Unfortunately this oil consumption (quart in 1200 miles) is considered normal Toyota. It maybe reduced by replacing the piston ring. That being said , I sure would not buy this car as it will surely over time get worse and you will end up having to replace the rings. They know it has a problem but are not doing anything to resolve it. A properly sealing engine should not burn any oil.
