Rx400H Batteries Under Rear Seat.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I own a 2006 RX400h with about 60K on it. Everything works well and I have never had problems with the batteries under the rear seat. I have read that they can cost $3-4,000 if they go out. Has anyone had to replace them yet? I love the way my unit rides and shifts (or doesn't) but would consider trading the unit in, if it would mean that much added expense in the future. Thanks in advance for any facts or opinions.

Read the post on this same page "Battery Replacement Cost" or something like that.......at least it's on this page currently...I too had that concern but apparently, it's not going to be a problem for another 150K or many more miles....or ten to 15 years depending on how much you drive...but I will let others that know more than me respond...Rey in LA

Based upon what I have read, there has yet to be a hybrid vehicle made by Toyota that has needed a battery pack replacement. Some Prius cars have over 250,000 miles on their original battery pack. This is one of the reasons why NiMH batteries are still being used - extreme longevity, but also because they are relatively inexpensive (compared to lithium batteries) and can be recycled.

At 60,000 miles, your RX has a long way to go before needing batteries.
