Companies in Brazil that import and sell cars are pressuring the Brazilian government over the trade quota, which was used up in the first six months of the modified pact, which took effect in March.

After breaching the limit, Mexican exporters must pay tariffs that significantly increase the cost of sales.

"We understand that they're interested in raising the quota, even though there still hasn't been any official contact," said the Mexican government official. "Our understanding is that they want to raise it to the tune of around $350 million."

The Brazilian official told Reuters that Brasilia was eyeing lifting the quota by between $300 million and $500 million.
