It's really a tough question. It completely depends on how well the car is maintained and if it was really taken care of by the previous owner. If the car has all the maintenance and services done I don't see any reason why it wouldn't run for another 130,000+ miles.

Mine has 133,000 miles and runs like a champ, if it's well maintained 250,000 is perfectly reasonable, heck, I've seen 4th gens with over 400,000 miles

I agree, Definitely over 130k. Expect to reach 200k, unless you are abusive. My '95 GLE has an automatic tranny. It has broken the 250k benchmark and shows no signs of weakness or wear, including the body!

My maxi has 330,000kms. About 205,000 miles. In that time, ive blown 2 trannies, 1 coilpack and one engine. The first tranny blew due to a 5000rpm clutch drop with slicks. The second was junk from a wreckors. Coilpack, is a pretty normal wear item, especially on maximas. The engine ran fine at 329,000kms, one of the lifters was a little noisy, but this engine had a very hard life, it was brought up to 7500rpm on a regular basis back in my naturally aspirated days. tons of high speed runs, track days, burnouts, everything. It blew, while i was racing a modded eclipse GS-T. Went from 3rd at redline to 2nd, and hit a indicated 8200rpm on my SAFC2. These things are very very reliable. Mines currently turboed, and its running awesome. 200K miles is normal on these. If maintained correctly it can go for along time. Apparently some people on maxima.org have 300K miles + and one guy has like 479K miles.

I wish mine still had 41k!!! It is now 151k and now having a few sensor related issues, but still runs as great as the day I bought it!! I would definitely go for it!!!!!

My Maxima (2,0) 1998 a32 qx manual transmission has gone 270.000 km. Running fine, and I think it is on the original clutch still.
