Please advise i have a pajero 3.8 LWB 2010 but its maintained and it is in a very good condition as i bought it brand new back in 2010.
I'm thinking of buying a second hand car only for offroading and activities Hence i thought of buying a low budget car and customize it.
I believe that Nissan patrol safari is one of most powerful cars when it comes to offroading.
Do you recommend Nissan patrol safari?
If yes which models i should look for and which models i should stay away?
I saw couple of cars but at least they have 250k in mileage if not more is that okay ?
Is it necessary to get car with diff lock ?
Is it necessary the car has manual shift mood as in the gear of pajero?
PS: I am looking for maximum of 20k aed

Dear Carnity Team.
Good day! Just thought I'd share a recent vehicular performance issue I faced. Please feel free to share your thoughts on this:
Vehicle: Nissan Patrol Safari Year 2005. Not a Plus 1 car, this is my regular vehicle for all commutes.
1. My car has been in quite a good condition, During my first 2 Off road drives (Newbie) , I was able to punch through quite comfortably. I think the vehicle played a HUGE part in off-setting my inexperience- I am sure it helped me plow through a lot of dicey situations due to sheer power alone, using only the Automatic "D" gear.
2. Post my 2nd drive, returning to On-Road, I started noticing that the car felt a little different, it was as if she took a longer time to achieve prior speeds. I thought that Off-roading had caused some sort of On-road issue, and let it be.
3. During the latest drive (my 3rd) the car simply wasn't the same. I can't explain the feeling, it's as if she just was not up to it. . I wasn't able to charge up the Pink rock on both routes, I did all the FLOORING of the accelerator that I could but she simply wouldn't budge.
4.. Luckily, I just got my vehicle serviced today, and the mechanic was able to identify a certain tear in the intake pipe. His actual words were: "Raizing mein problem aata hain kya?" :😂. (Do you have any issues during full throttling?) As per him this could have contributed to the performance issue during the recent Off-road trip. PFA ref Image.
5. A new Intake Pipe costs AED 375 (Shops near Al Suwaidi Garages in Ras Al Khor), I've decided hunt for a used spare later, hence the pipe's torn section has been taped with insulation tape for the time being.
