I bought a cheap CV from Pep Boys for an Acura a few years ago and the joint failed after a few drives -- I think it pulled apart. Amazingly the boot kept the thing in one piece. It was all wound up. They gave me another and I didn't have any other problems with the pair.

  Well, the replacement axle is costing me about 67 bucks.  Not really a lot of 
  extra money in my estimation, and I have never, ever heard of anyone getting a 
  bad rebuilt CV for any kind of car ever. [.....]
