Default XC70 Known Issues?

My 2004 XC70 is nearing the end of it's factory warranty. I know the top engine stabilizer bushing is broken and needs replacing. While I'm at the shop for this warranty issue, are there any other known issues with this car I need to have the dealer inspect/repair? I would certainly hate to have a covered item 'appear' just after the warranty expires (of course Murphy would have it no other way!).

Thanks for your insights.

knock on wood this has happened to me several times My 2000 caddy sts turned 100k and the a/c breaks, and f51 suspension codes out

My 05 suburban reached 100k and the tranny craps out

UGH i think GM programs breakage at 100k

if you have any electrical problems now... check em out! My 01 had some electrical quirks at 60,000 miles, i let em go
and replaced a few items along the way, today i spent 3,000 for an ECM, O2 sensors and SOFTWARE upgrades to fix issues which include my transmission which would bump at stop signs as it went back into gear.
I still have an electrical draw, right front window modulator, a wonky left passenger window regulator, a non functioning outside temp gauge... this will be a 1000.00 repair. for all of these.
i can deal with bearings and front shocks needing repairs but 4000.00 for electrical repairs... thats crap for a car with 114,000 miles!
