U.S. Safety regulators are investigating reports that side airbags can inflate for no reason on some Mazda CX-9 large SUVs
Documents posted Monday at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say two owners have complained about the problem. Four people were hurt in one of the cases
left and right airbags go off for no reason while the SUVs were moving.
The probe covers CX-9s from the 2010 through 2013 model years. Mazda sold just over 112,000 of the SUVs from 2010 through 2013.

Mazda said in a statement that it is cooperating with NHTSA.
