Passenger side rear wheel "knuckle" broke off where support arm to vehicle attaches. This causes rear wheel assembly to loose structural support. Rear wheel is then free to twist in all directions causing loss of control of the vehicle. At highway speeds this can cause a catastrophic accident. The "knuckle" is cast aluminum and has no moving parts which can wear out.
