I was just wondering due to the frequency of trips we take to florida and it being a 12-16 hour highway drive depending on where we go, should I be concerned about the driveshaft failing on us? We have about 70k miles on it.
You will be fine... Everybody has blown that driveshaft thing completely out of proportion. The only 2005-2010 V6 driveshaft I have heard of grenading real time is afixer's which blew up on a dyno at like 130-140mph I believe. It is mainly with the 2005s that did not have retaining pins on the yolk and they could back out.
