Default What to look for when buying a 2003 XC70?

So my 98 v70 is in desperate need of some TLC { }. Unfortunately, I don't think its in my cards to make these fixes.

I'm looking at a 2003 XC70 with 90K at the local Volvo dealership. The sales associate says the car was originally purchased from them by elders of a local family and mainly used about town. All scheduled maintenance was performed by the dealership.

When the car was traded in for another Volvo, the dealership performed:
-CPO Inspection
-Scheduled Maintenance
-Trans Flush
-Timing Belt
-Brake Inspection
-Front Brake Pads

He also said all of the recalls for the 2003 XC70 have been taken care of { }.

So, my question... what else/what all do I need to be looking for when purchasing a used car from a Volvo dealership?

It sounds quite nice. My recently purchased 2003 is a different story. How about the upper and lower transmission torque bushings ? Spark Plugs ? Assuming it drives and steer well, it sounds like something I'd want !
