Alternator was dead when I purchased it (104,000).
Many fuses were blown (104,000).
Windshield wiper motor is gone. (104,000)
Rear left caliper was worn out. (104,000)
There is an electric leak from the rear lights. (104,000)
CV Boot broken at 110,000.
Weather stripe pealing off at 104,000.
ABS controller not working at 104,000.
Brake light switch (under the pedal) bad at 110,000.
Two engine mounts at 110,000.
Shaking at 65MPH on highway, needed an alignment (120,000).
Air intake box had a crack and needed to be sealed (120,000).
Water pump replaced at 122,000.
One major coolant hose under the engine started to leak (124,000).

The car was obviously abused when we got it. The paint was very good. Inside is dirty, leather seats had some wears and rips. The engine and transmission were good. But it definitely had an electric problem before: dead alternator, blown fuses, ABS controller unit dead, a small electric leak from rear combination lights. But it's a cheap car, so we bought this 11 year-old car.
The alternator was changed at 104,000 when we got it, and recently again at 120,000. The first one stopped putting enough voltage and the dash/front lights started to dim intermittently. It might just be a bad alternator. We fixed the electric leak by ourselves.
The car drives great. It's smooth and quiet, except some rattling noise from lower glove box. Handling is good too, very responsive. The interior is well designed. Lack of cup-holder is a major problem. Seats are comfortable, I especially like the waist support design.
The repair cost is reasonable. Nissan parts are easy to find both new and used. I replaced some parts myself with used ones. For a car with 11 years of service and some abuse history, I figured the repair and overall condition is reasonable.
