Problem Description and Possible Solution
After 60,000 miles, the front outer half-shaft boots tend to tear and leak grease. In most cases, only the boot will have to be replaced; however, if it is not repaired soon enough, the half-shaft may need to be replaced. The front outer boots are put under heavy stress because of their involvement with the suspension when making turns.
Average mileage: 100,073 (50,000–207,000)
Drive Trains affected: Automatic Transmission, Manual Transmission

Second time I've had this issue since purchasing this vehicle.
Based on price made more sense to replace axle, which came with CV boots, rather than replacing individual CV boot.
Mechanic showed me the tear and oil all over the place.
have replaced both boots in the past 2 years, Dealer just told me that I have a crack in the new one already...I am more than cautious about turning too sharply, I just cant get past how much they charge to replace each-upwards of $600
