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 850 is another older car that will typically have covered high mileages. Wear and tear begins to take hold as vehicles like this get older and older, so the likelihood if items failing the MoT test increases. The 850, along with many cars in this list, isn’t a surprise entry.
