MoT Data for Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock, like most Scottish areas, has a below average pass rate. Steering, suspension and brake related problems are significantly higher in KA postcodes than the national average, while most registration years and manufacturers do worse than they tend to in other parts of the UK.

Subaru and Audi models have slightly above average pass rates in Kilmarnock than they are in the average UK area, but almost every make of vehicle has a higher failure rate. Probable causes are the colder climate, increased use of salt in winter, higher annual mileages and punishing roads.
