Chocolate cars: New extension for their regularization in Mexico? 


In Mexico, the problem of “chocolate cars” has been a hot topic that has caused intense debates and divisions in society over the years. These vehicles, mostly imported illegally from the United States, have been circulating in Mexican territory without complying with the country’s regulations and legal requirements. The informality of these cars persists, driven in part by the lack of affordable transportation alternatives for many Mexican families. 

However, for those “chocolate car” drivers who have not regularized their vehicles, the fear of confiscation by the authorities has become a latent concern. With the regularization deadline approaching, the question arises whether there will be a new extension that will allow them to get their vehicles in order and avoid penalties. 

In this context, it is crucial to know the position of the authorities in charge of supervising the regularization of these vehicles. The Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, the Public Vehicle Registry and the Ministry of Security and Citizen Protection play a fundamental role in this process. The owners of “chocolate cars” are anxious to know if these entities will consider a new extension. 

The regularization process seeks to benefit thousands of Mexican families who depend on these vehicles daily. However, the business sector dedicated to the car trade has expressed its concern and opposition to a new extension that has been suggested for September. 

This division of opinion has considerably complicated the possibility of achieving significant progress in the “chocolate car” regularization program. 

The extension of regularization of “chocolate cars” until September 

In a relief for owners of “chocolate cars” in Mexico, a new extension has been granted to complete the regularization process for their vehicles. The deadline was originally scheduled to conclude at the end of August, but has now been extended to Saturday, September 30. This extension provides owners of these vehicles a valuable opportunity to get their legal affairs in order. 

The regularization of “chocolate cars” represents a fundamental step towards compliance with traffic and customs laws in Mexico. It offers benefits both for owners and for the country as a whole, contributing to road safety and legal order. This extension is a unique opportunity; After September 30, the authorities are likely to intensify measures related to the circulation of non-regularized vehicles.
