I currently own a 2009 Cube with 156,000 miles on the clock. Anyone else has a high mileage Cube that's trouble free?

This week I have changed the shocks, top engine mount, pcv, wheel hub and everything feels great.
However, just wondering if anyone had changed the water pump or timing chain at such high mileage?

I'm thinking of keeping this vehicle until it dies and felt that I just need it to go over 200K for me to let it go.
Any thoughts?

my 09’ cube has over 300,000 miles on it that I put on er’. It is a 6 speed, for some reason that top motor mount has to be replaced, but i have done the hubs and shocks...
Few other replacement parts, but what a great ride!!! Gonna try for 500k

My 2009 Cube just hit the 500000 km mark tonight. Never replaced timing chain, water pump, shocks, transmission, rad or anything major. Have replaced 2/4 wheel bearings. It's been a fantastic, reliable vehicle for the past 12 years.

My cube has 149,554 mile on it I bought it at 137,000 miles Ive had it over a year and I drive alot I replaced the tires when I first bought it and had catalytic converters replace and added a cat back exhaust system.I also had the transmission replaced brand new..the CVT transmission are known to fail if they aren't properly maintained.I believe my cube only had these repairs done due to the fact I drive alot and I do ride share (Uber Lyft) besides that the Nissan cube has been a great car to me and I recommend it to many people they seem reluctant to get one because the car is so different but once I explained to them the dynamics of it they soon like it and see it in a different light.i plan to keep my cube as long as it humanly and mechanically possible.it's an amazing car!it's exciting to see other cubes on the road and us cube drivers often interact with each other sometimes talk about our cat in parking lot.it's a cube community!

My 2012 Cube with a 6 speed has 42,000 miles on in. I bought it in Oct. 2020 with only 36K. It was for sale at a mom and pop dealer for 13 days. The guy said he would have been able to sell it the first day if it were an CVT automatic. The car had been a Casino show car for two Nissan dealers in Las Vegas (Note the gold pin striping). That's what attributed to the low milage. Lucky for me I had been hoping for a 6 speed manual. I paid $6,500 and have already driven it from Phoenix Arizona to Oakland California, round trip, twice. The first thing I did was change the oil to Mobil 1 Full synthetic and also the transmission gear oil to Mobil 1 Synthetic. I had my previous vehicle, a 94 Nissan D21 pickup for 21 years after having bought it in 1999 for $6K. It had 40K miles. I also changed to Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil and gear oil after I bought it. I sold it a month ago at 284,000 miles for $2,250 dollars. Not bad for a problem free 27 year old truck. During the 21 years that I drove it I only had to replace the alternator ($80 for a rebuilt one). If you purchase a used cube, don't assume the seller put in synthetic oil even if the oil looks clean. Take it from someone who has rebuilt 3 engines (small block Chevys) and one Mazda automatic transmission. The fluids are the lifeblood of engines and transmissions. Cube CVTs should have he fluid changed every 60K miles if you want to delay having to pay $4,000 for a new one.
