Auto inspektion in Zurich - how much is it?

Hi everyone,

could someone tell me how much does it cost to get an "auto inspektion" in Zurich? I have a Skoda Octavia - but not sure if it matters at all

What exactly do you mean by "auto inspektion"?

MFK?
Service?

What many of the garages do is contact you when your MFK is about due, and suggest that you bring the car in to them to let them have a look at it.

It isn't necessarily them trying to find a way to rip you off. By being proactive about it they can schedule your appointment in advance. For a fee they will also handle the MFK for you.

It's mostly a question of how much you trust your garage, and how much you want to do on your own. There's nothing stopping you giving the car a good wash yourself and going for the MFK on your own.

But if the MFK finds a problem with your car and you have a week to fix it, (or a complete fail) and you call the garage needing an urgent appointment, he may be booked up.

For a more friendly experience with a free cup of coffee, you can also take your car to the TCS for its MFK:
