I'm on my second 2.7Tdi SWB Terrano, the first had 99,000 on the clock and was a great truck. We sold it, missed it very much and then found a 98 model with 27,000 and one aged owner who used it for 2 caravan trips a year and serviced it to the letter. Only £2300!
We use ours to tow a 1500kg german built caravan and it will pull the thing anywhere. The 4WD system is 'old school' with proper low range and levers for switching from 2WD to 4WD and low range. Ground clearance is the same as a LR90 and in the words of my mechanic friends 'Nissan 2.7 diesels will run on pig's piss!'
They are car like inside but the mechanicals are properly tough, and we have never had a problem with either of ours.
We like it so much we wouldn't swap it for anything newer, and I am considering using it for a 4x4 safari in Morocco in the future. The only drawbacks are a lack of off roading equipment for this model, so skid plates and snorkels are rare, and the storage space is nowhere like as good as a LC80 or LR110. But it can match both off road, and in SWB form can get places the bigger cars cannot get.
As you can tell we are big fans.
