(KSL News) -- The Ford Motor Company is expanding its recall of the two mid-size sport utility vehicles.

It's recalling Ford Escapes and Mazda Tributes, manufactured between 2001 and 2005.

Safety tests found if the rear liftgate is left unlocked during a crash, it could fly open.

Earlier this month, the company announced it was recalling a smaller number of the same SUV's because of an accelerator cable problem.
