90k isn't a lot of miles BUT... depends on the owner(s). Best thing to do is take it to a Nissan dealer and get a pre-purchase inspection (PPI). That will tell you what you need to know and tell you whether its a good idea or not. If the current owner says no to your wanting to do this, walk.

I did this with a BMW. It cost me around 200 and was worth the warning signs I got. That said, I have 194k on my 05. And she's doing great. If the prev owner has been good about taking care of it, you're fine.

^^^THIS. Be prepared to pay a couple of hundred dollars for a full, written assessment of the car's condition. It's the best money you can invest in a new car and will give you a realistic idea of how well (or badly) its been maintained.

90k is high mileage LMAO. High mileage is 200k IMO and I would not hesitate to buy a car with 200k+ as I've bought cars with over 300k before. My daily driver just hit 200k, is a 2004 Kia and is the most reliable car I've ever owned.
