Default Noob just looking at volvo

Hello all. I am looking for a late model car for my wife. One that we are looking at is a 2010 XC90 with all the bells and whistles and low miles. It' has a 8 cylinder engine and AWD / 4WD.. Have never owned a Volvo before but we just love this one. With almost 80k miles on it, is there any issue for this particular model that we should be aware of. other than the 8 cylinder engine not being fuel efficient, we know about that. I am thinking of important maintenance items or known mechanical or electrical problems. We keep vehicles forever so doing our best to pick a good one is important. Thanks in advance to all who respond. Mike

I think the key is knowing the maintenance history. I'd also invest in a professional inspection if you want to be confident in your offer.
