U.S.:Mazda recalls 106,000 Tribute SUVs
Mazda recalls 106,000 Tribute SUVs
DETROIT -- Mazda Motor Corp. is recalling 106,000 of its compact Tribute SUVs to fix an engine stalling problem, U.S. federal safety regulators said Thursday.
An advisory on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said vehicles affected by the recall are from the 2001 through 2002 model years, along with certain 2003 Tributes.
All are equipped with 3.0 liter, V-6 engines and can stall during deceleration, posing the threat of a crash, NHTSA said.
Mazda is an affiliate of Ford Motor Co., and the engine stalling problem prompted the recall this week of 363,440 Ford Escape SUVs, the sister vehicle of the Tribute.

My next Ford.....
