Two years ago Land Rover recalled 66,000 SUVs because their doors could fly open while driving. But the feds are now questioning if the recall included enough vehicles and if the software update was an adequate repair.

To repair the problem, Land Rover dealers updated the keyless system software, but NHTSA says owners have complained about their doors opening after the recall repairs were made. Other owners report their doors opened, but their SUVs were never repaired because Land Rover didn't include all the affected vehicles in the recall.
