Mazda is recalling more than 100-thousand sport utility vehicles in the U.S.

The recall affects the Tribute SUV from model years 2001 to 2004.  Mazda says potential rust on some frame parts could cause a steering problem.

The SUVs were originally sold in 20 cold weather states where road salt is used heavily in the winter.

So far there have been no reports of any accidents or injuries related to the problem.
