    I'm looking at a 2012 Tundra with 61,000 miles on it my concern is when I had it checked out there was some oil around the engine they are saying that the oil leak has been repaired. I am wondering if this is the right truck for me and if I'm going to have continued problems with these oil leaks. It is the 4.7 engine. Any thoughts should I get the vehicle or avoid it.

    Welcome! Get something in writing about the oil leak repair with some kind of warranty.
    That is some low miles, should be good.:thumbsup:

    It won’t be a 4.7L in a 2012 unless it was swapped in and that’s very unlikely.

    He's right.might be a 4.6 v8.they are Good engines.the stopped making them in 2019.you can only get the 5.7 v8 now.4.6 is 310 horsepower I believe.I have a friend that has one in his 14 tundra and it runs great.I would get a written warranty and check for the dreaded cam tower leak.If not that it could just be a leaky valve cover gasket.Thatbis low miles!
