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 Laguna 44% pass rate
The Laguna is a model no longer sold by Renault in the UK - instead the French brand is focussing on smaller cars like the Clio and Captur. That said, it was very popular in the 2000s, although Renault's less than glowing reputation for build quality has some basis according to this result. A myriad of suspension and steering problems are the big issues for failing the MoT.
