  1. Ford Edge Cars for Sale in Jalisco - soloautos.mx Terrible mileage on these but if you don't drive a lot, I think this is a nice vehicle.
  2. True enough. You could stay FM3 forever by just renewing every year... or go on to FM2 after 5 years but still have to renew every year... or go on to Inmigrado after 5 years of FM2 and never have to renew again ... or become a Citizen and not renew every year but gained the opportunity to vote. Never really understood why Mexico gave up all those renewal fees. And still do not understand why people cling to a NOB vehicle either. Sigh.
  3. But Rick, it is not just a new thing with Permanente so "caught" is probably not the right terminology. There were choices to be made previously as well... you could have a foreign plated car with an FM3 or an FM2 but you could NOT have one when you became Inmigrado (now called Permanente). Unable to drive them out, I understand. Plan accordingly because the laws have been in place for a long time.
  4. What a wonderful way to start a Monday... enjoy. Funny Outdoor Sign (biggeekdad.com)
  5. Interesting. In Canada, both ATM/debit cards and credit cards ALL require PIN numbers. I have never heard of a card not requiring them so I now understand your extreme paranoia.
  6. Guillermo is a first name and, I believe, that the equivalent in English is William. Bill is short for William and Memo is short for Guillermo.
  7. Just pretend that you're back in the early 70's in Canada and the Mexican Mortgage rates will look normal. Also have another question. In the U.S., people are used to deducting their mortgage interest on their income taxes. That option is not available in Canada... is it available in Mexico IF you pay income taxes (like on a rental) in Mexico? Or?
  8. Doesn't the TIP automatically expire once a Temporal becomes a Permanente? Bad planning on the part of the OP for sure because I believe that it also means that he/she will lose their deposit. If I was about to becomes Permanente and had a foreign plated vehicle in the country, I would be getting it out of the country in advance of becoming Permanente... no matter how inconvenient it was.
  9. If you are using Amigo plan, MOST of them include unlimited facebook and messaging up to a certain amount of mb. Telcel Friend | Unlimited Friend Packages now with 5G You will see the various logos of what is available underneath the detail for each plan available.
  10. Please state where exactly in Riberas that you experienced this for the benefit of the OP. I do know that some people have pools and/or water softening equipment and they backflush to the street.
  11. They don't usually ask why you are renewing early but you may not be here (for whatever reason) and simply need to renew early by X number of months.
  12. Also remember that saying "20/20 hindsight" and due diligence (which is what the OP is trying to do). This thread from the past may help... Septic tank questions ( arghhh ! ) - Ajijic/Chapala/Guadalajara - Chapala.com Webboard How many people actually check the systems of the house that they plan on renting or buying? Or do they just ooh and ah at the decor and the garden or the size of different areas or the view? The best prevention is education. A properly sealed from above septic system here is similar to turning a glass over (the tank) and submerging it in water (the ground and it's fluctuating water table)... the water will not rise inside the tank.
  13. Fine. Let me spell it out for you. I see MANY, MANY driving and parking infractions occurring every single time I am on the road with nary the sign of ANY police presence at all.
  14. Viluma does windows and that includes screens. They have done both for me.
  15. No, he didn't say that but you understood what I was trying to convey.
