any specific detail your friend wants to know?

one thing i can guarantee is if you're the type of driver that wants to get to from point A to B with quickness, then the terrano is not for you.

pero if you're looking for brute muscle and 4wd, this can be an option.

cabin space is small. its just a car with higher headroom for cargo and higher ground clearance for a bit offroad action and floods.

engine is pretty much bulletproof pero watch out for its age. At this time, these units will be common with odometer readings breaking the 6-digit values and like my old nissan power pickup that shares pretty much everyting with the terrano, the injection pump will be needing calibration any time soon.

Airconditioning would live up to the nissan reputation but badly maintined ones might not be as cold. But then again, the terrano uses an analog a/c system so it should be easy to restore.

Local ones should cost you some 200k or so. Imported ones usually will come in petrol variants and badged as pathfinder. Pathfinders are also 3-door models only.
