The GS 450h is covered by a basic warranty, which entails coverage for 48 months or 50,000 miles.
This basic warranty covers repairs and adjustments needed in materials or workmanship of parts supplied by Lexus. The powertrain warranty covers 72 months or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Since the GS 450 Hybrid is a new vehicle, predicted reliability is difficult to determine, but based only on the high quality of other Lexus vehicles, it is likely that this vehicle will score well over time. One notable insight from About.com observes that "if you are skittish about what some say is the unproved reliability of electric/hybrid engineering then maybe you should wait a couple of years on this one to see what pans out."
