How many miles can a Maxima go until it dies? How many miles do you have on yours?

I have a 2001 GXE that I bought a few weeks ago with 160,000 miles on it. The car has been well cared for over the years. I bought it from my brother who bought it used in 2002 and I know he's treated it well. My opinion is that the car will keep going strong well past 200,000 if I take care of it.

What are your thoughts? And how many miles are on your Maxima?

My 2000 Maxima has 314,498 miles (went and check before i wrote this lol) and still has the stock engine and auto trans. Both engine and trans are strong but swapping a manual trans in it before winter hits i want to do more auto x with it.

I'm a tech at a nissan dealership so all maintence has always been done when needed (but nothing out of the normal that most people would do) and other then 3 maf sensor, 5 ish wheel bearings , 2 pairs of front control arms and tie rods, 3 sets of struts (running koni with H&R springs now) and a few other things that i replaced for more performance like y-pipe , exhaust, intake its been a perfect car.

The wife's 02 has only 146k but she drives her pathfinder now so i dont expect much more mileage on it soon.

Front A pillar molding

46k miles - very windy out the other day and the black molding on the from passenger side A pillar broke free and started flapping. Pulled over and couldn’t get it back on, noticed tabs busted off so I pulled it all off. It got crazy loud in the cockpit the rest of the way home. I need to order a new one

sorry I cannot read, my car is 2017

Have an 2003 Max GLE that I bought new, Has 147,000 miles on the car. The major maintenance that's been done in order, front struts, oil pan change out, new radiator, new alternator, new AC compressor, new plugs and rocker cover oil leak fix, new power steering hose. So other than changing oil every 3000 miles, and transmission fluid swap every two years, belts and hoses about every 4-5 years, tires and brakes pads as needed, that's it. Still has plenty of power and ride is great. Hope to keep another two years. Is worth more to me than the blue book value says. Cost to keep this car up per year averaged $800, not counting oil changes. I don't do any of the maintenance myself.
