New car MFK/Expertise period extended to 5 yrs. [starting Feb 2017]

The Federal Council (21.01.2015) has extended the period for the first MFK/Expertise on new cars to FIVE years from the current four years.

After the first check, the period drops to THREE years, then TWO years after that.

The check for Minibuses, delivery vehicles and tractors remains at four years.

The check for small (<750kg) trailers has been eliminated.

Ah, missed that point (just saw it in the article I read).

We can put this post on hold for two years.

Think it is already in now. Bought a new car in December 2009 straight from the factory via the main dealer and it had the first MFK in Sept 2014. As mentioned, next one in three years.

SOBEIT, maybe your car was called up 1 year late.

It is now after 4 years, after February 2017 it will be 5 years (6 years at the latest): it was announced today,

My first MFK was after 6 years so it's an inexact science anyway
