What happens when your drive shaft goes out on my Fiat?
When your driveshaft goes out or fails you will hear a loud grinding or clunking noise as the driveshaft breaks. It can lead to the wheels no longer turning properly and a loss of control of the car. It will very likely also lead to further damage to the suspension and drivetrain.
It's important to get your driveshafts checked periodically and address any issues.
What causes Fiat a driveshaft to break?
A drive shaft must rotate extremely fast to do its job, so it must stay weighted down and balanced precisely. If the car is backed up into another object, the impact can disrupt this balance and cause the drive shaft to break. Sometimes even hitting a curb too abruptly can break the drive shaft.
Lack of lubrication can sometimes also cause damage to the driveshaft and its related components.

You can usually expect it to last 70,000 miles or even the entire lifetime of a car in an ideal situation. How long the drive shaft lasts depends a lot on driving habits, vehicle modifications and other external factors.
