Is it really worth it? I’m doing some car shopping for a couple of clients at the moment and I’m finding it depends on the person’s level of comfort. You will definitely pay more for the car if it’s been labelled CPO (Certified Pre-Owned). The comfort is knowing that you have a car that has been meticulously gone over and most things will be covered for 2-3 years after the date you purchase. If you are someone who can roll with a bit of risk, then CPO may not be as necessary.
