Lucky23 Posted September 22, 2018 Report Share Posted September 22, 2018 Vehicle Nationalization at Laredo border 2018 I’ve scanned and read past posts on this board about vehicle nationalization. I would like to post this topic again to gain a better understanding. I am a bit concerned about this endeavor. If anyone has nationalized their car recently, it would be great to hear about your experience and advice. I know it is a huge hassle to nationalize a California plated car but my 2004 Honda has really low miles and is reliable so I want to nationalize my vehicle. I am now permanente and need to drive the 2004 Honda to Laredo. 1. Where do I attain a temporary permit locally (Lakeside) or in Guadalajara to drive my insured car to Laredo? 2. Where do I go to draft a document that will permit my Mexican friend to drive my insured California plated car with me in the car? 3. I understand the drive to Laredo is about 12 hours. Is there a recommended route or half way point hotel to stay in? I am in favor of toll roads. Is there a hotel in Laredo that is recommended? 4. Once at the Laredo border I understand I have to work with a broker both to import and export my California plated (no overdue registration fees as the vehicle has had a non operation status.). Can someone describe their experience or recommend a broker? 5. Online on blogs I have seen that cars over 10 years old may not be imported, however I have spoken to a broker and that person said for an added fee the vehicle can be nationalized. Anyone have real experience nationalizing a older vehicle in 2018? 6. I am not certain if my Mexican friend can accompany me. If you are a lady and need to cross the border for temporal status requirements, please personal message me. 7. Any other input that is helpful is greatly appreciated. Thanks 🙏.
