Here's your answer, it has a timing chain. Theoretically, it should last the life of the car. Changing out the timing chain is a MUCH BIGGER DEAL THAN A TIMING BELT. I hope you won't have to do that. See attached picture.

Having a timing chain versus a belt usually means that you do NOT have to worry about it. Just regular recommended maintenance is all that is required.

Yes, this is correct and these chains "should " last the life of the vehicle, BUT, if you start hearing noise from the chain and rattling, you need to take care of this. Please be advised.

I have a 2006 Nissan Altima, 2.5. Mileage is just over 100,000. Both Nissan and independent have verified there is a timing chain. In addition, I do not think Nissan would advise, in a printed manual, to tune up at 100,000. I agree with all responses above that you have received. Liz
