We own a 1998 Maxima GLE that had 3 miles on the odometer when we drove it off the lot. It now has almost 153,000 miles on it. My husband is legally blind and doesn't drive, so this is our only vehicle and is used for everything. We've had a few problems over the last 9 years, but most of them have not been what I consider major. Expensive, but not major.
2 weeks - the Bose Radio system went out. Replaced under factory warranty.
59,000 - Transmission replaced under factory warranty
84,000 - December 03 - replaced steering rack/cv boot
97,000 - August 04 - replaced Evaporator in ac
June 06 - Replaced radiator. Blew up while driving in 6 lanes of heavy traffic. Quite an experience!
138,000 - December 06 - Replaced Valve Cover Gaskets and oil pressure switch/sending unit - sensor on right passenger airbag
152,000 - September 07 - Replaced ac compressor and electric fan motor.
Other than that, just general maintenance, tires and minor stuff.
It's a great car and I hope we continue to get good service out of it.
I hope this gives you the information you needed.
