Continuity mistake: In the cemetery scene when the Terminator uses a bazooka to fire a missile at the TX, the shot that shows the TX being launched up in the air and hitting a gravestone should have shown the car used by the TX and the road where the car was parked. In the next shot, when the TX gets up and starts to run after the hearse, the road reappears but not the parked car.

Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Kate Brewster's dad has been shot he says to go to his office. On the way there you can see his jacket is undone and you can see his shirt and tie. Yet when they enter the office it shows him sitting down with his jacket neatly buttoned up. For a guy who just got shot and is running from machines, I doubt he would worry about buttoning up his jacket.

Continuity mistake: When John crashes the Toyota truck into the rear of the silver Taurus, the car's bumper cover lands on the ground to the right of the car, between it and a parked car. When John drives away from the accident, he drives between the Taurus and the parked car, but the cover isn't there to be run over- it's now tucked under the Taurus at the right/rear corner. Then, as the crane smashes the Taurus, the cover is now well to the car's left, in the lane of opposing traffic.

When Montana Civil Defense is talking over the radio, he deactivates it at 7 seconds. It should have read 27 seconds; there had been no breaks in the scene.

Yet in the very next shot when he gets out, the truck has moved back so that the doors can open cleanly, without the T-800 backing the truck up. Then when John escapes the cage and he runs into the T-800, you can see the truck inside the clinic. It is now more than halfway inside the building.

Continuity mistake: In the crane chase scene, there is a point where the last remaining ambulance collides with the back of the Toyota. You see the ambulance back off and the right headlight is smashed and the housing is dangling. The headlights are also off. The scene cuts to the rear-view mirror of the Toyota. You briefly see the same ambulance with its lights on and both headlights are intact. Shortly thereafter, they cut to a behind-the-back shot of Arnold as the same ambulance starts to flip. The tail lights are on. It wouldn't be brake lights since there is no driver and the Terminatrix certainly wouldn't remotely apply the brakes.

Shortly afterwards, during the next conversation, it is bright daylight again and it stays so during the rest of the outdoors scenes.
