Yeah, Im not going to go to those lengths to buy one.

I will check underneath and look for signs of rust...its a dealership, he has no incentive to 'sell it' like a private party would (who traded it in...to this Lexus dealership). It appears, so far, to be in outstanding shape and was cared for, dutifully and properly (based on Carfax records, which are quite detailed w frequent updates as to what was serviced on each visit to the Toyota dealership). And I dont think I'd find one with such low miles anywhere close to me either (39 k!)

Good to know there's a used 2011 success story out there!

Get a mechanic to run a diagnostic on it and check it out. Probably will cost $150 but worth it. The more expensive machines that a mechanic has can read all codes that have ever popped up on it and can tell you what problems with vehicle had in the past. In addition, do an AutoCheck as well. Competitor of CarFax but may have information that CarFax doesn't have. Used car buying tips

Also remember Hurricane Sandy happened in 2012. Could have been a flood damaged vehicle.

Ok, but since this is NY, the dealer will think that a rust-eaten truck is normal or downplay rust. And... Toyotas rust. A lot. Can't stress this enough.

The price you're quoting is for a vehicle in pristine condition (i.e. no rust) and be advised that if you're willing to travel a bit, or truck a vehicle, you can get one that's pristine for that price.

And, FWIW, my 2013 has VERY detailed maintenance records, too, lol.

Considering the fact that these things are good for 300k miles(or more) you might consider getting one with 75-100K miles. Probably be 4-5000 cheaper and you could use that money for mods, (if that's something you want to do). But, unless the owners have kept it in a garage when the roads were salted I would consider trying to find one from the southeast. Like others have said, you need to take a close look at the underside for rust.

Will do, folks...Just so you all know, I have bought used vehicles before, so I know the general things to look out for - and rust is always numero uno, no matter the car - and I've even paid a mechanic for an inspection before purchase of my last vehicle. I may do so again. I'm uninterested in high mileage versions, I have had good luck with low miles/older cars in the past, so I'm sticking with that philosophy for now.

Just a quick update...I got to test drive the 4Runner yesterday and it drove, braked and handled very well. My visual inspection saw only 2 minor flaws, a door ding underneath the driver's handle (PDR could likely fix this cheaply) and the previous owner put a gluey dash mounted air freshener that left a bad stain on the dash (about 2 inches in diameter). I'm going back to see it again on Tuesday so they can put up on a lift for me and I can check for rust. Otherwise, its as pristine inside and out as it looked in the photos...It is truly in amazing shape for a 2011 model!!

Is there an area you guys recommend I should focus on for my rust inspection while it is up in the air? Thanks in advance.

You couldn't have just crawl underneath to look at the rust? That's the first thing I would have done. Do a good inspection of the frame, suspension parts, differentials. Have them take off any skids. Otherwise risky proposition to actually go back to a dealer and look at it. That's always how they get you, when you keep coming back to them.
