PPI on a CPO?

Getting closer and closer to joining the Maserati Owner family. I've narrowed my preference to a GT Convertible. I frequently check the Maserati site to see what Certified Pre Owned (CPO's) are out there (the Officine CPO, not just CPO), but also have been looking in general. If I end up finding what I want that is not CPO, I definitely plan on having a Pre Purchase Inspection (PPI) done. My question is... if you purchase a CPO, is a PPI necessary/recommended?


Thanks for any advice/feedback!

I still think it is a good idea to at least have someone put it in the air and look the thing over quickly...We don't charge our normal PPI rate for cars under warranty like that...Just like 1.0 of labor...Jason

Itís been mentioned here before if you have a CPO, it does NOT mean it hasnít had paint work done. FYI. Iíve experienced this firsthand now on two cars.

We've heard a lot of horror stories on the forum, to the point where it seems like a dealer can get any Maserati stamped "CPO" short of a salvage title or check engine light.

That's disheartening.. I was expecting that since it adds additional warranty it would be worth so much more, but now I know better.


Thanks!
