    I would trust the cars.gov website. The only things I can think of is that maybe its eligible for the $3500, not the $4500, but if they're willing to give you the CARS amount on paper for your trade, then they have to deal with it, but unless you get that amount taken off in writing, don't know that I'd just take their word for it.
  • I see that Ford recently raised the base price of their Fusion by $355.
    Anyone know why? Is this for the new Michelin tires?
  • I'm having a devil of a time trying to find out the invoice price for a car I found on my local dealer's lot. It's a 2010 Milan Premier model, and the window sticker shows the following:
    MSRP 24320
    202A package 3035
    V-6 1630
    Destination 725
    202A package discount 1040

    Total 28670

    According to my insurance company's buying service, the base MSRP should be 25400, and the invoice is 24007. Edmunds says the base invoice should be 22692 and the base MSRP is 24675. The only possible reason I can find is that the insurance company doesn't specify the Premier trim, whereas the Edmunds site specifically says that this is the Premier trim level. Even so, I can't make any of the numbers match up. Is it possible that there has been a change to the base MSRP (and the invoice) price since this particular car was built? I don't know how long it has been on the dealer's lot, but if it is one of the earlier 2020 models that they received, then there could have been a price hike since they got it.

    I'd like to know what the exact invoice price is so that I can have a base from which to bargain.

    I have also found conflicting reports as to whether there is still a cash incentive from Ford on this car. I have seen some sites that say that there is a $1000 incentive, others that say it is $500, and other sites that don't mention a cash incentive at all. Does anyone know what the true story is on factory cash incentives on the Fusion/Milan? Thanks for the help.

    They now have 0% for 60 months on all Fusions and Milans except the Hybrid. I found out on Monday, last night put $500 down on a Fusion Sport, just waiting for it to be delivered and hoping the 0% goes through. I finally decided to upgrade my car from a Camry Hybrid to a Fusion. I might lose 8 MPG, but I gain a much nicer car.
  • I got an offer for a 2010 Fusion I4, SEL, all options (302A, nav) except 18" wheels for $25,277 + TTL (includes $1500 cash back). Seems like a decent deal, is it? Thanks!
  • acdiiacdii Posts: 753
    Consumer Reports bottom line price(which works) shows the SEL I4 fully loaded as you speced to be $26,270. What was the MSRP on it?
  • Just purchased a 2008 SE 2.3 L, automatic (basic SE model, w/cloth) with only option Sirius for $13,995 from a Ford dealership in Maryland. The car was a dealer loaner, with only 12,400 miles. I focused on buying a used Fusion/Milan because of good reliability reports and Ford's survivability and ideally wanted a 6 cylinder but most available were former rentals between 30-45 k miles. I found buying used, with the objective of saving a few thousand, difficult in this strange economy, with evidently low inventories of used vehicles propping up prices to some degree.

    I would like to have bought a new 2010 fusion with engine, other improvements but couldn't make the stretch for a second car replacement (replacing '95 Taurus). Hopefully I got a good deal. Love the car thus far and actually for most of my driving situations I am glad I got the 4 cylinder for better MPG.
  • From what I understand anyone who is freinds with a Ford Employee or retire can ask them for a X plan pin # It is called Ford Family and Freinds program. It is not as good as there A plan but good. I think its $200.00 over the real invoice and fees are capped at $75.00.

    Have not seen many prices posted here lately so...

    Purchased a 2010 Fusion SEL 4cyl with 302A only:

    MSRP: $26,850
    Edmunds invoice: $24,634
    FDAF: +$478
    Ford Invoice: $25,112

    Price: $24,745 + $120 Adv fee + TTL

    Price does not include rebate. ( I went with the $1,000 + 0.0% for 36 mths).
    $23,745 with rebate.
    How does this look?
  • I leased my 2010 Fusion V6 SEL about 2 weeks ago.
    I am paying $380/month for 39 months, zero down, 15,000 miles per year.
    All the taxes were rolled into the monthly payment.

    I have to tell any prospective Fusion buyers to take a LONG test drive before you lay down your cash. The car drives a performs great but so far the seats are REALLY uncomfortable. No matter how many adjustments I make to the 8-way power drivers seat, I'm still uncomfortable! I'm hoping they just need to be worked-in or I am going to be one unhappy camper for the next 39 months!
  • I bought a 2010 Fusion SEL with the 302A package and rear spoiler.

    MSRP 27,145
    Invoice 24,891
    Incentives 2,000
    True invoice is then 22,891(obviously this doesn't include hold-back etc. but I don't factor that in)

    I paid 23,400 so about $500 over invoice. 24,475 if you include the 75 documentation fee.

    I never thought I would pay that much over invoice but I just wanted to be done with it.

    Dealer is also paying to get my car shipped in from another state.

    I need a car and the dealer offered me an amount I was happy with for my trade in so I just took the deal. Also its less than the TMV of what others are paying according to edmunds.
  • I love my new Fusion,
    I found out from a friend of mine that you can shop around for the Ford extended warranty and you do not have to buy it from the dealer you purchased your car from.He told me to call Midwest Superstore in Hutchinson Kansas they are a Ford and Toyota Dealer ship.They gave him a great deal on his Toyota warranty.
    So I did just that.To make a long story short my friend was right I bought a 5 year 75,000 miles Premium Care Ford warranty for only $850.00
    The sales person was very nice and gave me his best price and did not push.I told him I needed to talk to my wife Jerry told me that was fine just give him a call when I was ready.and it would only take a few min to do over the phone.
    I saved over half of what I could have paid.
    You can do the same no matter what state you live in on any Ford with in the 3 years and 36,000 miles
    Call Midwest Superstore at 1100 east 30th Hutchinson, Ks 67502
  • "MSRP: $26,850
    Edmunds invoice: $24,634
    FDAF: +$478
    Ford Invoice: $25,112
    Price: $24,745 + $120 Adv fee + TTL "

    Lazzo: I know its probably to late for your deal but it looks like the dealer charged you twice for the Advertise fee. FDAF (Ford Dealers Advertise Fee) $478 then they charged you again Adv fee $120.00
  • "Ford extended warranty"

    Does anyone know how long I can wait to buy the Ford extended warranty?
  • acdiiacdii Posts: 753
    You should be able to purchase it any time while the car is still under the factory warranty. I pretty much did the same thing when I bought a Prius, only did it in such a way that I actually made money. I bought the warranty when I bought the car, cost $1900. Got home and later found where I could get it for $850, called in to cancel the warranty, instead they knocked $1200 off and sent me a check, otherwise they would have to dicker around with refinancing. So I got a $1200 loan @ 2.9%, When I traded in the car and called in to cancel the warranty, I got a $1400 refund. Not a bad deal. I also broke even on the trade of the Prius. For once I actually made money buying a used car.
  • " I bought the warranty when I bought the car, cost $1900. Got home and later found where I could get it for $850"

    I hope the dealers out there are paying attention to the power of the internet. They tried to steal over $1000.00 from you. I bet they were shocked that another dealer could sell you the same policy for a grand less ;) . In any other business that would be called theft by deception.
  • It blew me away when I called Midwest Ford in Hutchinson ,Ks and they said The price for the 5 year 75,000 Premium care was $850.00 I ask him how he could do that price he said they sell alot of warrantys.
    well I am glad I called like my friend told me to all ways good to save and get a great deal

    Considering that 5 yr/75K mi is adding only 15,000 miles to the drive train coverage and 2 years/39K mi to whatever else it covers, it is not that surprising that they can still make a reasonable profit at that $850 price (as opposed the the outrageous profit that usually results from over-priced extended warranties).
  • Finally pulled the plug a couple months ago: Fusion SEL, V6, 302A, navigation - $25,500 + TTL (including $1500 cash back). Took some negotiation as I originally wanted the I4 but they had the V6 on the lot. Buying experience was pretty good, much better than when I bought a Camry 6 years ago. Love the car, the Sync and Nav are great.
  • Yes
    You can Buy the ford warranty as long as you are in the 3 years and 36,000 miles when I called Midwest superstore Kansas thats what they told me but he said did not no what price would be in 2 years. Jerry gave me a good deaI at $850.00 Never the less I Like my new car lots Ford has done very good with the Fusion

    Ok I;'m in the market for a new car, I'm looking at the Fusion SE I-4 with the 6 spd Manual and with the following options. The 202A (sunroof and sync) and the 14C which is the Appearance package (also known as Sport Package) I see on Edmunds the invoice is $21,543 without the 2K rebate from form, so with the 2K rebate makes it $19,543. So what can someone really pay for this model? I'm in the Phoenix,AZ area.
  • I have a friend that works for Ford and I got a friends and family deal (X plan) I paid $200.00 over invoice = $75.00 fees. Part of the dealers invoice has a Ford advertising fee of any where between $300.00 to $500.00 that you will have to deal with. but thats it.

    I'm also looking at the 2010 Fusion. Is there a $2000 rebate? I thought it was $1000.
  • "I'm also looking at the 2010 Fusion. Is there a $2000 rebate? I thought it was $1000"

    I believe its $2000.00 if you do your own financing OR $1000.00 + low APR fiance from Ford Motor Credit
    When I bought mine I took the rebate and got 5 year loan for 3.6% APR from a local bank.

    I got this quote:

    2010 Fusion SEL I4 (no additional options)
    Edmunds invoice: $23,072
    Dealer price: $21,690 (with $2000 rebate) + TTL

    How does this sound?
  • "Dealer price: $21,690 (with $2000 rebate) + TTL"

    It looks like the dealer is making $608.00 + the hold back money which is 2% or 3% of sticker price. If I were you I would take the $21,690 and add your tax and add about $50.00 for title and tags and what ever that comes up to offer them that as a OTD (out the door price) if you do not get the OTD they will add fees here fees there and before you know it you have been had.

    Example
    21,690.00 +
    1409.50 (6.5% tax)
    50.00 (transfer current plate and title fee)
    ___________
    $23149.50 OTD

    That way they can not sneak anything in your payment because the truth in lending form will say total purchase price. If it was me I would take $200.00 off that offer and wait till they jumped on it.

    Hello,

    I just signed a deal for a 2010 Fusion SEL 4 cyl with 301A option (moon/tune) in Boston, MA. Here is the breakdown:

    $24,546 Price
    -$4,800 Trade in (2001 Accord EX with 100K miles)
    -$1,000 Ford Accord trade incentive
    -$2,500 Ford Rebates
    $1015.38 6.25% sales tax
    $234 Title, registration, doc fees
    $17,495 OTD total

    Is this a good deal?
  • Nazirv:
    Looks like a sweet deal to me. You are going to love that car.
  • My '05 Camry just turned 96k miles and it is time for a new car. I have been bouncing back between a '10 Camry and '10 Fusion. I am looking at a '10 Fusion SE manual with Sun & Sound + spoiler for a MSRP of 22815. What would be a great deal right now OTD? I qualify for 2k in rebates plus another 1k if I trade in the '05 Camry.

    Shoot for anywhere between 21500 and 22700 for this one before incentives. You may be able to get it for 19700 +TTL after incentives. Check the local incentives for financing, if you get a really low interest rate and a low down payment, it may save you more money than the incentives do.
