Default how does a cv joint go bad in a honda civic 2008?

My friend's 2008 civic needs to have the driver side cv joint replaced according to her father who looked at it recently.

Wear, but a car as new as 2008 shouldn't be throwing a bad CV Join already. Probably some road debris that either hit the joint and/or cut the boot open causing it to lose grease.

The outer CV Joint will make a ticking/clacking noise only on turns, the inner joint will make a ticking/clacking noise more-so when driving straight.
