I got my moneys worth.
I bought a 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5s while in college. It had 104k when I bought it. Currently has 155k 5 years later. What I fixed along the way was 2 break calibers, a crankshaft position sensor, a gasket, a transition flush that didn't help, and a muffler that fell off. What I haven't fixed is the Check engine light (evap system) has been been on 3 years, but that's not a problem, the car shakes at idle (Motor mounts), and it shifts hard into 2nd gear and sqeeks into 3rd while whining in reverse (transmission issues). Interior materials are cheap, the plastic dash cracked long ago, and the glovebox doesn't like to stay hinged. The outside paint has rust forming around the rear wheels, the front bumper is pealing paint, and the hubcaps are pealing paint. However, the A/C and Heat work like a charm. The car always starts, and once it is up to speed (0-60 is like 20 seconds) it runs so comfortably on the highway. I consider it a great value for $6,500 close to 5 years ago because it always gets me to where I'm going and is a great car to run into the ground. I will be selling for $1k tomorrow. Thank you for the 51k miles for a net $5500.
I can say it is completely reliable.
The car is getting me to where I need to go. It was very clean and still has no problems. Would buy from here again.
