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.
Given the fact Rover hasn’t made any cars for around 10 years, it shouldn’t be a massive surprise to see a few in the bottom 50. The 400 is an older model, superseded by the 45, so those MoT tested in the period our data covers would typically be worn out, high mileage cars.
