The MoT Files: The first MoT - bottom 10 cars
There are plenty of arguments for and against extending the timescale of the first MoT from three to four years. While the Department for Transport says modern vehicles are more resilient to wear and tear - which is true to an extent, the fact is that one in six still fail their first MoT.
This number would only increase with if vehicles weren't tested for a further 12 months and we could see more unroadworthy cars on our highways. Here are the 10 worst performers when it comes to passing their first MoT.
Citroen DS4 - 73.1% pass rate
DS may have been launched as a standalone brand, but back in 2013 these models were still part of the Citroen range. And not doing at all well in their first MoT with more than a quarter failing. Tyres were one of the main causes while the DS4 suffered from issues with brake hydraulics too.
