MPVs are often the vehicle that is called upon to get the whole family to the various crucial appointments that come with modern life.

Kia Carens - 76.5% pass rate

Kia Carens that have been used sparingly and have relatively low mileages actually perform very well in their first MoT – those that covered between 10,000 miles and 20,000 miles have an 87.2 per cent chance of passing. Once the miles start to stack up, though, the chance of getting a clean bill of health first time around heads drastically downwards.

The seven-year warranty might keep owners covered in case of major faults, but the biggest reasons for MoT failure are all items that one would expect to suffer with extended use and aren’t covered. The tyres cause 7.9 per cent of Carens to fail, while twice as many fail due to brakes, with 7.7 per cent getting marked down on that front.
