Then something major happened that caused him to defect from the Autobot cause and join Megatron?
If only we actually knew.
May be true. He and Bulkhead had a strong history, he has the build of a possible Ex-Wrecker.
I think he could have been a part of the Decepticon wreckers, if decepticons had a wrecker part of their team
Decepticon Wreckers are Dreads and Breakdown looks nothing like a Dread.
I don't know if he's enough of a sociopath to fit with Squadron X.
A lot of fans seem to think so because of the animosity between him and Bulkhead. If Breakdown and Wheeljack had ever met on the show and had a similar relationship, I probably wouldn't doubt that idea being true.
Alas, we may never know. Maybe they'll mention something in a future episode that either confirms or contradicts the idea.
And where did you hear that load of crap? There's been no mention of the Dreads in this continuity. The Dreads were made for DOTM.
In Animated, the Wreckers were such a problem for the Decepticons that Megatron made a team specifically to counter them. The Decepticon Heavy Brigade consisted of huge titans like Blackout that could actually hold their own against the Wreckers. So plausibly Breakdown could've been a member of such a Brigade..
Breakdown's personality as a decent fellow - caring about workers, chatting to them, getting along fairly well with Knock Out, Dreadwing, etc; and clearly being grateful to Bulkhead - does strike me as an ex-Autobot, very possibly a Wrecker. His betrayal of the group of "brothers" no doubt caused a lot of casualties, hence Bulkhead's immense grudge towards him.
EDIT: Furthermore, even in DOTM, the Dreads were more like a hunting party, or infiltrators, rather than Decepticon Wreckers.
That's what I've always thought of Breakdown's backstory being like that. It makes sense if he was one of Bulkhead's old friends. However if we do get more backstory it'll end up like that or perhaps something suprising.
Possible. Though I'd like to think that if Breakdown was indeed an ex wrecker he would've made SOME mention of it to Wheeljack. Hopefully we get a Bulk/Jackie-centric episode (provided he survives) to better explain the Wreckers and Breakdown.

I assume this to be the case
All cars are/were autobots.
So Knock Out was an Autobot at one point too? When was that confirmed?
I somehow think that's untrue. I know Knock Out doesn't seem like he's ever been a 'bot, and the Vehicons certainly don't. And if we're talking continuity wide, think of how many 'cons were cars in WFC. Even Soundwave had wheels.
So all Vehicons were once Autobots? That's a load of crap.
Theory: Betrayed the Wreckers and defected to the 'Cons.
No offense, but your just now thinking that?
Breakdown and Bulkhead went to Cybertron Kindergarten back when they were little Mini-cons and Bulkhead bullied Breakdown so bad that in the teen years when Bulkhead was a football star Breakdown gave him a wedgie in front of everyone as revenge and got sent to detention where he meet Knockout who was sent because he got a Decepticon tatoo and they both decided to join the Decepticons.
He could have been.
I would like to see Breakdown's history.
I thought he was an interesting character, but I like it that Transformers Prime actually killed him before everything got resolved.
It reminded me that not everyone on the show is safe.
