Especially since the engines are often so new, there is no way to determine durability.
Don't Know but the VQ 3.5 motor was on the Ward's list for 10 straight years... That's pretty consistent. And verified in my experience with my 3.5 VQ... 306,500 miles and no leaking or burning oil... Still runs awesome.

I agree. Wards does in fact reward durability and 10 years on the list means it is a factor. Are the other things factors, too? Sure! I know lots of people with that Nissan 3.5 and all have put many, many miles on them, trouble-free. That engine has earned its rep.
