Why is my driveline important for my vehicle?

How do I know when to get my driveline checked?

  • If you notice a vibration or rumbling noise when you're driving down the highway, you may be experiencing a driveline vibration
  • Squeaking, grinding, clunking, or loud metal-on-metal chirping sounds can mean worn and/or unlubricated universal joints
