RE: Ripped off at Chevron

A friend was just double charged on his credit card at the pemex station just south of the San Miguel toll booth in Los mochis. This si the one opposite the access road to El Jito RV park. May or may not have been a scam attempt.

RE: Ripped off at Chevron

yes, I am aware of this scam. The guy was a magician, so good I was not sure of myself. Until another rv in our group told mne he was sure it had happened to him, I had my doubts.

Ripped off at Chevron

Ripped off at chevron station on 15 D southbound about 100 km north of Los Mochis. A short (5 ft 5) attendant there is a master at the 50 for 500 peso switch. I was not 100% sure I had been scammed until another in my group also had the same thing happen to him after he fueled up, so now I am sure. I can extract this guys picture from my dash cam, so I am going to launch a complaint with the chevron head office.

Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

2 bodies believed (not confirmed yet) to be those of James & Michelle butler have been found in Texas. There are reports that their RV was spotted being driven into Mexico ( a Texas Crossing) by someone else. Its is a 2018 silver chev pickup pulling a Cedar Creek trailer. New Hampshire plates. T533534. If you spot this rig DO NOT approach anyone, and call the police in Texas 365-595-8500 and try to report it to the nearest mexican police station as well. https://www.mexicocaravans.com/images/texas.jpg

RE: TIP problems

There were considerable problems last season with on line permits that seemed to coincide with the change in government. I too have seen reports of people being refused permits with 1 tons this season. All i can suggest is printing out the SAT regulations and pointing out page 22 where it states cargo capacity and maybe print out the page off the banjercito site where it also states that (The spanish version (the English version mistakingly states GVW) All theses documents are available at https://www.mexicocaravans.com/border.html If you can take your truck empty to a scale, preferably an official one and get it weighed empty which will usually come in at less than 7710 lbs or 3500 kg, it is not a bad idea. Any official piece of paper showing weights can help.

RE: AT&T just came out with a deal on cells that work in mexico

A few weeks ago I was shopping for a phone plan that would work in Mexico and AT&T’s plan required that more than 50% of the months calls must originate in the U.S. or they will terminate the service. Since we will be in Mexico for 4 months and 100% of our calls would be from there the manager of the AT&T store we were at said their plans wouldn’t work for us. Is this a new plan without the requirement that 50% of the monthly calls originate from the U.S.? I have been using it for a year and hardly any of my calls originate in the US.

AT&T just came out with a deal on cells that work in mexico

AT&T has just come out with a limited offer for its US-Canada-Mexico cell plans with 8 gig of data. $300 US if you prepay for one year. That is $25 a month. It is the same plan I am on at $50 a month ($40 actually as I prepay). I am assuming its a one shot deal. https://www.att.com/buy/wireless/prepaid/plans I am trying to take advantage of this, but I think I have to get a new number which I don't want to do.

RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

True, but that was not my original premise. First i was confused if Japanese made vehiclkes could even get a 180 day TIP.I was not planning to import the vehicle in permanent, although the thought has occured to me if I get resident status. Easier to buy a car in Mexico, however.

RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

If I get perm then I can still drive vehicles my wife brings in. If she goes temporal in 4 years that is 8 years total. I will be 78. Probably fly and rent by then

RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

Or you could buy a Made in America Honda or Toyota and have no worries. I have a 2008 I bought new with only 60K mile son it, I would be crazy to get rid of it.

RE: Japanese cars in Mexico

Hopefully this information is current, the only date given is in 2013. I hate to be the skeptic, but we've learned a lot since we have moved here. Since you are planning to get your temporary residency, why don't you just buy a vehicle here? They are significantly less expensive than they are in the US, and tend to have very low mileage, depending upon where you buy them. We are on our second vehicle. The first was purchased to pull our 8 foot cargo trailer *Mexico plated) to the US and back, and the second when we realized that the Durango was way too big for town and sucked gas. Love our Escape and the dogs fit nicely. Just things to consider. I intend to get either temporal 0r permanente, but I wont have it til later in the season, have to go to the consulate in Vancouver do the pre approval, then fly back in Jan. My intention is to tow my honda in my wifes name, leave the motorhome in storage down there and use the car to drive home. Since it is on a dolly, I may have to add the dolly to its TIP and tow it home empty. I can delay my wife getting resindente for aocuple of years, that will give us at least 6 years we can leave the motorhome down there. I am hoping I may be able to get my wife under my IMSS, but I doubt it. However she is 6 years younger and the travel insurance not so insurmountable as mine. Eventually we will either nationlaize the motorhome or just fly and rent.

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

RE: Permanent Resident and bringing in a Motorhome

I have been stopped in Sonara on hwy 15 and had my permits examined. This is why I wont attempt this unless I have something firm from SAT. The insurance issue is another matter.
