The auto insurance companies in Mexico have to be one of the biggest rackets. I would love to own one of those. The owners must be very, very rich people. We used to decline the Mexican insurance when our US credit card coverage was good. Somehow that was closed down (probably by Mexican insurance company political muscle).
One thing we have found is that even though SUV type vehicles are more expensive to rent, their ability to survive big potholes due to stronger tires, and rocky roads, due to higher ground clearance makes them worth it.
Their certainly is room for a Mexican insurance company to open up and offer much lower rates, but the owners would probably be killed by hit men.
