Mazda North American Operations is recalling 8,648 model year 2020-2021 CX-9s with 60/40 split bench second-row seats.
The left-side second-row seat may unexpectedly slide forward during a crash.
A seat that slides forward in a crash can transfer excessive force onto a belted occupant, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Dealers will replace the internal parts of the affected second-row seats free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on November 26, 2021.
Owners may contact Mazda customer service at (800) 222-5500, option 4. Mazda's number for this recall is 5221I.
