MoT Data for Lincoln

Lincoln’s overall MoT pass rate is below average, although not significantly so. The failure rates for most of the common problem areas are slightly higher than average, but tyres and bodywork issues are less common than they tend to be nationally.

The usual suspects sit at the top of the table for pass rates, with Porsche in the number one spot. Porsche models rank highly in almost all areas of the country, but it's only possible to speculate the reasons why – it could be that owners look after them well, or that they do fewer miles, or that they’re just better made.
