Post 2008 C300 vs 2008 Volvo S80

I am in desperate need of a new car. I have the opportunity to buy my co-worker's 2008 C300 with 50K miles on it for $20K. She is the original owner, all service done, mint mint condition...garaged. I have also looked at 2008 Volvo S80s for the same price. As a teen, my Dad's 1983 300D saved my life when I was hit head on, so I'm tempted to go back to MB. I think she is offering it to me at a very good price. Thoughts on those two cars? Any major reliability issues showing up with the 2008 C's yet? I know they are just now starting to approach the 50-80K mile mark so data is probably limited.
