Nearly 31,000 Mazda CX-9 crossovers are being recalled to repair an issue with the driver's seat. Models affected were built during the 2007-2009 model years. According to Mazda North American Operations, improper routing of wires under the driver's seat cushion can lead to a short-circuit that activates the power-adjustment mechanism. This could lead to an inadvertent change in the seating position, height adjustment, or seat back recline while the vehicle is in motion. According to Mazda, dealers will be able to fix the potential problem with cable ties and replacement parts. If you are a late-model CX-9 owner, check your mailbox after the notices go out on March 9.

      this is for my friend's carlos and xmunIz245...your both wrong..while ford and mazda shared engineering idea's... ford does not own mazda...In the 1970's mazda fell into hard time's, so ford bought a small percentage of there company... Again in the 90's mazda was in dire straight's-- Ford increased there share's to 33.9% never owning over that amount.Last year ford fell on hard time's and sold off most if there share's,they currently own just 13.4% of mazda.....And as far as mazda's product's the mazda 6 is assembled in mich,using about 78% imported part's..The tribute assembled in kansas on the same chassis as the ford escape..The cx- 9 intirely in japan using of course there part's...SO again let me thank you first hand for supporting the jappanese economy...

      I'm buying AMERICAN suv's that are actually made in the U.S.! Keep our cars and our jobs IN AMERICA people! Help OUR economy first, and most of all, it will help you too!

      Most Foreign cars are "Made in the USA" and most American cars are now parts made and sometimes assembled in other countries.
      Gotta read the small print.

      Actually, guys, the CX-9 is manufactured solely in Hiroshima, Japan. However, being that Ford still owned Mazda at the time the CX-9 was introduced, I guess it could be likely that it's a part made here in the States.

      How come MAZDA wasn't mentioned in the headline?? If it had been an American car, the name would've been. So glad all you foreign car buyers all think your Japanese crap is so much better than American; the more foreign stuff you buy, the more workers in this country lose their jobs. Obama; are you listening? Your speech to Congress was a wonderful (and was full of everything the American public wanted to hear) but NOW it's time to put up or shut up! Our factories are closing and people are losing their jobs and homes every day. BUY AMERICAN products that are made by AMERICAN workers, and the economy will be able to support itself without shoveling billions of dollars into bailouts and welfare programs. You Mazda buyers will try to ease your consciences by saying the cars are made here, but the bottom line is, the profits are going to Japan.

      I own a 2004 Mazda 3 Sport GT and I'm glad Mazda is having some problems as of late. It seems like everyone loves mazda and the new concepts they come out with recently. I think they are all ugly and too futuristic. The new 6 is styled very weird(somewhere between a family sedan and a sporty coupe, which Nissan has proved is not popular, re: Altima) The 2010 3 is so ugly inside and out that I cannot stand to look at it anymore). My car is such a piece of sh$t I can't wait to get rid of it to buy the new ranger(when it comes out)....lol

      Thank Carlo for educating you "Buy American" fanatics. Ford owns Mazda and makes them with the same parts.
