I have a Nissan Terrano 2 2.7 TDI. I am generally quite happy with the vehicle, but ..... there is virtually no air flow through the vehicle, I can hear the recirculate/flow thru flap operating but still almost no air flow, even with window slightly down. As I am planning a trip thru the centre, I would like the air cond system to be more efficient.
I am finding it a little hard to find offroad accessories.
I would also be keen to hear any advice you may have re the Terrano 2.

Re the Tru-Blu camper trailers I would be very interested to hear any comments regarding these trailers.

We have an older Terrano (1992) 2.7 - and same hassle with air circulation - took it to an aircon bloke who said thats as good as it gets - unfortunately - we have a sun roof so opening that helped a lot in the north of the country - as did opening the back windows - without being blown to bits.

I guess the sun roof rules out a roof rack as an accessory.

Safe travels

Shaker, Dad has one of these Terranos and to be quite honest with you I think that it is a great little car. have heard a few bad comments re handling on the dirt etc but I personally am yet to fault it. Air-con here in Darwin is not adequate, I don't know why. I think the mob that make it must live south of the pole or something. It gets better fuel economy than my Suburban too. Doesn't answer your question, just a bit of moral support to let you know you're not the only one with a problem.

Thanks for the comments.
It is a shame because the vehicle seems to do everything else very well.
It tows a very heavily built & equipped off road camper trailer easily.
I could be happier with the economy though, seems about 11.5 litres per 100km.

I don't know if the same situation applies to you but a mate of mine with a '97 Terrano 2 had a similar problem recently and it turned out that the air vent system has a filter in it and his was clogged up with dust etc. To service it you have to .... sorry 'bout this ... take the dash out and buy a new filter.
He had his done at an auto sparky and it cost him a bit.
As I said, I cannot be sure that you have the same problem.

I had the petrol Terrano, 97 model, and sold it in 2000. Great vehicle although a little under powered. Great rear articulation.
But the airflow did have a filter accessible through the glove box. A little tricky to get to but worth cleaning. Cheers john B

Thanks again for the replies ... very informative. I'll look for the filter & either give it a clean or replace it.
Any comments on fuel economy for the 2.7 TDI would also be appreciated.
