Quality1 Used Car Guarantee


We are purchasing a used car and the dealer said we will receive a 1 year guarantee from Quality1. I am not really sure what this means as the Quality1 website (Quality1.ch) is not in English and the dealer does not speak English. Does anyone know how the Quality1 Guarantee / warranty works?

Also are there different types of Quality1 warranties that I should clarify (i.e. how do I ensure I get the most comprehensive coverage)?

Overwhelmed in Zurich!

I need those German lessons!

Re: Quality1 Used Car Guarantee

I had very good experiences with Quality1. Read about them here:

Buying Warranty

They offer varying levels of cover, with 5* being the highest (most comprehensive). Most dealers offer 1* or 3* as their standard -- it's worth asking if they will upgrade you to 5* at their cost as a bargaining tactic. In the worst-case scenario, you can pay the difference in cost yourself.
