Diagnostic test or not

Hey everyone. I have a 2009 C300 Sportmatic with less than 33,000 miles. My certified pre-owned warranty is up next week. I was wondering what people thought about me paying $110 to get a diagnostic test run to check for any issues that are warranty related prior to the end of my warranty. Did anyone do this and was it beneficial in finding an issues early on or just a waste of money? I am planning on keeping the car for at least another few year. I have had no problems with the car since I purchased it four years ago.

If you had any problems it would tell you in the dash, I would not bother, they are a good car anyway.

As tv said, electronic diagnostics will not show problems. Might reveal pending codes on minor issues that did not trigger a light, but I think you should be more worry about mechanical wear outs. With low mileage the car is 5-6 years old.
Consider doing full PPI
