This was my first Nissan product. I work on my own car and was delightfully surprised and the reliability. We drove to to 200k miles. Only just then was it starting to be slow shifting form 2nd to 3rd. I replaced a couple starters, but no fault of Nissan for that. Ball Joints at 180k miles, (Typical), a power steering pump at 170K. All in all, it was mechanically sound. One thing we could never fix was the smell of exaust getting into the seating compartment when it was cold. We never could figure out why....and only when cold. Beyone normal wear and tear, it was a very reliable car.
