Anyone who drives into Mexico with a Temporary Import Permit (TIP) and insurance from Mapfre should be aware that if the car is totaled, Mapfre will not aid in the removal of the TIP. You will lose your $400 deposit, and your credit card will be sublect to whatever fines and permanent import duties that Aduana chooses to levy.
