Mazda North American Operations is recalling 7,854 model year 2018 CX-9s.
The wiring harness may disrupt electrical communications and disable the passenger front airbag, turn signals, and/or engine starting system.
The passenger front airbag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury. Inoperable turn signals prevent the driver from signaling to other drivers, increasing the risk of crash.
