RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

You have to be very aware of who knows what. When we asked about vehicles at the Mexican Consulate they were very up front about the fact that they knew nothing about it and that the information was not available to them because it was not something that they covered. They were basically immigration. This was further illustrated when we started planing our menaje de casa. Yes, you get the final paperwork done through them, but it turns out that there is a defined period of time after getting your residency and when you can use it. They weren't really aware of that until we were ready to do ours. We missed the window, but it worked out well anyway. Vehicles? I'm with gtla9111. Don't think you can nationalize anything of the age of your Honda, and when the time comes for your trailer/RV, you will have the same limitations. When you figure in the cost of the customs broker, the taxes and fees, you are still better off buying something here. You can buy a brand new March for under 200,000p. IMSS-check it out. For our age, it is about $465 US a year, each. Many preexisting conditions are excluded. It's better than nothing, and in some areas I hear it's great. Here, for example, Karl has it. He needs to have his gall bladder removed. Free with his IMSS, big incision, etc. At the private hospital, arthroscopically, it's $450 US all included, minimal recovery time. He opted to go the private route. Lots of homework to be done. I'm with Talleyho69. It is so much easier just to be a permanent resident and do things that we do in Mexico. Buy a new Mexican car or even used. I've always purchased used cars in Mexico and with my limited but wise knowledge, I have always picked a winner. You can do all the same things when purchasing new or used as in the states. As for IMSS, I pay what TAlleyho69 pays. I can opt to go social or private. My cardiologist (private) still charges me $100 U.S. each year for full check-up including stress test, EKG, X rays, full blood work, etc. He is the medical director of San Lucas Hospital in Monterrey. If I need a bypass, I can go social and because he works in the social system as well, he can be my surgeon. A pacemaker in the U.S. is roughly $30,000. In Mexico, less than $3000. I'm not rich, but I don't want to be one of those ex-pats that is constantly driving or flying back and forth to the U.S. every time I have some kind of leak or blowout. I live here, this is what we do and what we have.

RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

You can tow in anything you like. You can't nationalize anything more than 9 years old and it must be a NAFTA vehicle. Actually they have reciently change they rules you cna now nationalize 2000 to 2016 years according to Sonai Diaz website http://www.soniadiaz.mx/nationalizing-cars.html I don't care how popular the woman is or her new book, it's funny business.

RE: Permanent Resident and bringing in a Motorhome

I doubt it seriously. Why would the fact that it is a motorhome make any difference? Something fishy here being able to come in and out of the country as permanent residents with a foreign plated rv. If it is plated in the U.S. or Canada it could easily be confiscated. Mexican plates cannot be issued unless you show proof of permanent residency.

RE: New phone dialing requirements

Replace 1-800 with 001-880. Replace 1-888 with 001-881. Replace 1-877 with 001-882. Replace 1-866 with 001-883. Replace 1-855 with 001-884.

RE: New phone dialing requirements

From the U.S. and Canada you will need to dial the usual prefix of 011 exit code and 52 country code plus the 10 digits.

RE: Mayan Temples Trip - Safe?

I'm not sure why, but when rvers have come to visit they are reluctant to ride in my car :h We resemble that remark:) (But we adjusted because you were able to show us so much in a short period of time) You're a good man! I have to admit, I am slowly changing my ways. I'm down to about 120 kmp so maybe by the time you guys return it will be around the speed limit :)

RE: Mayan Temples Trip - Safe?

It's 80 kph on the highway from my town to Monterrey. I drive 140 kph. Keeping up with traffic. I drove down to SMA on Tuesday. It's posted on Hwy 57 between 80 and 100 in some parts. I stuck to 120 kph all the way. I'm not sure why, but when rvers have come to visit they are reluctant to ride in my car :h

RE: Baja Seasons RV Park near Ensenada: anyone? anyone?

Looks like it is cheaper to just rent a cabin. The front row rv site is $35 a night and the cabin is $40. The pictures look great.

Has anyone used their FMCA Assist policy? If so, how did it work and were you happy with the results?

RE: D day, June 6, 1944 - where was Mexico

Tepetapan, sorry, I forgot to mention that. I don't know that museum. Looks like we need to visit.

RE: D day, June 6, 1944 - where was Mexico

There are four military museums in Mexico. Museo del Ejército y Fuerza Aérea Mexicanos “Bethlemitas” Mexico City Museo del Ejército y Fuerza Aérea Guadalajara Museo del Ejercito y Fuerza Aérea Puebla Museo Militar De Aviación Zumpango, Edomex Every year I post on my blog and FB about the 201st Squadron. Mexico played an important role just as did many other Latin American countries, mostly in accepting Jewish refugees.

RE: Disclosure when selling

What goes around comes around. Not every business deal is a win-win situation. I look at it from the standpoint of how much pleasure I derived from the use of my rv. They all have had signs of use but it was pleasurable use and I think the buyers could see that. It's nice to be nice and as others have said, sleep well and know that the buyer will be a happy camper.

RE: Alexa and home security.

"As The Post has written, voice-based devices like Amazon's Echo and Google Home are always "awake," passively listening for commands to activate. ... Google and Amazon keep a copy of every conversation. Amazon has not disclosed how many times users have improperly been granted access to another person's recordings." At home, I sometimes use bad language, talk bad about politicians and even say dirty things. I don't want them recorded. I guess I shouldn't care. I have heard Alexa being asked questions and I kind of like it.

RE: Ferries From Baja To Mainland

Great, it worked! I still wonder what's happening with Baja Ferries. We saw them in port when we were in Mazatlan in February. SUV with travel trailer under 9 meters, 10,000 pesos one way.

Ferries From Baja To Mainland

I'm looking at a winter trip from Monterrey to Mexicali and down through Baja California and back to the mainland via ferry. I checked Baja Ferries and it says, "no further sailings". Any idea what is happening with ferry crossings from Baja? Something I always wanted to do and now it appears it won't happen unless I'm not reading things right. Any help? Thanks in advance.

RE: Roaming and boondocking in Mexico

Living close to the border (just south of Monterrey), we have boondocked all over the northern states. Nuevo Leon has some great state parks as well as the state of Chihuahua. We are slowly venturing back into Tamaulipas after years of missing it and the eastern coast of the state. Boondocking is great in Mexico. Not many restrictions and after 19 years boondocking here we can say we have had no issues.

RE: Slow Bridge Crossings

We came back to Mexico last Thursday and a lot has changed at the Laredo Bridge II (coming off I-35). As we crossed I chose the Nada A Declarar lane and an agent began waving his flashlight at us. I stopped and he came out and said I needed to go to the right first. Did that, and it is the new Aduana patio which was finished a year ago according to them. They checked the serial number on the trailer and then we went through the far right lane that has no stoplight and you drive right through without inspection as it has already been done. Not sure what happens with foreign vehicles, ours is Mexican plated. The whole bridge crossing was five minutes and off we went for the Donoldo Colossio Avenue and then on to Hwy 85 to Monterrey and drove straight through the city using the new designated truck route. Nice changes at both the bridge and through Monterrey to Santiago.

RE: Possible cancellation of 60 RV unit caravan

Beautiful places are not defined by country. Unfortunately, boundaries keep people from appreciating the world´s beauty. I'd love to rv in Afghanistan and Iran. They have beautiful mountains and traditional customs. Unfortunately, it's human beings, not nature, that make that almost impossible to do.

RE: Slow Bridge Crossings

Colombia had only one lane open. Long waits are something new in the last two weeks because of changes we can't talk about here. As SideCarFlip said, it is only going to get worse. Yes, Semana Santa does play a role in this. Beaches from Matamoros to Tampico are packed this week as people are avoiding the crossing. I get tired of the endless questions about how I was born in the U.S., why I would want to live in Mexico, about being afraid, etc. So sad that Hispanics along the U.S./Mexico border don't even know their own roots and they are only miles away.
