I found out that a vibration from the underneath of armrest when everytime I hit accelerator. I took it to the a local service store, The mechanic said the carrier bearing went bad, they told me that I need to replace the driveshaft. Cost me $ 1500(include labor+tax) the part charge me $1100, should I buy the cheaper part from ebay better? or tell the mechanic to order the part from dealership?:?:

anyway, my car is 04 V6 around 65000 miles.. how come the carrier bearing went bad? how to cause it go bad?

Because they all go bad. Buy a refurbished one from colorado driveshaft or indiana rack and axle for less than half. Any competent mechanic can install for $200 (2-3 houres)

x2 on the advice given thus - use the search facility and spend an hour or omre reading up on how many of us have /repaired or replaced the shaft!!

At 65K you're right in the zone.
