I bought a used 2017 Fusion Energi Titanium with 14,000 miles on it in Nov. 2017.
It was a fleet car used 10 months. (sept 2016-July 2017)
It listed for $35,300. Has moonroof, nav and Ruby Red extras.
Also, it was Ford Certified Used.
I paid 19,985 with a $400 paper work fee.
It’s been great so far. Best decision I made. I sold my 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid with 108,000 miles on it and got $3000 more than I would have got on a trade.
New price for the exact same model was 29,900 and the wanted to steal my trade. So I saved $5600 + the 6% tax of $600+=$6200
I thought it was worth about $6000 to give up 14,000 miles.
So if I add the $3000 more I got for my cars, I saved $9000 cash.
Well worth what I did. It only took me 3 months to sell my old car which was in mint condition with no dings or mechanical problems. The buyer of my used hybrid was very happy. He has a F150 that guzzles.
Great second commute car. It was loaded with every option and everything works.
My net new cost was $24,500 with the tax credit + $1800 sale tax
My net buying used was $15,500. No tax credit and 14,000 miles + $1200 sales tax
All real numbers with a dealer I know and bought from before.
He couldn’t give me much for my trade because he was going to take it to the auction. They don’t sell cars with over 100,000 miles on them. So I was stuck to sell my used car.
The Fusion has warranty till Sept 2019 and also the Ford Certified coverage for 100,000 miles on power train and gas engine components, hybrid has 100,000 miles.
I did not purchase the extended warranty since most of the expensive stuff is covered for the 100,000 miles.
I’ll chance the Nav, and other components for now.
Oh, I also bought a second Ford EOM Charger used on EBay for $200. Works great I keep that one in the car and charge at work or on the go. Saves me even more, my commute is 19.3 miles each way and I can usually make in each way sometimes with 3 miles to spare. Might get more when it warms up.
