I'm thinking of buying a 2007 Lexus GS 450 H 4 door, its a hybrid, Do I have to worry about the batteries? If so, how much would it cost to replace the batteries? also does this model have a timing belt or a timing chain? if so how much would it cost to repair approximately?

My car has 101829 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. First off, your vehicle is equipped with a timing belt. This should be changed soon if it has not already. As for the battery, I typically see these last until about 120,000-150,000 miles. If you need quotes for these, follow the links for a battery replacement and timing belt replacement to get estimates for your 2007 Lexus GS 450. If you are serious about the car, consider having a pre-purchase inspection completed by one of our independent technicians to get full disclosure of the car’s existing condition.
