Auto guarantee/warranty needed - 1mo old used car

Hi all,

need your help,
it seems you can not just go and buy an auto warranty, it must be through a dealership/garage.

My garage gave me a 1yr standard warranty on my used car with 23K km, its a 2011.

They are also offering an extended warranty with http://www.suissefox.ch/ but its a little too high for 2 years 1800 CHF. I have seen other dealers giving their guarantee for 500 per year.

Any help where i can get an auto guarantee by myself in Switzerland? I already have road side assistance with my insurance.

What year is the car? What make?

As for SwissFox - their website is under construction - which is pathetic web design!!

Why waste money on a guarantee? It's an almost new!

The 500 ones will only cover a few items & you have have to bring your grandparents with you if you wish to claim (i.e. a con)
