Purchased used in 2000 with 90k miles....traveled all over the western states, replaced clutch at about 150 K.
At 230 K plus... my family and I survived a
near head-on highway accident.
The car is totaled but we all survived.
We will buy another Nissan Altima.
I am sure the car would have gone another 100 to 200 K for sure.
This was our experience...can't speak for the rest.
The only continuing issue was a small electrical issue....grounding kept blowing front head lamps every 6 months...mechanic could not find the troubled spot and bulb replacement was always cheaper.
Once the radio antenna snapped of...finding a replacement was difficult...regular maintenance was the key.

227K still runs strong.
Bought back in 1994 runs just as strong today as it did 17 years ago.
Original clutch and just changed original brake rotors last week.
Best car I have ever had.
Timing chain is getting a little noisy and has a oil leak, but does not drip on the garage floor so its fine.

We have two GXEs which were purchased new a month apart in 1993. Both have 193,000 plus miles. Although several parts have been repaired/replaced (e.g. CV joints, climate control system, A/C condenser, knock sensor, head gasket, engine oil leak (common occurrence) blower motor, both vehicles have serviced us VERY well and have been maintained likewise. We hope to drive the cars until... These Altimas have exceeded our expectations. Regrettably, the newer models are engineered to make the consumer more dealer-dependent for maintenance and repair. People are EXTREMELY surprised at the age of the vehicles (nearly 16 years) because they have retained their new- car appearance.

I purchased my Altima new. It has unbelievable mileage on it and I can say this: 861.00 dollars in repairs have been done to this vehicle. Talk about one very dependable vehicle that still has no rust, never garage kept, and is still in awesome shape. Would not hesitate to drive it to California and back. Thanks Nissan for making the best car money can buy. Awesome job well done.

I bought this car a few hours before going on a road trip without knowing much about Nissans. The major defects with this vehicle are expected for a car with 150,000 miles and for its age of 11 at the time. It had been very worthy from getting me from point A to point B. Being a delivery driver, this vehicle took the punishment very well.
