Is this 2010 Volvo XC90 a good deal?

Hi there,

Looking to buy a 2010 Volvo XC90 with 130k on the clock. There’s a full service history. Cambelt was changed at 100k miles. It seems most of the mileage was highway miles. Price is €12k. Is it possible to bring the car to a Volvo dealer to get checked out? Good deal or bad deal?
