  1. I have a car that has Mexico City plates. Does anyone know if I can do the emission testing in Guadalajara?
  2. What I was told on a tour several months ago that there were two tiers, one at $4,000 and the other $10,000. The $4,000 was not refundable and included breakfast only on the plan. With the $10,000 plan you could sell it to someone else or upon death transferred to the family. It included a certain number of meals per week which was breakfast, lunch or dinner. Both included some other benefits (?) but I don't remember because I was definitely not interested.
  3. It looks like La Pueblita has been pretty much at a standstill for several months. The casitas appear to be pretty much finished but the apartments are a very long way from completion.
  4. There must be because I smell smoke and can't even see the south side of the lake.
  5. I went to Walmart yesterday afternoon and the big sign out front only says no one under 15 allowed and no mention of over 60. I was also turned down two days ago at the Oxxo in La Canacinta but went to the one in Ajijic close to Prisa Paint and no problems.
  6. It was my regular run to the same Oxxo out west since it opened a number of years ago and they know me. Sad state of affairs. My birthday is tomorrow and I will be 59! 😜
  7. I was just denied entry to an Oxxo!!! This is ridiculous. It's called discrimination. This won't stop anything!
  8. Thanks for the link. I have filled out the forms but now I am having trouble with the payment page. I want to pay for 3 years. I clicked on the Derecho de Residente Temporal (DRT) but it only allows me to pay for one year. All of the choices for choosing tramite cost appear to be the same. What do I do now to obtain the form to pay the correct amount?
  9. Can you give me the web address to the form I need to fill out for temporal. I went to Phoenix last year to obtain the first year and now I need to renew for the additional years.
  10. Thanks to all of you for your input. I tried Pablo's Garage first. I walked over and we talked to someone through the locked gate. He said they were busy so they don't answer the phone. We left our number and no one called back. While getting an overnight charge at LTH I noticed the shop that Happy Jillin recomended right next door. We talked to Moises and arranged to come back the next morning with the car with the charged battery. What an excellent recommendation by Happy Jillin!!! Sure enough it was a shredding alternator belt. Two replaced belts later and back on the road. What a really nice experience and will definitely use AutoFix and Moises in the future.
  11. I'll try the cell. We walked up there yesterday because the land line isn't answered. We were told that they were very busy. We told the worker (through a locked gate) what we needed and he said he would have Pablo call us. So far, no returned call. I guess he is too busy. Next step, take the battery out get it charged or replaced so we can drive it to another mechanic for the alternator problem. We will try the other suggestions for mechanics given on the other thread. Thanks all for you help.
  12. Does anyone have a current phone number. I need to call and make an appointment and can't just drive over there because my car won't make it. Thanks
