Now I have your attention.
There must be more than a couple of us in Australia that own Terracans!!!!
I have just turned over 20,000kms today. Not much as actual 4WD'ing but it is going great.
Up to Lightning Ridge and back to Bathurst last weekend and did my first bit on dirt roads and it went perfect. Was surprised how well it handled on corragates and rough dirt road. Travelled about 400kms around the Ridge on all types of rough roads and I was very impressed with the Terracan.
Yeh, I know I am biased towards it but hope to give it some more 4WD testing in the next few weeks.
Still very happy with my purchase as I am sure other Terracan owners are.
Cheers and now time for a cold homebrew. (It's that cold in Bathurst I don't even need to put the homebrew in the fridge).

fellow clubby has a Terracan... his only disappointment with it is it's lack of height.. something he hopes to remedy soon. It certainly takes him and his family where they want to go... and it seems a nice car!
It's a matter of what you want to do with it.... same as whether to buy a Corolla ot a Statesman .... kinda!

Hi Brian

Our Terracan is about 14 months old, we traded up from a Suzuki Grand Vitara due to space requirements. The Terracan has done approx. 16,000 kms and (touch wood) relatively fault free.

It's the wife's car, and we manage to get it off road 4 - 5 times a year. My most recent outing was to Gembrook in Victoria. It was a ball and others in the group with modified 4WDs were surprised at how the Terracan went with standard tyres.

We are really happy with our Terracan, and look forward to hearing how others feel. I am also interested in hearing about mods/accessories. The plan is to do a lift and tyres later this year.
