Mercedes ownership vs. leasing - ok to own after 30k miles?

I lease a 2009 C350 and am debating buying it off the lease. I don't think I want to lease a car again. I am debating buying this2009 C350 off the lease because when looking at even non-luxury cars to purchase, the price for even a non-luxury is the same or greater than my buyout price on the lease of my C350.

The car has 30k miles and my biggest is concern is maintenance. Will the car last for many miles beyond 30K? What is most likely to go wrong with this C350?

Thank you.

MB calls your car a W204 and there is a dedicated forum for those. Scroll down from this general one until you see the sedans area.
