A drive shaft is basically a rotating tube made of a very tough metal. Its core purpose is to transfers torque from your Mercedes vehicle’s transmission to its differentials
Since the Mercedes is primarily a high performance vehicle, its drive shaft has to deal with a lot of vibrations at very high speed while simultaneously delivering a lot of torque to maintain both speed and stability. This is why it has to be both light weight while being powerful enough to withstand constant vibrations and at the same time it must be solid enough to endure extended periods of usage.
However, it is ultimately a component and just like all other automobile parts (irrespective of brand) it also has a certain life span. Once it has performed a finite number of rotations it should be replaced forthwith.
If you do not replace the drive shaft of your vehicle, you might end up in big trouble because overuse can make it brittle and it might break completely, under the strain. If such an eventuality were to occur on a highway, while driving at a high speed it would have near catastrophic results.
