Nissan Terrano 2.7 TDi SE 5d Auto (ABS) (1999/V) - Owner Review

A good compromise between off-road ability and on-road competence. This car gives a solid drive at sensible speeds. Take care in the wet as grip can catch you out and both over and understeer possible.

Buy from a car supermarket, not the dealer for the best value.

Costs

Any competent mechanic can do most jobs so no need to go to dealer. Fuel economy fair for this type of vehicle.

Almost all these cars leave the factory with faulty front wheel geometry, shows as uneven front tyre wear. Insist that dealer does full check, not just tracking. Front wheel bearings will fail if not regularly greased and adjusted; dealer may not do this.
