Does anybody have any links to a site with used cars in Merida. I am trying to weigh out the prices between here and the US to see if it is really worth it to drive another car down or buy it here.

You can start with Vivastreet.com.mx. The site offers a broad indication of prices and some photos.

Craigslist Yucatan

In hindsight, based on the changing regulations, we would have bought a vehicle here instead of driving one down. If you plan to become a permanent resident before the car you purchase wears out, buy one here instead.

Diario de Yucatan website has classifieds - you might want to investigate driving a car in to Mexico with the idea of leaving it here. Lots on Yolisto about that.

We purchased a used car here last summer, and found vivastreet to be the most thorough and most updated listing of used cars. Incidentally, we are also looking to sell our used car, 1998 Honda Accord, sometime in June as we will be leaving back for the states this summer. If you're interested you can pm me for more details.

We just bought a car from Auto Max in Merida We used Vivastreet .... to get an idea on what a reasonable price should be and then started shopping. 6 cars later we found what I hope proves as the best option at Auto Max they have cars listed her as do other used car dealers http://www.autosyuca...ncias-autos.php We were his 1st gringo customer, he does not speak english but seemed to have good quality cars, not a large selection and listings do not include a price but they are on the windshields and he will tell you the price if you call.

If you have a car in mind you would like to check out, it's not a bad idea to have a Mexican friend go and find out how much they want for it. Seeing a gringo approach lights up dollar signs in peopleĀ“s heads and you may get an inflated price. We are all rich after all. On the street, note that the $ sign means the car is for sale, usually followed by a phone number. Have the Mexican phone that number to get the price, then get into it with the owner.

Sage advice indeed. Joaquin of La Curva car rental will perform this service and also check out the vehicle itself. Simplicity is beautiful.

I have a question about buying a car from another state (here in Mexico). I'm looking at buying a newer used vehicle (private sale) from someone in Merida but the vehicle has out of state plates on it. They guy just renewed them last month from this other state (because he said the plates were cheaper there than to get Yuctan plates) so he said I'm good for a year. Can I simply go with him to the licencing place and have the plates transferred to my name? Is there some kind of a fee for this? Also if I decide to keep these plates for this year and then next year put Yuctan plates on the vehicle will there be some kind of a chage for this other than the cost of the plates? (i.e. is there some kind of a charge to registered an out of state vehicle in the Yucatan)? Also I will need to get auto insurance for this vehicle. Any good affordable recommendations.

My understanding is, for you to change from other state plates to Yucatan plates, you need to pay the Yucatan state tax for the vehicle, in addition to the fee for the plates themselves. Oh, and in theory you only have 30 days to re-register the car.

Thanks Whazzoo for the information. I wonder how much the Yucatan state tax would be.

When I bought our Ford Escape car3 years ago, the car was registered in Campeche and had Campeche state plates. It took 8 hours to have the ownership transferred in the Merida office. So if you buy a car with out of state plates, prepare yourself to experience one of the worst bureaucracy you can ever imagine.

Only 8 hours? It took 2 days to transfer my Yucatan plated truck.

There are a lot of things I am willing to do on my own but this is one area where I will be using a fixer to get this done. Well worth the $250.00 pesos.

I was 3 days registering our Yucatan plated car. It wasn't just the gringos having a hard time. The local folks looked equally frustrated.
