Can You Drive with a Bad CV Joint?

Driving with a bad CV joint can be dangerous.
In a worst-case scenario, the joint can completely fall apart while the car is in motion, causing you to lose control.
With a Bad CV Joint
If you start to notice symptoms of a bad CV joint, you probably have a little time to take action, likely between a few weeks and a few months.
However, it would be best if you did not drive on a bad CV joint or put off repairs for too long. In addition to risking a dangerous scenario on the road, the longer you drive on a bad CV joint, the more damage you may cause to your car, resulting in more costly repairs.
If you end up waiting too long and breaking down, or worse, causing an accident, you can expect additional costs, including towing and any damages to your car or other cars.
