BusinessWeek has compiled a list of the 14 most recalled new cars so far in 2007. We follow recalls religiously here at KickingTires, but it’s always interesting when someone lays them out like this in order for all to see. Looking at the list of 2007 model year vehicles, what really caught our attention was that four out of the top five were imports and not domestic products, with the Jeep Liberty being the lone domestic.

GM had two vehicles and Ford had just one on the list, and with very low numbers. Chrysler, on the other hand, had three more significant recalls, including all-new models like the Dodge Nitro, Jeep Wrangler and Chrysler Sebring. Who were the worst? Volkswagen and Toyota topped this year’s list. Surprised? Click below for the full list and total number of recalled cars.
