    Someday the Takata problem will go away. Today is not that day.

    Land Rover is recalling more than 36,500 vehicles as part of a Takata airbag recall expansion of 3.3 million airbag inflators at risk of exploding when they deploy, even in a minor crash.

    The Jaguar and Land Rover passenger airbags are at risk of exploding due to a combination of age, moisture and the condition of the metal inflators. At least 21 people have been killed worldwide and more than 200 injured.

    The recall includes the 2010-2012 Range Rover in "Zone A" states, and the 2009-2012 Range Rover in "Zone C" states.
