Depends on your definition of "keep driving with this could something very serious go wrong". If you drive long enough the axle will break and will render your car immobile. Although that's only in the most severe of cases and not likely to happen unless you drive it over extremely dusty and dry environments.

You're good to go for a few months, I would say.

Perhaps, but don't try to push your luck and drive around with it for months. No, chances are it wont go right away, but as with everything else that goes wrong on a car, the sooner it's fixed, the better (not to mention safer) it is for you.

An axle is ~$90 if you buy it from a shop like Lordco or Wakefield and no more than two hours if you do it by yourself. If you bring it to a shop, you're likely looking at a couple hundred dollars for them to do it.

Wakefield Sperling. It's an automotive shop like Lordco, but with much better customer service and typically better pricing.
