The MoT Files: Bottom 50 MoT performers
Our MoT data reveals a lot of information about the specifics of common MoT failure causes, whether simple bulb failures or more complex and dangerous problems, like worn out brakes or excessive rust. But what are the UK’s worst overall cars for the Mot?
We list the 50 models that have the lowest overall pass rates in the country. We’ve put a filter on so only models of which more than 5000 were tested appear, to filter out rare cars or particularly old models.
The little Seiecento, or 600, was quite a popular car in the UK. Cheap to buy and run, they’re going the way of the earlier Cinquecento, with many tatty ones being broken for spares or scrapped when they fail their MoTs, which is quite likely given their age and increasing mileages.
