MoT Data for Inverness

Additionally, with the exception of a few model years, no matter the first year of registration, cars have higher failure rates in Inverness than the average in other areas. Furthermore, all car makers have higher failure rates excepting Renault. It seems the Scottish climate isn’t kind to cars.
