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.
Renault Megane Scenic 44% pass rate
The Megane Scenic was one of the poorest performers from the 1990s and things didn't improve into the 2000s despite a facelift. The electric parking brake seems a very common problem that causes MoT failure as do drive shafts, front suspension joints and issues with the steering rack and steering arm.
