Mazda is recalling 174,000 cars in the U.S. due to sudden shifts in seats while driving, according to the Associated Press.

The Associated Press reports say the seat height adjustments can alter at anytime, making it hard to drive. The adjustments links can break or detach, causing the seat to shift at different angles and can potentially cause an accident.

The recall covers the Mazda 2 subcompact from the 2011 model year and the 2010 and 2011 Mazda 3 and Mazdaspeed 3 compacts.

According to the company, dealers plan to inspect the vehicles, install a reinforcement bracket and possibly replace the whole seat unit. The recall will start March 31, 2017.
