Mazda Recall For The 2007-09 CX-9

images-61.jpgAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Mazda recently put out a recall for approximately 30,600 CX-9s from model years 2007-09.

The recall is only in affect for CX-9 cars that have power-adjustable seats complete with a memory function.  Apparently, it is possible for the power seats to short-circuit, which may cause seat malfunctions that put drivers in a greater risk of getting into an accident.

Owners of the CX-9 can take their vehicles to a dealer to have the seat harness inspected and the seat frame secured with a tie or cable free of charge.  Mazda claims that they will send out letters to the owners affected by March 9.

Car owners can call Mazda at 1-800-222-5500 or contact the NHTSA car safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.

Unfortunately, you never know when your call will be recalled.  To protect yourself, make sure you have a good auto road service provider in case of an emergency.
