the cars run well into the 200k miles.

the nice thing about nissans, they don't rust. a major thing we have over hondas and yotas. the bodies last forever, so what do you do when the engine kicks the bucket (which also lasts well over 200k)?

you rebuild it or get a new one.

it wouldn't hurt you to go grab an engine out of a junk yard and rebuild it, replacing all the internals with fresh ones. drop that in and i'd warrant the car could run to 350K.

You probably don't work in a Nissan dealership, especially here in Chicago! These older Nissans do rust badly. The engine needs to be pulled out and put into another less rusty or rust-free body...:)

no, everything rusts to shit in the east lol. you guys use WAYY too much salt on your roads in the winter. that much salts corrodes bodies very prematurely. we strictly use sand on our roads.

i had a 1991 with about 170kmi and my 94 has about 130kmi, the 91 ran better than this one does, i took the motor out of the 91 cause the body rusted away and she is awaiting for the 94 to shit the bed so the 91 motor can go it

my 94 has a 91 clutch and tranny right now

love my sentra!

also we have a NX2000 and i just bought my newest project, 95 240sx

As long as you maintain the car properly, it will run well over 300k. I've seen them in the junkyards down here in the South with over 530,000 miles.

My '92 Sentra E is sitting at 294,000 right now. I did just put a 30k original mile engine and 5 speed trans in it, though. The original engine still purred like a kitten, but the main seal leaked badly, timing chain was rattling, clutch was going out, and the original 4 speed manual trans grinded going into 3rd when it was cold out. The car had not been well maintained before I bought it. Now that I have everything mechanically in excellent shape, I fully expect this car to go 500k+ with proper maintenance.

My first 92 Sentra XE had 178k on it and when I bought it, It overheated very badly, It was fine when I test drove it, But after I bought it and took it home it started overheating badly. My second and current 93 Sentra XE has the same amount of miles and purrs like a kitten. It's all in how well the car was treated before you got it, If the car was maintaned properly, you could go to 250k without any major problems. I plan on getting a JDM SR20DE to get swapped in my car in a few months, Not because the current engine runs like crap, But because I want just a little more power and the option to Turbo it later down the road.
