The nissan has 109,250 miles on it.

Just getting broken in ;-) Cars should last at least 200,000 miles these days, if they get the recommended maintenance (oil changes, 30,000-mile checkups, whatever).

But since it's a 2011, looks like you're putting ~20,000 miles on your car/year. Is that because of a long commute or road trips--is there any way you could drive less to help your car last longer?

I note that plenty of people who could easily afford a new car don;t buy one because they're frugal or just not "car people." My son, who's an almost 37-year-old teacher who makes ~$70k, is still driving a 98 Toyota (18 yrs old) with well over 200,000 miles on it. He's also never bought a brand new car.
