  1. I will be driving from the U.S. to Chapala/Ajijic in a couple of weeks and will need to purchase Mexican car insurance. The rates vary quite a bit for similar coverage - from about $350 (U.S) to $500 for six months of coverage, but I can find no information on the companies themselves and how likely they are to actually pay a claim. Do any of you have a company you've had good experiences with and would recommend?
  2. I am curious as to how many of the US plated vehicles in the AJijic/Chapala area are illegal in both Mexico and the US due to expired US plates and expired TIP's. In walking around the area I see many very outdated US plates on vehicles. Any guesses?
  3. I am moving to Ajijic in May with my personal belongings and my small dog. I am driving because I do not want to put my dog in cargo and she is too big to travel in the cabin. This is my question. Can I bring my car into Mexico if it has a lien (loan) on it? Thanks.
  4. [I posted this yesterday with imprecise and possibly confusing visa references, thank you mudgirl for the clarification!] Hello everyone, I'm wondering if anyone has any *recent* experience registering a mexican car on an tourist visa? I have read seriously conflicting reports on the matter for Jalisco, including one post on this site, but all from a few years back. I've asked here in Guadalajara at a Recaudadora office, and they told me I could not without an FM2, but then I read posts by people in PV and Chapala who said that they have, so long as they have proof of residence. Has anyone done so? Would it be possible to buy a car in Guadalajara and then take it to register it in Chapala or PV? Thank you!
  5. I AM GOING PERMANENT AND WANT TO GIVE MY US PLATED CAR TO MY DAUGHTER IN THE NORTHEAST. I WAS THINKING OF DRIVING TO LAREDO AND PAYING FOR A SHIPPING COMPANY TO HAUL IT UP TO THE NORTHEAST. ANY SUGGESTIONS OF MOVING COMPANIES IN LAREDO, I COULD CALL UP FOR PRICES? IF IT WAS THE NORTHWEST, I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO MAKE THE DRIVE BUT THE NORTHEAST IS JUST TOO CONGESTED. ALSO IS IT FEASIBLE TO HAVE SOMEONE ELSE DRIVE THE CAR UP TO THE HAULING COMPANY AFTER GOING THROUGH THE BORDER? PLEASE PM ME.
  6. Hi Do I need to make a TIP if staying only in Nuevo Laredo? And if I want to drive from there to Colombia bridge or to Piedras Negras? More specifically - I am now in Nuevo Laredo. my TIP expires in a couple of days and my tourist permit a day before that. I want to return the TIP, leave the car in Mexico, cross over to the States and return to Mexico after a few days or a week to take the car (and probably get back with it into the states. for some bureaucratic reason I can't yet bring it back to the States - it's registration is suspended and a few more days are required for it to be reinstated.) Thanks
  7. Sorry but for sale ads not permitted on this board as stipulated by the board's owners. You can post this in the classified. Edited by moderator
  8. I noticed some chewing has been done under the hood of my car and wondered if anyone knows of a good deterrent for critters, especially those gathering nesting materials. I heard that moth balls might help but have not seen them. Thanks
  9. Some people have taken their foreign plated vehicles out of Mexico but for whatever reason did not cancel their temporary import permit at the border. People should always cancel their TIP but many times it is not feasible to make that long trek back to the border and have to cross over and cross back. Benefits of canceling are receiving your deposit back (if you cancel permit before expiration and / or timely done extensions), being able to temporarily import another foreign plated vehicle into Mexico and not having any future worry or hassle due to the Mexican government thinking your car is still in Mexico. The Mexican consulates in the US have special days where they will be canceling permits at their US based consulates in the following cities and dates for the rest of 2015: Denver Thursday and Friday October 8 and 9 2015 Houston Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday October 14, 15 and 16, 2015 Dallas Friday, Saturday and Sunday October 23, 24 and 25, 2015 Sacramento Tuesday and Wednesday November 3 and 4, 2015 Los Angeles Thursday and Friday October 29 and 30, 2015 Phoenix Thursday and Friday November 12 and 13, 2015 Chicago Thursday, Friday and Saturday December 3, 4 and 5, 2015 http://www.sat.gob.mx/aduanas/vehiculos/Paginas/default.aspx

  11. As you may have read when I broke my story in November, 2013 regarding 2014 new taxes and issues, I stated "Also, customs is going to be checking the value of imported goods more closely and communicating with the countries where merchandise is leaving, to check declared values. People may be more likely to get caught if their car nationalization pedimento says the car is worth just $10,000 pesos, while it clearly is worth much more." Customs did exactly this and is seizing property of 9 importers and shut down over 100 for defrauding the Mexican government out of more than $3,000,000 dollars as well as providing falsified papers saying the cars were legally exported from the US.

  12. I will be travelling to the USA and Canada in the near future with my newly Mexican plated car. I have Mexican insurance but it does not provide enough insurance in the US and Canada. Does anyone know who I could go through to get sufficient insurance?
