^^ I've been noticing a bad sound from my right side over the last few weeks. I'm thinking it's the CV axle. Odd thing is it only makes the sound through 1st and 2nd coming off a stop with a heavier foot. Once I hit 3rd it pretty much stops.
I found a replacement for $55 free shipping, if that don't fix the noise I'm not out much.
I don't hear the clicking noise while cornering like my last car did. This almost sounds like the teeth are slipping. Maybe there's just a bad bearing in the CV joint.
Other than that, 65 miles a day to n from work, oil change and fuel system cleaner every 3K and she runs great.
