 Checking the CV Joint should be part of your Regular Maintenance .

CV Joint Failure
Constant velocity joints (CV joints) are found on many cars and even some trucks.
Though vehicle manufacturers are reintroducing rear-wheel drive on more new cars, over 80 percent of all the cars on the road today are front-wheel-drive, and every one has four CV joints.
The outer CV joints are usually the ones that most often need to be replaced.
There are two reasons, one is that the outer CV joints wear more than the inner
CV joints, The outer boots on the outer joints are more apt to fail than the ones on the inner joints.

CV Joint boots
A boot failure is bad news for any CV joint because it dooms the joint to premature failure. A spit, cracked loose or torn boot will throw grease, draining the joint of its vital fluids = lubricants. Sooner or later the joint will run out of Lubricant, which is a bad thing for the metal-to-metal surfaces. They must withstand height pressure loads and constant friction. A boot that doesn’t seal can also allow outside contaminants, such as road splash and dirt, to enter the joint and havoc havoc on its precision machined and polished surfaces. If the boot problem isn’t discovered almost immediately, joint failure will usually follow within a few thousand miles.

Some symptoms of CV Joint failure:

1) Popping or clicking noises when turning.
2) A clunk sound when accelerating, decelerating or when putting the car into drive.
3) A vibration or shudder when accelerating.
4) A growling or humming noise.
