Q: keep or junk

asked by on

just replaced transmission two weeks ago and the drive shaft just fell off...would you keep the Envoy or junk it?

My car has 195000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

I would fix the drive shaft and continue to drive it after spending all the money on the transmission. If you need help with this, reach out to a certified technician who will be able to diagnose and replace your driveshaft if need be.
