Hi tinker1! :00000732:
No worries... Volvos last for life if its well maintained and care off. I used ti drive a 1993 240 for work and long distance travelling and it was already 300,000 km. Had no problems with it.

Enjoy your ride!

Welcome. 45K doesn't even warm up a Volvo. You'll triple that I bet.
