a great find this site and forum is!

    I'm in the South Florida (Miami-Ft. Lauderdale) market. I drove a 2010 Fusion SE yesterday (4-cyl., 6 spd. man), with a sticker of $21,625 and invoice of what is probably around $20,390.

    The car has definitely been on the lot for a while, as they had to boost the car to even drive it up to the showroom, and again when we started off on the test drive.

    I'm trying to calculate what a good price for me would be in a lease or in a purchase. I plan on paying no more than $1,000.00 at inception if possible, with a payment price between $250 and $275.

    If I read Edmunds' information correctly, through November 1 Ford is offering up to $1,500 in rebates available on this car in this region ($1,000 Cash To Customer, and $500 Cash to Customer for using FMC financing).

    Can you give me an idea of residual on this car and current base lease rate? I doubt I'd use the full 15k/year (mostly my commute involves driving to the commuter train station 3 miles from my house), but let's assume that.

    Thanks very much!
  • I am in (Northern) Virginia.
  • Hi lahtiji. I'm glad that you like this forum so much. Ford is scheduled to introduce its new November programs some time later today. Let me know if you're still interested in the details of the Fusion's lease program and I'll post them for you as soon as I have them.

  • Carman,

    Would you mind posting the November programs. I'm in Metro NJ/NY area.

    Thanks!
  • Car_man,

    If you get a chance, could you post the details for November's program for Michigan?

    Thanks.
  • I'd be happy to, ctaylog. This car's lease program varies by term and mileage allowance. You never mentioned what any of these variables are, so for now I will have to make some assumptions. Let me know if you want something different.

    Ford Credit's November base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Fusion SE with 15,000 miles per year are 2.75% and 52%, respectively.

    When negotiating your lease, make sure to take advantage of the $1,000 cash incentive that is available on leases of this car in your area right now.

  • Hi rcloud1. This car's residual values are the same as I just mentioned in my previous post. Its base lease rate is 3.0% for 36 month leases in Michigan and its lease cash in your area is $250.

  • Hi Car_man,

    Thanks for all of the great work you do on this forum. I've been considering a new lease on either a 2011 Fusion Hybrid or a 2011 Sport AWD. The lease rates I received from the dealer (I'm located in 94551, CA) are coming in rather horrid for the Hybrid:

    Residual : 50.5 %
    Rate: 7-8 %
    Term: 36 mo's /36 K miles

    Are these the only rates available for the Hybrid, I know there are no incentives? What would lease terms be if I went with the Sport AWD and what incentives might be available in November?

    Thanks in advance...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I've owned 2 cars and currently would like a lease so I can save up some money and buy an MKZ in a few years.

    However right now my situation is that i'm in a 2006 ZX4 Focus, I did a refinance not too long ago and am upside down on it a bit, which was fine but the refi company slapped me with a 19% interest rate so I was never planning to be in it very long.

    I'm looking at leasing a 2011 fusion SE 3.0L, i've seen the MSRPs around the 26-28k range for the models i'm looking at. I haven't gone to the dealer yet as I want to be as prepared as possible.

    Since i'm new to Leasing I was wondering what information I should know when I go into the negotiation. I worked at a Ford dealership for a brief time long enough though to be a master certified, but I never sold any leases. Also, my credit score is right around 700 +/- a couple points depending on which bureau is pulled.

    Any advice/information would be appreciated. I'm in the Tampa FL region if that helps with current Lease rates.

    I plan to head out on Saturday and go to Brandon Ford which is the #1 Ford dealership in florida. Thanks in advance and again, happy thanksgiving!

    Well, Ford was unable to pull a deal...the best they could do was a 475$ on a 36 mo lease for a 27k fusion V6....I asked them to put me in a focus and the best FMCC could do was 485 on a 60 month loan at like 10-11% interest.

    I went to Honda and got a 2011 Accord for 28.8k financed @ 6.4% over 72 months for 475/mo

    Happy car hunting!

    Car man and others:

    What is the January money factor and residual for a ford fusion hybrid on a 36 month, 15,000 mile per year lease?

    Thanks in advance!
  • Hi chadl. I don't believe that Ford is currently providing any lease support on the Fusion Hybrid. If that is indeed the case, then it doesn't really make sense to lease one through Ford Credit right now.

  • Hello Carman,

    Please provide the Jan MF and residual for the 11 Fusion 24 month lease. Both 10.5K and 12K miles per year.

    Thanks,
    LW
  • Hi Carman and all,

    Can some post MF and residuals for a fully loaded 2011 Fusion SEL located in San Francisco / Northern CA?

    Cheers and thanks in advance!!

    Eric
  • Here you go, LW. Ford Credit's January base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2011 Fusion SE with 12,000 miles per year are 0.75% and 61%, respectively.

    The residual value for a lease with only 10,500 miles per year is 1% higher.

    Here in Jersey a Ford dealer told me that there are:
    $1,000 Customer Bonus Cash Exp: 04/04/2011
    $1,000 Customer Incentive Exp: 04/04/2011
    AND
    another $1000 incentive if you are coming out of lease. Have you heard anything like that?
  • Greetings - my first post here!

    When do you anticipate that Ford's February 2011 lease programs will be announced?

    Besides this forum - which I certainly appreciate - are there other authoritative sources to find out about Ford's money factors and residuals?

    As you can tell, I'm interested in leasing a Fusion SEL I4 301A in Massachusetts.

    Thanks for everyone's help and advice. ;)
