Still running well 27 years later @225,000 miles
I’m the third owner, bought from a Colorado Springs, Colorado dealership in Aug 2015 with 126,000 miles. Had a random misfire so I got it for cheap. Diagnosed and found it was a bad injector. Five years later and 100,000 miles added , I’ve only replaced the alternator, struts and ac compressor. It has been the most reliable vehicle I’ve owned since getting my license at the age of 16 in 1988 . I worked in the oil industry in North Dakota for two years and this car always started right up in the brutal winters up there , without a block heater ! With good Michelin tires, it did quite well in the snow too. Fast forward to January 2020, it is still my reliable commuter car in San Antonio, Texas. I replaced the 5 year battery last month because It finally died. Replaced the aging valve cover gasket too. It made a 700 mile round trip recently without any issues whatsoever and averaged 28 MPG . What can I say? This old Nissan continues to run strong and it has exceeded my expectations for being an older car !
Keep oil changed and it will run forever !
I love my first gen Altima ! Bought it Aug 2015 . Have since put 50,000 miles on it which it now has 177,516 on the odometer . I've only replaced the alternator and one fuel injector because of a misfire. Overall, this vehicle has been very dependable and still continues to run well. I commute to and from Colorado to North Dakota every two weeks. It's never let me down despite the alternator going out while at home . Mine has the 5 speed and I change the oil every 3000 miles , conventional 5W30 Castrol.

Overall car has been very reliable for past 20+ years with 248000+ miles on car everything engine and tranny is original, p/windows auto door locks, power antenna, a/c, radio, automatic seat belts. In short never had any issues, always changed oil every 2000 miles, and regular up keep, parents and brother and I took many trips to Canada, The only neg- thing about car does not run on E-10 gas runs well on pure gasoline, interstate gas mileage I have gotten 45 mpg with a average of 38 mpgs, my city range is 22-29.
