This factura above is issued by broker for every car nationalized. Every vehicle once nationalized appears on REPUVE, a database of 33 million Mexican vehicles. And, on Aduana's web site one can check the legality of the pedimento.

Above is a sample of a pedimento issued by Aduana when a car is legally nationalized. Without a pedimento and a factura from the broker as shown to the right, a vehicle is not legally nationalized. 

This was my first car nationalized and one of 89 completed. This is my client proudly displaying Guanajuato state plates in September 18, 2013. 

This is a pedimento as issued by Aduana for a car I nationalized.

UCD (La Unión Campesina Democrática)

UCD permits are for those in GTO state nationalizing through me and waiting for your nationalizing to be completed, you have avaialble to you, FREE UCD permit allowing you to drive in the state of Guanajuato. Your vehicle may be insured, emissions tested and you receive letters from SAT and head of GTO state Transito police saying your vehicle is legal. To do so, please do it through me. There is an illegal UCD office which must be avoided or your car may be confiscated.



We anticipate being able to nationalize cars again but first we will complete the one's who have been waiting. AMLO, our president, signed an agreement with UCD stating he will be allowing nationalizing cars and a motion is already before the Deputies. We do not know the timing but possibly by April . The notice was published in Milenio on August 4, 2018.

I share everyone's frustration many times over in the inability to nationalize cars even though we were successful in nationalizing 89 vehicles. Unfortunately, we have no control over the Mexican government's corruption nor control over the auto dealers associations corruption. Meanwhile, to date, the broker nor Aduana have not given refunds but say maybe a refund on 75% will happen in time. Therefore, UCD (the organization I work with to nationalize) and I make up ~75% of what the person paid in hopes of some day getting that amount back from the broker. Prior to a refund a nationalizing termination agreement is signed. As to timing, UCD builds up their cash reserves at their office in San Miguel and also the man who works for UCD plus me, add our own funds. When we have enough pesos, I pay the car owner. It takes many weeks. To date here have been 53 refunds totalling over 1,835,000 pesos. As of this date there are 3 who requested refunds that are outstanding. Those who chose to call me names and attack my integrity I simply block and ignore. We are doing all we can to correct this matter. 

At the border I am told 2009 and 2010 model years, NAFTA made vehicles are legally being nationalized at a cost on average of $2500 - $3500 US. But be careful as per this article May 2, 2018:​

If anyone offers to nationalize a vehicle and the process is to be completed within days and / or it includes state plates including EdoMex the process has a 100% chance of being illegal. For those obtaining EdoMex plates for their foreign-plated vehicle the process is totally illegal. If you want to check out such a process go and ask your local SAT / Aduana office if it is legal. Every car when legally nationalized receives a pedimento from Aduana and a factura from the broker.
