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.
More than 8,700 Range Rover SUVs from the 2012 model year are being recalled to replace their passenger-side frontal airbag inflators. The recall is spread out over multiple "zones" which may affect your eligibility.
The Range Rover is part of a recall of 54,340 Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles with dagerous Takata airbags. The recall includes about 54,340 sports sedans and SUVs that need the passenger-side airbag inflators replaced. The metal inflators are at risk of exploding because of problems with the explosive chemical ammonium nitrate.
