1998 Nissan Terrano II R20 2.7 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
A great car from a disappointing corporation
The air flow meter failed at ~60000km / 4 years old causing a severe loss of power. The local Nissan dealership had experienced the same problem on 3 other vehicles of this model. He considered it a fairly common problem although Nissan corporate disagreed. The local dealer said he could replace it for A$1150 other dealerships quoted A$1395. My local turbo diesel mechanic could source and replace the part (Bosch) for A$520.
The car has been great otherwise - very comfortable and generally reliable.
I'm very disappointed with Nissan for not accepting this as a design fault and fixing it without an argument.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Yes we have a 1999 terrano II. Same problem, but we managed to get it fixed within the warranty period. Nissan wouldn't accept it was the air flow meter, but eventually had to listen to us. We also found out it was a very common problem with this particular model and age.
