Mazda North American Operations is recalling 173,859 2011 Mazda2 and 2010-2011 Mazda3 and Mazdaspeed3 cars to fix a seat adjuster problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In these vehicles, the seat height adjustment lifter links may break or detach from the seat frame. As a result, the seat angle may incline and the driver may be unable to maintain an appropriate driving position, NHTSA said.

Mazda dealers will inspect the seat lifter links and install a reinforcement bracket to the lifter links, or replace the entire seat adjuster unit. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin March 31. Vehicle owners can reach Mazda customer service at (800) 222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 0917B.
