New cylinder head needed on Toyota Rav4 - should I repair or get rid?

I purchased a 2006 Toyota Rav4 from a main dealer six years ago and have had few problems with it. However, a few weeks ago, an injector loosened and I’ve been told the cylinder head needs replacing. The work will cost £2500 and could rise to £4000 if all the injectors need replacing.

The dealer is offering six months warranty on the work, but I’m worried the problem will return. Should I buy a new engine or trade in the car for something newer?

If Toyota won't contribute (which is expecting a lot for a six year old car), get rid.
