Simple question - I drive 20K miles a year, and plan to hold on to my next car for around 10 years....meaning my next vehicle will have around 200K miles on it before I start looking again. If the Q50 is maintained properly, do you all see it lasting that long without major issue? I get the vibe on this board that most of you lease for a few years, then move on to something else. I know the InTouch is a bit messy at the moment, but is the engine, etc., rock solid? Is this car meant to have that many miles put on it, or is it smarter to focus elsewhere?

That's a good question Foamykeg. But if your "Q50 is maintained properly" over the years & miles AND it is the 3.7 gas only engine, I would certainly think that 10 years & 200K in miles is possible.

Now those of us interested in the Hybrid motor would probably not make that same time & mileage - or at least it would be a great and somewhat scary unknown since Nissan/Infiniti only warranties the Hybrid components for 8 years and 100,000 miles. You'd be out of that in miles in 5 years. :)

The mileage he drove will paid off the hybrid itself in 2 or 3 years. The rest is all saving and money to his pocket. He can use the extra money he save for battery replacement or any major maintenance needed.
Anyway, any car should be no problem driving 200,000 miles these day as long as he maintain the car and drive like a real gentleman. (Not PSY Gentleman, that's is :)

I've seen Nissan engines lasting 200-250K miles if they are maintained properly. I don't see why the Q50 non-hybrid wouldn't fall into the same category. My 96 Maxima had 190K miles on it before I traded in for my TL, and it was still driving beautifully. The Q50 should be able to last a long time if well maintained. :)

I concur with the group consensus here. This is the same powertrain Nissan has been refining for 10+ years. Not much new under the hood in the gas model. As long as you don't brake suddenly with a ski in the pass-through that shoots through the cabin and nails the Intouch screen dead-center, 200k miles should be doable with oil, belt, etc. changes.

The expected reliability of the gasser V6 is THE main reason I did not go for the hybrid, since I plan to keep the car for at least 10 years. I wanted to keep my car config as simple as possible, mechanically. THe NIssan V6 has been consistently awarded as one of Ward's 10 best for many years. The timing chain used versus a timing belt helps too.

The engine and transmission will last 200k miles easily.

It is all of the electronics and interior you have to worry about. It can be a pain if the navigation and InTouch stopped working or your interior trim is falling apart.

Maybe that would actually fix it :confused:
That is a solid 10. LOOOL

Foamykeg,

You and I are in the same boat (hopefully not the Titanic). My current TL has 225,000 miles and I'm eagerly waiting to see if they fix the InTouch issues before buying. Also, waiting for them to start dealing on the car. I want a car that's going to be pretty reliable for 7-10 years and 200,000 miles. I had a '97 Maxima before my '04 TL that was pretty reliable. I got rid of that Maxima after about 130,000 miles or so, and to this day think I got rid of it too soon.

I was actually going to buy a G35 because my Maxima had been a good car, but while waiting, saw the '04 TL in spyshots and bought one within a month of it being on sale. The 2015 TL probably will be released in the Spring or Summer, so who knows - this time I may get the Nissan/Infiniti.

I got 1990 (brand new) Maxima and drive to 2010 with 220,000 kms on and no problems at all. In 2010 I got the G37X very satified, however I traded in with the 50S for safty features.

I think you have no problems for 10 years in the Q50 engines.

My 95 maxima is still going strong 240000 miles on it. And my 06 maxima has 164000 on it ( son now drives it)... I would expect the same out of my q50.

Keep in mind I really didn't baby the 95, I pretty much abused it, but I was more attentive to the '06.

We must be following each other around. I had a '97 Maxima followed by an '04 TL. lol.

220,000kms is not equal to 200,000 miles. When we in the states use K after something, it denotes 1,000.

200,000 miles is roughly equal to 321,868km. Still, I stand by my original statement. These are fancy Nissans with ubiquitous, well-known engines and 321,868km over a decade should be doable. :cool:
