The MoT Files: Bottom 10 Cars from the 2000s
The 2000s may not seem that long ago but our list of the 10 cars most likely to fail the MoT shows that there are plenty of hangovers from the 1990s with models that were only on sale for a short time in the new millennium before being replaced - the Ford Escort being a prime example. As with the rest of our lists we've set a minimum limit of 5000 MoT tests to show a more realistic picture and to eliminate very niche makes and models.
Daewoo Matiz 43% pass rate
The Matiz became a Chevrolet in the mid 2000s when Daewoo folded and was bought by General Motors. As a Daewoo though it hasn't fared well in the MoT test with a pass rate of just 43.1%. There's a catalogue of reasons for failure with anti-roll bars a particular concern along with suspension arms along and body structure issues.
