The MoT Files: Bottom 10 Cars from the 1990s
While a newly-passed driver might dream of putting something sporty and shiny on their drive, the reality is very different. Unless their sitting on chair made from fifty-pound notes, most of us have to opt for something cheap and cheerful to get mobile.
That means looking at cars of a certain age - mainly the 1990s. But what should buy if you're looking at cars of this era? Which aren't going to cost you a fortune when the MoT time comes? Here we list the 10 worst performers from cars registered in the 1990s.
Peugeot 206 38% pass rate
Despite only being launched in 1998, the Peugeot 206 is at the top - or rather bottom - of the pile when it comes to the 1990s cars failing their test. In total, 11,184 were put through an MoT with a whopping 6930 failing, a pass rate of just 38 per cent. The common faults being lights, suspension and exhausts. 206 production continued into the 2000s, but this list only covers 90s registered examples.
