32k on my 2015 Altima 2.5 S -- still rolling pretty good. Had both the hood latch & air bag recalls done a few months ago. I paid it off early, so I hope to keep it awhile and ride in style (LOL!).

110,000 miles currently on my 2013 2.5S. No major issues -- original battery, brake fluid, cvt fluid, etc. Changed brakes (90k) and tires (60k), recently flushed the coolant (95k) and replaced spark plugs (95k). That's about it. Synthetic oil changes every 10k miles.

2014 purchased in July 2014. Put 25k on it annually, now sitting at 57k+. Averaging 29.5mpg on 75% highway miles overall. Replaced brakes already and a host of parts from hitting a spare tire back in July, but no major problems. Still only very minor scratches and no dents, so still looking good. Even though it's two years old, I still want to get a OEM wing and Stillen front lip.

86K checking in here

Got the best tires Discount Tire offered 5-10K ago (90K warranty IIRC), I think they're Michelin.
One of the best investments I've ever made.

Going to flush the brake fluid next.
Threw EBC Red's on myself and despite all efforts, they squeak like a mocking bird. Going to have a shop do a full brake job soon.

Oil changes every 3-5K and air filter change every 30K.

Cabin air filter stinks so quickly. i replaced it <10K ago and there was a mountain of leaves in the chamber where the filter sits.
Folded a paper towel tube to fit in the slot as an adapter on the end of a vacuum hose and that cleaned it up like magic.
Going to have to stop parking under trees.

Other than that, everything seems to be going smooth.

Planning a $1-2K audio upgrade that should be going in within a week.

Just turned 42k on my 2013 2.5SL. No issues other than the airbag and hood latch recalls. Tires (Continentals) will probably last another 5-10k.

I've been tracking mpg with Fuelly.com since the car was new, and I'm averaging 32.2 mpg overall. Here are a few notes about gas mileage:

1. I live in the Northeast, and when we change over to winter formula gas, my mpg falls by about 10%.
2. I've managed over 40 mpg when traveling relatively constant speed on longer highway trips. Best tank was 42. Note that these are calculated, not the numbers reported by the trip computer which is usually 3.5mpg higher than reality!
3. Mpg seems to be affected quite a bit by speed. I travel the same vacation route multiple times during the summer months and notice the best mpg (40+) when driving around 65mph. When there's no traffic and I get closer to 80 mph, I only see high 30's for mpg.

So, I wanted to make a reply and typed one up before I saw it was a 2013. But, will chime in anyway...

Keep the oil changed with a high grade synthetic and do maintenance basics as needed and you will have your car running great for a long time. I bought mine in 2011 with 62k miles. It is going to hit 270k on the way home from work today. It looks good, gets nearly 28MPG and has every bit of power it had 5 years ago. Only things done: wheel bearings on all four wheels, radiator, two headlight ballasts. Oh, I just blew out the right side of my Bose amp and will need to replace that. I found one on eBay for $130.. I commute 144 miles every day. There are 18 stop lights, so it's not all highway.

Biggest thing is: If it's an Altima, it's NOT a 350Z or 370Z. Don't think you are on a track and drive it like you are heading for a checkered flag.

2013 Sedan rolling GREAT at 134,xxx. Had the transmission replaced at 110,xxx. No other issues. 30.1 mpg average, 34ish on the highway. This is my 4th Altima, and I might never sell this one!

how much did the tranny replacement run you? Sounds good otherwise!

2016 2.5S, at 12k miles, got it on July 4th

Had a trip to Corpus Christi once and the car was great. Mostly city & traffic driving so I get 28 mpg average.
