Hybrid system repair costs on 2006 Lexus RX400h

I've heard that replacing the induction motors on the RX 400h Synergy Hybrid system can cost over $10,000. The Hybrid system is warranted for 8 years or 96,000 miles. Has anyone had a problem with they're hybrid system? What did it cost to repair?

the toyota/lexus hybrids are the most reliable of all the hybrids. yes, some parts to the hybrid drive system are very expensive, but rarely fail. this is the reason that every hybrid owner must "count the cost" before ever buying a hybrid. there are lots of vehicles that get better fuel mileage than a RX400H and do not have the higher costs associated with a hybrid.
