Should I pick up a used drive shaft and let a local garage do the repair, or should I just have the dealer install a new one? Q. There is a rumble-like vibration when accelerating in my 2012 Toyota Highlander with 165,000 miles on it. The dealer determined that the car needs a center-driveshaft replacement. The cost will be about $1,100, including labor. Do you think I should look for a used drive shaft and have it replaced at a local garage, or do you think I should get a new drive shaft replaced by the dealership? A. Replacing the driveshaft with aftermarket or rebuilt units — or even a used unit from a salvage yard — could be an economical alternative.
