Of the final generation Volvo V70/XC70?

Step dad is looking to replace his Suzuki Forenza wagon in January/February. He has expressed interest in Volvo wagons and Subaru Foresters, also somewhat the Outback. His main main concern is that whatever he gets can haul all of his drum kit and other instruments, so wagon or mid size crossovers.

So I come to you, Oppo hivemind. I know little of Volvos other than that I like them and want a C30 and/or Polestar something for myself. What are common issues that V70s and their derivations face, anything I should totally steer him away from?

V70 above for your time.
