Too Early To Tell, But So Far We Love It
October 22, 2018
We're in the market for a new hybrid, which is totally out of the norm for me. The car I was originally in the market for was a Hyundai Ioniq due to Hyundai's reliability record and warranty. There were no more 2018's available in colors or features that we liked and 2019 models we're just out and no programs available yet. Since my sister has a 2013 Fusion hybrid and loves hers I decided to take a look. When I stopped by the dealership we got the car from, they only had one Energi in stock that didn't have a deposit on and I immediately was attracted to it since it was my favorite color, red. Looking at it's features it had it all over the Ioniq, but was almost $7k more. Since it was the end of the model year Ford had offered $10k off on a lease if acquired by 9/30/2018. Since I was not interested in leasing another vehicle I inquired about purchasing it instead. The discount was only $3k off on a purchase so I decided to lease then buy it out after the lease's end. This resulted in a deal I couldn't refuse. The car will end up costing $4-5k less than the Ioniq. The only thing I do not like about the car is the lack of trunk space, it's more like an oversized glove box.
