... if TWO things:

1)you neglect a windshield leak right above the transmission shifter, from the whereabouts of the small lid overhead, at the dome light switches and moonroof control. The leak drips down right into the transmission shifter mechanism, and from there water goes down onto the front ujoint. It will rust very soon.

2)So, avoid placing cups of drinks on that broad panel around the shifter as well. Any liquid spilled on it is a potential rusting failure of the front ujoint.

NORMALLY, under the transmission shifter, there is a protective rubber cup. Inspect it for cracks from heat.
