    After taking it with the Toyota dealer mechanic we have found out that there is surface rust. Here are some photos of the car, let us know what you think?

    the vehicle was in east coast Massachusetts for 6 years before it transferred to owner in Bay Area California.

    There was some under coating done but not properly.

    The right rear wheel bearing was worked on but it looks like there was some leakage.

    Other then that, there is no other oil leak, transmission fluid/ transfer case leak.

    So after the mechanic checked it, we found out that right rear axle seal is leaking. Lower and upper ball joins are starting to leak grease. Let us know if there is anything major to worry about

    If there is mainaintence records of oil changes, transmission, tranfers case and coolant changes, it looks good. Get the cost to fix the items and deduct it from the asking price.

    You didn’t mention mileage, but I’d double check that the actual bearings are all in good condition (front and rear). The rear bearings require a press to replace so as long as you’re pulling the rear axle…

    Good luck !

    Monitors being reset is not good. No need to do that unless you are hiding a check engine light.

    Yes, I’d ask the seller what’s up with that.
