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.
