I own a 2004 Civic with 200k miles on it. I have a close friend with an Altima from around that time (04 or 05).
At the age of either of those cars, you're going to have plenty of normal maintenance costs. Both are probably due for a timing belt and water pump, and starters and alternators, if not recently replaced, could go at any time. Other normal wear items, such as brakes and suspension will also need replacing if they haven't been recently. That's just the nature of used cars with high mileage.
Having said that, if these cars have been properly cared for, they will both have plenty of life left in them. Make sure that neither has been in any significant accidents and don't have "Salvage" titles, as this will affect their resale value and in some cases their safety.
I own a 2004 Civic EX, and aside from an airbag recall (replaced for free) and normal maintenance, it's been bulletproof, as have been the last 6 Hondas I've purchased for myself or my family (my dad has a long commute, and has had two of his Civics crashed into).
Nissans are fairly reliable, but I'd put them a notch below Hondas & Toyotas in overall reliability - and their resale value reflects this.0
At 290 thousand miles that thing is shagged beyond repair. That car will be a money pit1
honda buy it1

I had a Honda Civic for my first car though it was older (99) and it was a great car. It's good on gas and mine never gave me any problems, so the civic is my vote!1
Nissan has less than half the miles and is newer. Get that one.0
