Lexus GS 450h: how reliable?

Lexus GS 450h: how reliable? How good are they really? I have a 2006 GS 450h and the hybrid batteries failed. I was told by a Lexus garage they cost €4,500 approx to replace. Nice car to look at and drive but when they fail you won't buy another one - that's if you can sell it. It has 143k miles on the clock only. All I can say is don't buy one with over 70k on the clock. Maybe you have better ideas on this?

Should this high-mileage Hyundai i30 be ok?

Hi, I am looking to buy a 2011 Hyundai i30. However it has high mileage at 76,600 miles - should timing belt be replaced at this stage and what else should I be wary of with such high mileage?

Thanks
