It's important to get your driveshafts checked periodically and address any issues.
What causes Volvo 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.
