Mazda CX9 2010 Recall

2010 MAZDA CX9 Recall
Mazda is recalling more than 30,000 CX-9's for some sort of wiring problems-- and sounds like you may want to get your car to the dealer pronto as the official recall notice says, "drivers will experience certain functions that are uncontrollable, which will cause seious difficulties in driving increasing the risk of a crash." Yikes, enough said, here's the info:

Mazda has announced a recall of certain models of its CX-9 SUV due to a wiring problem that could cause the driver's seat to spontaneously change position while the vehicle is in motion.

In a defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Mazda explains, "On certain CX-9 vehicles having the power-adjustable seat with position memory function, the seat harness routed underneath the seat cushion may interfere with the front cover bracket which is attached on the front side of the seat cushion. Due to this, the covering of the seat harness may be damaged, the core wire of the harness may touch with the bracket and result in short-circuit. In the worst case, certain functions such as the seat position, height adjustment and seat back reclining may be activated unexpectedly and be uncontrollable, causing serious difficulty in driving."

The recall affects about 30,000 CX-9s from model years 2007 through 2009, but only those built at Mazda's Hiroshima, Japan factory, which can be identified by their VIN number. Mazda dealers will begin contacting CX-9 owners about the recall next week. Dealers will inspect the wiring of affected vehicles, and if necessary, install a new wiring harness cover to correct the defect. Owners who wish to make their own repair arrangements may contact Mazda at (800) 222-5500.
