Aside from the occasional peering wars i've never had or witnessed any serious issues with Cogent. If you want some redundancy you might also

Plus if you had direct connectivity to Cogent, their peering status with
others wouldn't affect you anymore. Personally, I've seriously
considered this as a reason to get a connection from Cogent.

If you are not single-homed, you have no issues reaching Cogent even during a "peering war" - unless Cogent depeers / gets depeered from - both- (all) of your upstreams at the same time. So what value is there to add Cogent?

If you are not single-homed, then reaching Cogent is not even close to your only problem.
