My wife has a 1998 Audi A4 (2.8 V6), purchased October 1997, which has about 33,000 miles on it. She took it in for a service today and they told her that she needs to replace the CV joints. Does anybody think that these CV joints have worn prematurely? I think that because of the age of the car and the number of miles driven that they have worn prematurely. The service guy at the dealer seemed to think that this was not out of the ordinary. Is there a predicted life span for these items and does driving style have any impact on their life. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
