MoT Data for Sunderland

Sunderland isn't a particularly strong performer when it comes to MoT pass rates. Suspension and brake related issues give significantly higher than average failure rates, as do steering problems. 

There are lots of red numbers in the failure rate by registration year and the failure rate by manufacturer table, too. Lexus, Porsche and Honda are the manufacturers with the highest pass rates in SR postcodes, though Honda is the only one of those with more than 1000 models tested.
