When you are buying a used car, you have to add the cost of the first year’s insurance to the price of the car. The total cost of the car is, thus, the price of the car, and the cost of insuring it for a year. It is always best to know the average rates of insurance of the car you are coveting before you take the leap.

|State||Average Yearly Insurance ($)||Median Price ($)||Insurance Percentage (%)|
If you live in one of the states listed in the table above, your cost of buying a used Fusion is lower than $16,000.
If you live in one of the other states, you can buy the Fusion from the state closest to yours where it is cheaper and have it shipped to your home.

If you live in one of the states where the Fusion costs more than $18,000 (such as Nebraska or Alaska), having it shipped might be a wise decision.
