The heart of the CPO is an extension of the original manufacturer's warranty, by the original manufacturer. That puts the car under your state's Lemon Law. While Lemon Laws typically apply only to new cars under the factory warranty, by certifying your car and extending the warranty on it, I believe MB bought themselves several extra years of exposure under the Lemon Law.
There was a big case several years back involving a BMW that had been repainted but sold as new. (I was webmaster for a national group of Lemon Lawyers and I recall putting the case on the site). BMW refused to take the car back and refused to settle. The case went to trial and the jury killed BMW. They gave the guy his money back, plus the car, plus a five figure cash award and BMW paid his legal fees as well. I believe the whole case cost them over $100,000.
The nice part about the Lemon Law is it provides for your attorneys fees if you win. Most attorneys will take the case for free upfront and only collect a fee if you win. Each state is a little different, but I'd suggest getting a free case evaluation. Just Google "California Lemon Law" and you'll find a bunch of them.
