Gena sent me this just moments ago. That makes 125k miles/200k km under our care. Nothing major has gone wrong, but here's it's current ills:
The tire pressure monitoring system says no more. Now, it may need the sensors rebuilt, as they have only been done once.
The stock A/C clutch packed it in. Nissan doesn't sell a replacement and there's not a reliable brand out there that does. This was proven after the first one I bought failed after two weeks. The second is holding strong. Why just change the clutch rather than the whole compressor? About 600 reasons ($$$)...
The stereo is dying or at least the display is. In the heat it starts fading out, I would wager that the solder joints are failing. With Gena's birthday on Tuesday I ordered her a modern Sony replacement. She's been wanting modern conveniences like Bluetooth and Apple Car Play anyway. It'll be here soon and I'll get it installed.
Other than that, it keeps on keeping on. The CVT feels weird to me, but Gena says it's fine. Sure...
Not bad! What do you mean by weird with the CVT? Have you don't a fluid flush on it?
