According to Toyota of Europe president Shinichi Sasaki, the continuing escalation in vehicle complexity is to blame for the automaker's increasing number of recalls. The executive points to a rise in safety equipment and engineering factors that have led to the unscheduled service bay visits, not slipping quality standards.

Is Sasaki correct, or is this simply a matter of corporate spin? Sound off in 'comments.'
