Should I go for a high mileage Volvo XC90?

Hi lads. I'm thinking of buying a 2005 Volvo XC90 D5. It has 260,000km on the clock and is getting a service, timing belt and front calipers done with a warranty on the gearbox and engine. What mileage are these good for, what recalls were they subjected to and what service requirements in the future?

Thanks.
