MoT Data for Cambridge

Cambridge has mostly green numbers in all of its tables, which is good news for owners in CB postcodes. There are some below average figures in the failure rate by year table, but all on older years with fewer cars tested. 

Aston Martin, Lotus and Triumph models have the highest pass rates, although only a few of each was tested. Rover, Renault and Daewoo are at the bottom of the manufacturer table.
