Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I went in to Mexico on FM-T. I had to have a letter from the lienholder (always make many copies) written on their letter head (I asked them to notarize it, just in case). This, along with title and proof of Mex. insurance worked fine. The lienholder just wanted me to write them a letter stating my reason for visiting Mexico, dates of travel, and where I was going.
Whenever they say you need a document, just go ahead and make 3 or 4 copies, sooner or later you may need them. They were very nice and helpful at the border, it is time-consuming, so be patient. After the border, when we were stopped elsewhere, it was just a couple of questions and waved on past.
It is kind of alarming when you see soldiers with machine guns everywhere. Just be aware that they are there for your protection. When you get closer to them, most of them are very young, and they all usually return your smile.
