You're honestly better off financing a new one with warranty at 3% for 72 months and no worries about repairs.
I just gave the Toyota Dealership $500 to finalize my offer on a Magnetic Gray 2012 Double Cab 4x4 V6 w/TRD Off-Road Package, Tow Package, Daytime Running Lights, & Tint. My payment won't be much more than had I stuck with my original plan. It's due to reach port in 7-10 days.
So.... my search has ended.
