Yeah, well I'd be very wary of posing as a buyer for a car on Facebook. That's a great way to announce you have some money for stealing or extorting.

Yes, I'm sure you did, totally oblivious to the risk you were taking, as so many non-Spanish people do who don't bother to even follow Mexico's news except in English.

Here are a few of many news articles available on the matter.

YA, that's why I went to the guy's house. Test drove it twice before there was a separate date to do the cash sale. There are ways to be smart, rather than throwing out blanket fear.

Yeah, I still don't think you're anything but lucky. Anyone who looks or acts like they have money is a target for extortionists and other criminals. I just don't believe you realize what's going on around you here.

OH I know. Like one of my captain's that took a 9mm round through the hand a few weeks back.
However, you might want to come out of your bunker every once in a while. Not everyone is trying to rip you off! For every bad thing that happens, it is eclipsed by the good!

Nice false equivalence (and now you own fishing captains, wtf?), but then you really fall flat on your face. How about admitting you didn’t know and maybe even saying thanks?

:wtf: :wtf:

Maybe you should take a Midol and Double Martini, click your Ruby Red Slippers and repeat "there is no place like home"

Don't worry I won't help your readers any more. I will just let you scare the F#@K out of them so they will never want to come here.

Almost exactly what we did, except the second time we met her at the pre school where she worked. Then we met her father at the IMSS hospital where he was a doctor.

We had a car for a while, but sold it. We had it on a trickle charger during our absence and put gasoline preservative in the tank, but the injectors regularly plugged up. Taking cabs locally is quite inexpensive and for longer trips we hire a driver. That way we don't have to deal with crappy traffic and can enjoy the passing scenery. If interested, I can provide contact info for the guy we use. Perfect English.

Used car? Unthinkable?

by Gayle in Calif. @, Monday, February 15, 2021, 02:15 (58 days ago) @ frostbite

I lived in Zihua for three years without a car
For some this would be unthinkable but ..
for me it was liberating

@ Gayle in Calif.

TOTALLY DO-ABLE... One of my favourite things about Z is that it is a very compact area.
I've been here in "Z" for over TWENTY YEARS, WITHOUT a car.
Not only is it "liberating", e.g. from the expenses and other things related to owning a car, as a result I've probably walked THOUSANDS of miles = EXERCISE, and I've "enjoyed the scenery" doing so.

Our daughter has a red 4-door 2006 Dodge Attitude for sale. Stop by our home to see it on the corner of Juan N. Álvarez & Vicente Guerrero in downtown Zihuatanejo across from the disaster that used to be Plaza del Artista. We'll discuss the details in person.
