FEDERAL ODOMETER DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT UPDATE

Effective January 1, 2021, McConkey Auction Group (MAG) has implemented the Federal Government’s new Odometer Disclosure Requirements. In summary:

  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has extended the odometer disclosure period from 10 to 20 years.
  • Washington State was not able to meet the January 1, 2021 deadline. However, since it is a Federal law, McConkey Auction Group is required to comply.
  • What this means:
    • Odometer disclosures are required for every sale or transfer for the first 20 years of a vehicle’s life (as opposed to the 10 years that were required prior to January 1, 2021).
    • This change will only apply to model year 2011 and newer vehicles. When a vehicle with a model year of 2011 or newer is sold or transferred, the actual odometer mileage must be included on the Odometer Disclosure Statement for 20 years before that vehicle becomes Exempt.
    • This new requirement does not affect currently Exempt vehicles. Model year 2010 and older vehicles will continue to be exempt from Federal Odometer Disclosure Requirements.
