Just got an 01 GTP...anything I should look for?

Hi all. This is my first post here, and I apologize now if it's a redundant questions but I couldn't find a good answer using search. I just picked up a 2001 GTP sedan with 54,000 miles on it. I bought it at the pre-owned center of a big new Ford dealer (I know). The car is extremely clean and drives rock solid so far. Unfortunately the dealer could not give me maintenance records other than carfax reports which don't tell you squat. It does have an exhaust system, K&N filter and I think a chip in it but not sure. My question is are there any common problem areas I should look into to find out if a serious problem is looming? I know anything can happen but would just like to know if there's anything I should look out for with these cars? Any specific tests I should have a mechanic check? After owning it a week I can't find any signs of gasket or other fluid leaks and everything electronic appears to be working as it should. I love this car but being a performance model I just wonder if it was ever abused, but you'd never know by looking at it. Also what are opinions about switching to Mobil 1 for this car?

Thanks,
Gipper
