The only good thing for me about a CPO is the extended warranty but you end up paying about 2k extra for a CPO car anyway. I think I will look for one on sale privately which has full history and documentation then have a PPI done before buying it. If I really want the warranty then I will pay $2k out of pocket and get it for the peace of mind.

It just makes me wonder how many cars are out there with a clean Carfax but a whole lot of hidden history being sold as CPO.
A car that has been in an accident can be CPO'd. I've heard many people say that a lot of dealers don't really even do "extensive" inspections on the car and simply just slap on the CPO. I don't know if it's true or not but I wouldn't be surprised if some dealers did do that.
