Plot hole: The T-X did not hear Catherine in the Animal Hospital when she was only a few feet away and breathing loudly. Considering the scope of some of her technology, one would assume she would easily find her.
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 the T-850 walks around at the gas station, shopping, he fills up the shopping basket, and one of the bags of chips can't fit in the basket. However in the next clip, the basket is half empty and there is plenty of room for the two boxes of candy he grabs at the counter.

Continuity mistake: When Kate gets the phone call in the middle of the night to goto the pet clinic, her phone is a white+blue Nokia 8310. Later on when she is calling from the back of the pet truck and it loses reception and the camera goes onto the phones, its now an all blue Nokia 51xx (I think) series phone.

Continuity mistake: In the scene were John, Kate and the Terminator find the RV, when John says to Kate, that Scott's death wasn't her fault, she is sitting in the passenger seat of the broken down Hearse. Then in the next shot Kate completely disappears and reappears when the Terminator mentions the TX is going to kill Robert Brewster.

Revealing mistake: When John, Kate and the Terminator are in the Winnebago, there is a shot that's facing Kate where John says to her that they're going to pull the plug on Skynet and that the bombs won't fall. In this shot, look at John's hair. The green screen is reflected onto it. It is visible throughout the rest of the scene.
Continuity mistake: After the first two fireman jump out of the fire truck, Arnold climbs in and says "Get out" to the other fire fighters. When the next two fireman jump out, the first two are not seen on the road behind them. Also, when Arnold changes gears on the fire truck none of the four fire fighters are seen on the road.
Factual error: When Arnold is done shooting at the cops in the graveyard scene, there are birds singing in the background. No way that any birds would be left in that area (not to mention singing) after at least 15 machine guns have been firing for more than 2 consecutive minutes, not to mention the cop car exploding.
Continuity mistake: When the Terminator and John are talking while driving the pet truck through the desert with Kate in the back, keep watching out the Terminator's side. In the distance, you can see about three huge cone-shaped trees and every time the Terminator talks, they're always in the shot. In one shot, there's about five, then it's always three again.
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the gas station, Arnie removes the iron bar from the truck's doors and discards it. The truck drives off and is seen to have no bar holding the doors closed. There then follows a lengthy conversation between John and Kate. At the end of this conversation the truck is seen driving down a slight hill just before the scene changes to Scott's apartment- look closely and you'll see the iron bar on the doors, despite Arnie having removed it.

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.
Continuity mistake: When the Terminator gets in the Toyota Tundra with John (after destroying the crane that the T-X was in), you can see that there is no seat belt in the seat belt holder. But when the Terminator is examining John for "brain trauma", there is now a seat belt in the seat belt holder.
Continuity mistake: After Arnold has taken the fire truck, John is chased by a single police car. The overhead shot pans left to show the crane approaching from John's right. This shot shows the crane arm is pointing rearward. But when the crane bursts through the wall a split-second later, the arm points forward.
Continuity mistake: After John crashes the truck into the silver car, the empty emergency vehicles approach from behind. At the right, a red sedan is shown from the rear with a broken tail light and mangled bumper. A few shots later, the crane comes around a corner and hits this red car, but before the actual collision, the tail light and bumper of the car are fine.
Factual error: All over the particle accelerator you can read about the dangerous magnetic fields that are caused by it. the radiation that is created by the accelerated particles is mentioned nowhere although there is no possibility to find a wall without radiation warnings in a science lab with a real accelerator.
Continuity mistake: When John and Kate are in the bunker and they are talking about why they are there, we see John look down at the timer. It reads one minute 16 seconds. 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.
Continuity mistake: When John and the vet arrive at the mountain in their Cessna, the sun casts a shadow straight under the plane. The very moment they walk through the door into the hangar integrated in this mountain (which in the film is immediately after they landed), their shadows are in front of them indicating a low sun.
Visible crew/equipment: During the "target acquired" chase scene when the red pickup truck flips over after going through the split semi-trailer there is an overhead shot shown of the action. The next shot when the T-X looks in her rear view mirror at the action, the camera crane that filmed the previous overhead shot is visible in the background.
Continuity mistake: When the T-800 first drives the truck into the Vet clinic, the truck has crashed into the building, so that the doors are inside the clinic. 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: When the TX's crane is pulling away after destroying the building facade, it is seen from the high angle that the top of the cab is clean. When the crane is shown again the cab roof is covered in cables and other debris. Also note it remains this way until catching up with Connor in the Tundra truck and then the crane is clean like it was run through a car wash.
Continuity mistake: When the Terminator is hitting the T-X with the fire extinguisher, she puts her fist up and punctures it so the Terminator chucks it down on the floor. We see it on the floor again, but when the Terminator is running towards the T-X you see where the extinguisher was but now it has vanished.
Continuity mistake: During the shooting scene at the cemetery, note one of the stones (rectangular from the left) behind T-101 when he comes out carrying a coffin. You can see it has 5 holes - 3 left, 2 upper right side. However, a few seconds later, it has 6 holes, but their position has completely changed, 3 upper side, 3 right side.
Continuity mistake: When the T-X steals the car in the beginning, she's weaving in and out of traffic and from her view we see that she is coming up to a truck in the right lane. The view changes to view from outside the car and she's turning into the right lane and driving straight ahead. The truck is gone.
Continuity mistake: When John, Kate and Arnie are at the cemetery getting the weapons from Sarah's casket, Kate pulls a handgun on Arnie. He looks up and is facing his right with his legs turned in that direction. They go back to Kate and then back to Arnie. Now he is turned to the left.
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.
Continuity mistake: When the three leads leave the rest area in the mobile home to go find Cate's father, it's about 3.30pm (we hear reference to 6.18 pm and it's in 2 hours 53 minutes). After the conversation where T101 tells that he killed John, you see the car from the outside. You can see on the shadows that the sun is so low, it must be very close to sunset. Shortly afterwards, during the next conversation, it is bright daylight again and it stays so during the rest of the outdoors scenes.

Continuity mistake: When the TX pulls up to Jim's Burgers, notice the umbrellas in front of the store and the "in-out" arrows on the road. Asking for Jose Barrera at the drive-through speaker, she drives in and shoots him from the passenger side of the car and exits on the same side of the building she came in. You can see the front of the store with umbrellas upon entry and exit, yet the speaker has disappeared.
Revealing mistake: When the T-X is trying to get Kate out of the car, she rips the door off the truck and pulls Kate out. Kate goes flying through the air and lands on the tarmac. However, if you watch the floor closely just as she lands, you can see that the floor actually wobbles and shakes. It is obviously not real.
Revealing mistake: During the opening credits, the Terminatrix steals a woman's car. She uses her mobile phone to dial a number and successfully connect to a computer. However, you can see that the phone has no reception, making a phone call impossible. Battery life is the right hand gauge, and signal strength is the left hand one, with no bars.
Continuity mistake: When the Terminator is slamming his fists again the truck trying to fight his new programming, the damage to the truck changes between each camera angle. Watch the passenger front tire collapse under the truck in one scene and then it's just at an angle on the next.
Continuity mistake: When John talks to Catherine while sitting at the table in a moving RV, watch the explosives he is working on. Position of the charges changes with every shot facing Catherine. At one point they completely disappear from the table leaving only the Glock 18 handgun, and just a second later the table shown full of explosives again.
Revealing mistake: In the driving scene after the first run in with the TX, the T-850 is driving the truck, John is in the passenger seat, and Kate is locked in the back. The T-850 has to cut open his abdominal area to pull out the nuclear power cell that has been damaged, and dispose of it. In the shot before he begins cutting, you see the T-850's chest is flat as it should be under his shirt. But once you see him begin cutting into his abdominal area, the top of his chest has a ridge. This is an obvious show of the prosthetic chest the actor scoot up against to be as his chest and house the fake skin, metal, and power cell for the scene.

Continuity mistake: When the TX is driven into the wall at the vet clinic the parked car gets knocked into the gas tanks and there's a massive explosion. A few scenes later the TX drives the crane out of the yard where the gas tanks were. The crane is in pristine condition and showing no damage from the explosion, despite being parked behind the gas tanks.
Continuity mistake: When the T-X is asking Kate where John is, the Terminator drives the truck into the T-X and continues driving. As this happens you can see the truck misses the sports car the T-X was driving just before it hits the vet. Yet in the next shot, the truck magically collides with the sports car despite having just missed it.

Continuity mistake: When John, Kate, and the Terminator arrive at the crypt we get a close-up of the memorial plaque. There is a visible seam or crack in the marble that runs behind the plaque and there are no other seams or cracks visible for several inches all around the plaque. Right before the Terminator punches through the marble, you can see that there is now a seam or crack in the marble just above the plaque, and nothing running behind it.
Continuity mistake: In the scene when the TX, disguised as Kate's fiance, is in a car with the two policemen on their way to find Kate, the TX kills the police officer who is driving by sticking its hand through his chest. His partner sitting in the passenger seat immediately reaches for his gun, causing his seatbelt to slide off his right shoulder. Cut to a shot from behind him and the seatbelt is back on the same shoulder.
