Ford is recalling 230,000 minivans in 20 cold-weather states, including Pennsylvania, and Washington, to fix rust problems that can cause the third-row seats to come loose.

The company says the recall affects Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans from the 2004-2007 model years. They were sold mainly in Canada and U.S. states where salt is used to clear roads in the winter.

Ford said rust can weaken the mounting brackets that hold the removable seats to the floor. The company says no crashes or injuries have been reported from the problem.
