Who is the Hot Spanish Girl in the Mark Jacobson Toyota TV Commercial?

UPDATE: We believe this could be Linette De Los Santos who was Miss Florida 2017. Here is a photo.

If you have watched TV in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill or Fayetteville, North Carolina in the last three months you have likely seen the Mark Jacobson Toyota commercial in which a very attractive Spanish girl discusses the sales and deals with Mark Jacobson. The first time you watch the video you may think she is mulatto but she starts speaking Spanish at the end of most commercials.

Some may even think she is Brazilian or Portuguese. We are not aware of the name of this hot actress but we are going to do our best to find out. While she is much different than the attractive blonde woman on the Powers Swain TV commercials, she is very appealing.

If you know the name of this Spanish woman on the Mark Jacobson TV commercials, please comment below.

Do I Need A Social Security Number To Buy A Car In North Carolina?

Want to buy a car but don’t have a social security number for some reason? That is ok, maybe you are an immigrant to the United States and do not have a social security number, you can still buy a car. Many people think you have to get a social security number to buy a car in North Carolina, but that is not true. Here are the facts:

You do not legally need a social security number to buy a car in North Carolina. If a dealer tells you that they cannot sell to you it could be because it takes more work. On the dealer side it does require a longer process to sell to someone without a social security number. Therefore, sometimes they try to avoid them.

Many want to find a car dealer that sells to people without a social security number, and there are several that are happy to sell to immigrants or others who may need to buy a car but do not have a social security number.

Should I Buy Or Lease A Car In Clinton, North Carolina?

Should I buy or lease a car? It is a common question, and each side has its pro’s and con’s. The answer really depends on the vehicle. If you want to, for example, buy or lease a Ford in Clinton, North Carolina, consider the following three criteria:

1. Do you drive a lot of miles, or relatively few miles?

If you drive a lot, a lease may not be for you. Most leases have mileage caps of around 10,000 to 15,000 miles a year. This means that if you drive more than that number of miles, you have to pay a certain amount of money per mile over the cap. That really adds up if you drive a lot. It is for this reason that leases are more common in big cities like New York or San Francisco where people do not drive long distances often. If you live in Clinton, North Carolina, you may not drive much.

2. Do you like to drive a new vehicle every 2 to 3 years?

If you are the type of person who likes to drive a new car every few years, a lease may be a good option for you. Most leases are around 24-36 months, though the terms do vary. This means every few years you can trade in and upgrade to a new vehicle. If you like having access to the latest in technology, you may be the right candidate for a lease.

3. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for?

It is generally agreed that the best financial decision long term is to buy a vehicle. However, this assumes that the person has the finances to afford a higher monthly payment, pay the loan in full, and still own the car for a couple of years. If you want a lower monthly payment, perhaps around 200 dollars or below a month, a lease could be better for you. Most leases are lower in cost than a monthly car payment, sometimes much lower depending on the vehicle.

In Summary

Leasing a vehicle is better for some, but not all. Speak to your financial person or your local Clinton Ford dealer to find out if leasing a vehicle could be good for you, or if it is wiser to buy.

Can I Buy A New Ford F-150 For Under $300 A Month?

The Ford F-150 is a very popular truck, and one of the most popular models of all time. While many people want to own a New F-150, not everyone has the money to spend $400 or $500 a month on a new truck. Therefore, many people have asked: Can I buy a New Ford F-150 for under $300 a month?

The answer is YES. Some dealerships offer New Ford F-150’s for under 300 dollars a month. We found confirmation online of a Ford dealership in Clinton, North Carolina offering a New 2017 Ford F-150 for $300 a month. However, the price strongly depends on the trim of the truck you want.

What does trim mean? Trim is a term used by people in the automotive industry to describe specific cars. Typically every vehicle trim has different features and a slightly different look. For example, the Ford F-150 has several trims, including the following:

  • F-150 King Ranch
  • F-150 Raptor
  • F-150 Platinum
  • F-150 Limited
  • F-150 XL
  • F-150 XLT
  • F-150 Lariat

Not all of these may fall in the price range you are looking for. Some trims are definitely more expensive than others. For example, the model above that is available for $300 a month is a New 2017 Ford F-150 XLT for $24,899. Ford F-150 trucks with the Raptor or King Ranch trims for example, are typically more expensive, and come with a lot of features not available on the other models.

It is also important to know, sometimes F-150 trucks have big discounts available depending on the month. The can be substantial discounts, sometimes over $10,000, and can really bring the price down on a New Ford F-150. Therefore, if you see a price that you are happy with that includes a discount, you may want to grab that deal while you can. You don’t want to deal to disappear on you!

Why is 252-888-2401 Calling Me?

Did you get a phone call or voicemail from a phone number that was 252-888-2401? This is not a scam or a sales call so don’t worry, this could actually be a good thing!

This number is the number of Jonathan Griffin, who is the Sales Manager at Lookout Ford, Ford dealership in Morehead City, NC. We wanted to know why he called us so we looked into it. Jonathan is calling previous customers of Lookout Ford, as well as some members of the community, because he wants to buy their cars. This could potentially be super good news for you. Why? Because:

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma were very destructive and damaged thousands of cars in Texas and Florida beyond repair. The demand for used cars is higher than ever because so many were destroyed. This is why car dealers like Lookout Ford are increasing their inventory by buying people’s used cars, to satisfy this demand in those areas where people lost their cars. Your vehicle is worth a LOT more than it was before Hurricanes Harvey and Irma hit. However, this increase in the value of your car will not last forever. Other people will begin to trade in cars for a newer model vehicle, and this temporary increase in demand will disappear. This means you only have a short time to sell or trade in your car and make this extra money, as well as get a new car.

If you have been thinking about buying a new car, about trading yours in, or even if you haven’t thought about selling your car before, you should call Jonathan and see how much money he is willing to pay for your car. The make and model of the car you have is not important, Jonathan will want to buy your car, even if it isn’t a Ford and is from a totally different manufacturer. If you own something like a New 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, he will want to buy it. Call him now and see if you can upgrade to a brand new car!

Why is Jonathan Griffin from Lookout Ford Calling Me?

Did you recently get a phone call or voicemail from Jonathan Griffin at Lookout Ford? This isn’t a scam and he isn’t trying to sell you anything, this could actually be a good thing for you!

Jonathan Griffin is the Sales Manager at Lookout Ford in Morehead City, NC. People asked us who he was, so we looked into why he is calling. Jonathan is calling people in the community and previous customers of Lookout Ford looking to buy their cars. This could be really good news for you. Here’s why:

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma destroyed thousands of cars in Texas, Florida, and the other states where they hit. The demand for pre-owned vehicles is now very high because so many were destroyed. This is why car dealers like Lookout Ford are calling people looking to increase their inventory. Your used car is worth a LOT more than it was before the hurricanes in Texas and Florida. This increased value in your vehicle will not last forever, however. Other people will begin trading in their cars now and fill this temporary demand in the market, meaning you have limited time to take advantage of this extra value in your current car.

If you have thought in the past about trading in your car for a newer model, or if you haven’t thought about trading it in, you should call Jonathan back and see what he is willing to give you for your car. The make and model of your current car does not matter, Jonathan will be interested in your car, even if it isn’t a Ford and is something like a new or used Jeep Wrangler. Give him a call and see if you can trade in your car to make some money and get into a newer car!

Why is 910-387-1766 Calling Me?

Did you recently receive a phone call or voicemail from the phone number 910-387-1766? Don’t worry, this isn’t a scam, this could actually be a good thing for you!

This number belongs to Nick Autry, Sales Manager at Performance Ford of Clinton, NC. We looked into it, and he is calling previous customers and members of the community looking to buy their cars. This could be very good news for you.

The recent hurricanes destroyed thousands of vehicles in Florida and Texas. Because of this, car dealers like Performance Ford are trying to increase their used vehicle inventory since the demand for used cars is now so high. This means that your used car is likely work a LOT more right now than it was before the inclement weather. However, this increased value will not last long as people take advantage of the demand and trade in their cars for newer models.

If you have thought at all about trading in your car for a nicer model, or even if you haven’t, we highly recommend that you give Nick a call back and see what he is willing to offer you for your car. Your current vehicle does not even need to be a Ford, they will buy any kind of car.

Buying a Ford Car or Truck Near Clayton, North Carolina

If you are from Clayton, North Carolina you know just how much it has grown over the last several decades. What was once a very small North Carolina town is now an extension of Garner and Raleigh. Raleigh has grown into Garner and is making its way into Clayton. When Highway 70 needs a by-pass, you know the area is growing. With that being said, if you want to buy a brand new Ford F150 or a Ford car in Clayton, what are the options?

Anyone from Clayton knows of Matthews Motors and Shumaker Motors but understand that these are used car dealerships. They are not going to have the brand new 2018 Ford F-150 models in the fall of 2017. They could have 2016 and 2017 models that are used, but they are not going to have the newest model Ford vehicles available today.

There are a few Ford dealerships that are close by. These include Classic Ford in Smithfield, Capital Ford in Raleigh, Kenly Ford in Kenly and Performance Ford in Clinton. When looking to get the lowest price on a newer model Ford F150 pickup truck or any type of Ford vehicle, we strongly suggest looking at multiple dealerships. While Performance Ford seems to always give the best customer service and some of the best offers there are always opportunities throughout the state.

Also note that buying a used car a Shumaker Motors or Matthews Motors is an option. That said, buying a used car from a used car dealership is a completely different animal altogether. These types of dealerships do not have the maintenance staff that a Ford Dealership has; nor do they have the inventory. While they may be able to get you something close to what you are looking for, they won’t be able to special order the color and trim you desire.

Do not feel as if driving 100 miles round trip is a waste of money. Most of the time, this trip ends up being well worth it because you can use it as leverage when trying to negotiate a lower price for an F150 or Expedition. You can tell Kenly Ford that Capital Ford is willing to offer you the same vehicle for $2000 less. Most of the time, they will be willing to negotiate with you to meet or match the price. If you live 50 miles away they may beat the price because they know you have to drive to get the vehicle.

When it comes to trade ins or getting money for your current vehicle, this is something else you will have to consider when it comes to working with different dealerships. It may be the case that Classic Ford wants to give you $14,000 for your trade in while Performance Ford is willing to give you $15,500. When all is said and done, you want the loan amount to be the lowest possible number to save you money.

Not only do you want the  loan amount to be the lowest possible number, you also want the interest rate to be as low as possible. Many used car dealerships are not willing to give you the 1.9% or 2.9% interest that a new car dealership is willing to give you. This is something to consider before making a decision to buy from a used car dealer in Clayton, North Carolina.

If you current reside in Clayton, NC where do you buy a new Ford truck or car? Do you drive up to Raleigh or south to Smithfield?

Buying a Car or Truck in Pikeville, North Carolina

Living in Pikeville, North Carolina is not the most exciting thing for many. That said, there are thousands that love this North Carolina town and call it home. Situated in Wayne County, just east of Interstate 795 and north of Goldsboro is Pikeville. There isn’t a whole lot in the town other than a Hardee’s, Pizza Inn, Mini Mart, Dollar General and Autozone. In the town of Pikeville, you are not going to find a large auto dealership. There is always Collier Motors but this is a used car, buy here, pay here lot. If you want a new model vehicle, you are going to have to take a road trip.

Some will trek down to Goldsboro where they will find a few Deacon Jones dealerships as well as Toyota of Goldsboro and Chevrolet of Goldsboro. If you are looking for the lowest prices, it is best to shop around at many different car dealerships in the surrounding area. Note that there are dozens of Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Toyota and Nissan dealerships within an hours drive. If you can save a few thousand dollars by negotiating at a dealership that is 50 or 100 miles away, it is well worth it.

If you travel south on 795 to NC 117 you will make your way into Clinton, North Carolina in less than an hour from Pikeville. This is where you will find a number of great dealerships including Performance Ford and Performance CDJR (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram). With these dealerships being less than 50 miles away, they will be a great way to compare prices with other car dealerships near Pikeville, NC. The best advice we can give is to get a quote from three or four dealerships before deciding on an amount you are willing to pay for a vehicle. Once you do this, you can shop around and look at a number of options.

Let’s say you are shopping for a used Ford F150 and are willing to spend $30,000. By shopping around at several Ford dealerships in Central North Carolina you may find that you have to buy a 2015 or older model. You may also find that you are going to end up have a car payment well above $500 a month if you don’t have any money to put down. These are all things to consider before walking into a car dealership close to Pikeville and demanding that you want a Ford Pickup Truck.

Also note that Raleigh, North Carolina is about an hour drive from Pikeville. You can scour some of the Raleigh area car dealership websites to see what prices are available. Always remember that the price you see on the website is usually never the price you pay for the car or truck you plan on buying. When they add the dealer admin fee, taxes, title and tag along with other insurance and fees, you could be paying 10% to 20% more than the price listed.

This is the exact reason you should look at multiple options before deciding on a new or used car today. You can work with the dealership to determine a walk out the door price so you won’t have to negotiate every time you walk into a Ford, Chevy, Nissan, Dodge or Honda dealership in North Carolina.

Note that some dealerships have discounts for recent graduates, first time car buyers, firefighters, police officers and veterans and military members. If you have a special circumstance, you may find that you can get a discount or a special on a new or used car purchase today. It never hurts to ask. If you are in Pikeville, NC, look at your options and figure out what options are available before signing anything. Once you sign, you are going to have to start paying on that vehicle and could end up losing money as soon as you drive it off the lot.
