— A Mazda CX-9 recall is announced for more than 8,600 model year 2020-2021 CX-9 SUVs equipped with 60/40 split adjustable-type second-row seats.
Mazda CX-9 SUVs equipped with second-row captain seats are not affected by the recall.
On some of the vehicles, the driver-side 60/40 split-bench second row seats may slide forward during collisions, causing the seat belts to transfer a higher force to the occupants.
An occupant could be injured by the seat belt instead of the belt protecting the passenger, and Mazda says there is no warning to indicate any problems until they occur.
Mazda CX-9 recall notices should be mailed November 26, 2021, and dealers will replace the internal parts of the second-row seats.
Mazda CX-9 customers with questions should call 800-222-5500 and ask about recall number 5221I.
