Not much really. Tail light bulb at 1k, 15k and 20k miles.

Thermostat at 5k miles.

Front brake pads at 18K and 4 new tyres at 22k (Bridgestone Dueller 610).

Sold car at 31k, 5 years old.

General Comments:

Great car. Good ride quality for a 4x4. Build quality good and reliability excellent. Dealer service Okay but did not inspire much confidence. 3 year warranty good.

Only down side was fuel consumption, 26 mpg not very good for a turbo diesel. Tyre wear not good either although possibly not bad for a 4x4.

Interior stood up well to everyday use including camping holiday's. Towed a small trailer full of camping gear as though it was not there.

Only reason for selling was increase in family size and 3 doors not practical.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have owned a Terrano for 12 months and have had no mechanical problems. Build quality is good but the ride on rough outback roads is less than acceptable. I am looking for suitable enhancements to lift the ride height and improve the ride. Offroad performance is however very good with the turbo diesel engine. Fuel economy is disappointing for a diesel. Overall I am quite happy.
