Registering your US/Canadian vehicle in Mexico

Foreign Vehicle Registration in Mexico

Seems everyone is in the same boat when trying to register their US/Canadian cars in Mexico = huge expense or a trip back over the border.

Is it the same rule for every Mexican state? Does vehicle registration stay with the owner or the plates?

Surely there must be an easier way to do this?  Has anyone had their car confiscated yet because they are a permanent resident with foreign plates?

Does anyone out there have the answer?
