the driveshaft can get tired

USA Today: Ford, Volkswagen, Toyota, Porsche, Tesla among 1M vehicles recalled: Check car recalls here

In the NHTSA report, the automobile manufacturer said the driveshaft can get tired and break. A broken driveshaft can cause a driver to lose drive power, or the vehicle may roll away when the gear is shifted to park without applying the parking brake. Nissan warns that both scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.

So, yeah, "metal fatigue", and that's a hell of a way for USA Today to reveal that they're using an LLM to rewrite press releases to introduce errors...
