The MoT Files: Top 10 Cars from the 1980s
Think you know which of the cars from the 1980s are reliable MoT heroes? Think again. There are plenty of surprises in our list of the top ten MoT pass rates from the decade that taste forgot.
Perhaps one reason is that bad examples of cars like the MGB and Jaguar XJ-S have been weeded out, leaving just the most solid and best-kept examples for buyer's to cherry pick. To qualify for our list, at least 1000 examples had to be tested for a model to make our list.
Range Rover 67.6% pass rate
Another surprise on the list? Perhaps, but like the Jaguar XJS, bad Rangeys have fallen by the wayside leaving the better ones on the forecourt. Those that do fail tend to do so on lamps and brakes, but there is the inevitable rot to deal with as well.
