I was able to locate the recommended maintenance and also a reliability report from a 3rd party automotive repair website(Identafix). and I have attached that in a pdf to this message. I also work for a toyota dealership and have access to lexus recalls and TSB's And I will check to see for any major/common issues for you as well

Expert:  nelson freitas replied 11 months ago.

I have looked through all service bulletins and recalls, and I wasn't able to find anything extremely concerning.

Is there anything specific you would like me to research for you?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I heard it was basically a Toyota
Expert:  nelson freitas replied 11 months ago.

Actually there is very little if anything at all that resembles any Toyota. The engine and transmission are made for Lexus only and there are no Toyota's that share the same drive train or body.
