    Since no one has answered your post, I'll try. I would go to the "Smart Shoppers" forum and click on "Used Car Values". there are a couple of folks in the car business that can give you a good idea of what this vehicle is worth.
  • 2007 Ford Fusion SEL 4 cyl, w/ ABS & A/T. MSRP $21,395, paid $19,250 after #1,000 rebate & 2.9% for 36 months. Dealer also waved the $176 Doc fees. In N.J.
  • Just bought an '07 SEL V6 yesterday, picking up tomorrow. I got X-plan pricing so there wasn't any negotiating.

    SEL V6
    Black/Dark Charcoal
    Leather Seats
    Heated Seats
    Traction Assist
    One other option I can't recall - will edit later.

    Also added DIO remote starter - got hosed on that one.

    MSRP: $24,615
    X-Plan: $22,950
    Rebate: $1,000

    My first new car at nearly 34 years old so it should be interesting.
  • Couldn't edit the post - over the time limit.

    The other option was ABS.

    I wonder if I should have leased instead of paying cash. I drive about 25k a year though so I was afraid of going over on mileage.

    The only reason to lease (IMO) is if you want to change cars frequently. Leasing would seem to, perhaps, be more convenient for those who do that, though not necessarily cheaper than buying and trading.

    The lease would include finance costs (they just don't call it "interest"), which you avoid by paying cash.

    my Fusion SEL V6 loaded, sunroof, leather, heated seats, every option available, about 9 months ago now for $23,000 and got %0 for 5 years. I thought I got a good deal, now I'm wondering :cry:
  • Bought my 2007 V6 SEL AWD with the following options:

    Sunroof, spoiler,sirius, basically everything but audiophile and navigation. I paid MSRP at about $27k the dealer was for the most part great but I've dealt with them numerous times. They were a bit pushy trying to sell me an extended warranty but otherwise were great

    Do you feel better now...I assume $23K was not MSRP.

    I would estimate that $23,000 at 0% for 5 years is worth $2000 to $4000. Based that on either financing at 7%, or earning 3.5% after tax, if you would have paid cash.

    I bought my Fusion on March 5th. I bought a D.Blue Pearl Metallic V6 SEL. I added every option except the spoiler, and navigation. MSRP was 28,400 I paid 23,600 but I paid cash so I was able to negotiate the price alot. My price was out the door so no extra costs were made. I did add wheels tires, spoiler, and had my windows tinted within the first week of ownership. I've invested a total of 25,590 and am very happy with my car and added a little customizing to make it more my own.image
  • 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.

  • Hi,
    I purchased a 2006 Ford fusion SE V6 with 18,000 miles. Dark red(merlot)power windows/locks/ABS/16 inch wheels Airbags but no side curtains. I paid 16,977 plus Fees. Is this a typical price. Thanks
  • Bought a new Fusion (finally!) on July 20 from Harrold Ford in Sacramento, CA. Details:

    2007 Ford Fusion SE V6
    Redfire exterior
    Charcoal black interior

    Options:
    Leather seats
    Moonroof
    ABS
    Traction control

    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!

    Congrats on your new Fusion! Sacramento is hot, hot, hot in the summer. Get your windows tinted asap. I live in the NW and have the black leather in my Fusion and OUCH! it gets hot!! I have the silver frost, now wishing I would have gone red.. :cry: Still love the my car though!
  • 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. :)
