registering car in Mexico

We are driving from California to the tip of South America, I would like to get Mexican plates.  Is it possible to register the car in Mexico after crossing the boder, the car is California registered in my name.  Also what is the best insurance that will cover me for the entire trip for theft as well?  Any advice is welcome from others who have done similar trips.

 

Thanks,

Sarah

agreed - not necessary (or easy)

We met a couple of Austrians on our trip who did manage to purchase a car in Mexico (so it had Mexican plates) and even that seemed like a total nightmare of bureaucracy and inefficiency.  Took them over a month and wasn't cheap.  Just stick with the CA plates - we drove our Element from CA to Argentina with CA plates and didn't have any problems (besides the standard sporadic bribe situations etc).

Registering in Mexico

I have had FM 3 and FM 2 in Mexico for about 11yrs and its about impossible to

change registration, I have Mexican and US drivers licence. Only if you buy the car in Mexico could you obtain plates.

Your fine with your plates, all you need is the title to the car, my registration was years

behind  and never asked for.
