Complaint - Suspension

THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN MAINTAINED PER MANUFACTURES RECOMMENDATIONS. IT IS NOT USED OFF ROAD AND RUN UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS. WITH NO WARNING AND NO PREVIOUS NOISE THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL HUB/BEARING FAILED. THE BEARING CAME APART AND THE WHEEL WAS SO LOOSE IT WAS WALKING 1-2 INCHES SIDE TO SIDE. HAD MY WIFE NOT BEEN DRIVING SLOWLY THERE COULD HAVE BEEN A HORRIFIC WRECK. LUCKILY SHE WAS CLOSE TO A SHOP WHEN IT HAPPENED. I HAVE NOT FIXED IT AS OF YET BUT AM IN THE PROCESS NOW. I KNOW I WILL NEED A HUB, BEARING AND THE BRAKES WERE KNOCKED OUT BY THE WALKING MOTION. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RECALL ON THIS. I SEE ON THE INTERNET WHERE A LOT OF INDIVIDUALS HAVE HAD THE SAME ISSUE.
