    Any chance that the 12v (small) battery is going bad? Have you had it checked?

    Battery has been checked twice, each time following the described failures to start. Battery is holding 90% charge, per the Toyota mechanic.

    OK, as long as you're sure he's talking about the small 12V battery in the trunk, not the large hybrid battery. This would be around the time for the 12v battery to fail (4 years+).
