My wife had a couple of knee surgeries, and we had to shelve our hiking days for a while. With this I traded in my 2001 Pathfinder with over 150,000 miles on it that was still running beautifully for the Altima.
Ever since it rolled out of the show room with 6 miles on it, it has not been back to the dealer once. This car runs like a dream and has never left me anywhere.
The brakes still have good amount of meat left on them after 56,000 miles, and the engine just keeps humming along. It has some pep to it, and gets me about 35 miles per gallon on the highway.
I had also had a 1995 Pathfinder with over 300,000 miles on it we used for hiking. I took that truck through everything and it kept going. It finally was falling apart about a 2 years ago, so I sold it for 1,500 bucks. It's still on the road today.
I am a true Nissan customer, and until I find a bad car they make, will be for life.
