Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Cash Car Convert
My wife and I finally bought our third used car, after thinking about it for a couple of months, and just in time. My mother-in-law arrived tonight. So, we won't have to do the car shuffle.
After thinking of something sporty or maybe small and super economical, we finally decided on something in the middle. Really practical. We bought a 2010 Ford Fusion SEL for $9,500.
The owner had already bought a new Ford Edge and was ready, though not desperate, to sell.
Here are the details from the ad that caught my attention. Can you tell why it did?
2010 Ford Fusion SEL:
- Sangria Red
- Beige leather interior
- 2.5L V4 engine, has good power and gas mileage
- 80,736 miles
- Microsoft SYNC voice-activated communications
- power windows/locks/mirrors
- keyless remote entry
- cruise control
- tilt/telescoping steering column
- AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system
- 60/40 split/folding rear seat
- AdvanceTrac stability/traction control
- anti-lock brakes
- front/front-side/side-curtain airbags
- SIRIUS satellite radio
- redundant steering wheel controls and fog lamps
- dual-zone auto climate control
- full-power and heated front seats
- leather wrapped steering wheel
- Moon and Tune Package ($1525 MSRP) - power moon roof and a Sony audio system with surround sound, AM/FM stereo/multi(6)-CD player, Sirius satellite and MP3 capability, 12 speakers and 390 watts
- Add-on pin-striping
This is a one-owner, non-smoker, well cared for vehicle in very good condition inside and out as demonstrated by the accompanying pictures. No accidents, always garaged at home and office, serviced at all scheduled maintenance intervals with supporting records. Please refer to the free CARFAX report I provided an url to above as it backs up the quality of this vehicle. Recent maintenance includes new brake pads and resurfaced rotors in September 2014 and 2 new premium Michelin tires in October 2014. The vehicle is in perfect working order and is truly in drive away and enjoy condition. This particular vehicle has been very dependable, carries high safety ratings, and the 2010 Ford Fusion was the 2010 Motor Trend Car of the Year. It would make a great first car for someone. Car is being sold only because it is being replaced by a new SUV.
Original MSRP was $25,595 (please reference included window sticker image), asking $10,000. I will not be accepting any trades or offering financing, full payment only at time of purchase.
