Default 2007 S60 2.5t for $5000??

Good morning all!
I am shopping for a car for my 16 yr old daughter and came across a 2007 S60 2.5t for $5k. I have never owned a Volvo, or any “premium” brand before and am skeptical of possible maintenance costs. Although there are minimal service reports on the Carfax, The car is extremely clean both inside and out. It looks like the previous owners definitely took good care of it. Living in Ohio, you’d expect to see some rust, but not a spec anywhere. Any advice on possible concerns or what to look out for??
thank you in advance for any and all help!!

Check out to see what the market pricing is for that car based on location, miles and seller. Then I'd shop for comparable cars on Autotrader to see what the asking price is for similar models. In terms of maintenance costs, there are common wear issues that crop up on all cars based on mileage but the most important one is when the timing belt was changed (it should have been done at 10 years or 120Kmiles so this car should be on its second belt. otherwise budget $600 and get it done before loading the miles on). I'd also recommend a professional inspection - there's nothing specific to look out for so mostly its to see if its been properly maintained, been in an accident etc.
