Long and winding road

We've been coming to Mexico for 30+ years, always by "tourist visas", and have never heard of anyone leaving Mexico before the expiry of their 6 month tourist visa, and being allowed to return on that same visa. Ours (and I expect everyone elses) expired when you leave Mexico, and a new tourist visa must be obtained every time one re-enters Mexico.
Maybe the agent was referring to those oddball regulations covering only the border zone, that folks use to go back and forth in that ballpark 100 km zone, including much of Baja California?

Yikes! Are you serious! I have been using the six-month tourist visa to go in and out of Mexico for years! Not one agent until now has said anything. I have a friend who did the same for many years until he and his wife finally moved down to Todos Santos (between La Paz and Los Cabos in Baja California) and are now Mexican citizens. Ah, guess I really have to get my butt in gear to get my visa permanente "rentista!" I downloaded the application. Doesn't look too difficult. Have a residence address in Rosarito all lined up!
