Default 850 T5 questions

i must apologise for asking a question that must get asked all the time !

i have seen a 1995 -850 T5 auto estate 120,000 miles on the clock
its up for 1,250(in a dealer)i asked if he would take an offer to which he replied he would take 1,000
it not alot for a car i know,
on start up all seems fine and dandy but i have yet to test drive it
what should i look out for ?
what i know about volvo's you can put on the back of a postage stamp
what i do know is that everyone sayes vovlo's run for ever,but not all volvo's have these modern things called turbo's !!!
