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.
It doesn’t matter what year you look at, the data for the Espace shows that it has a below average pass rate compared to other cars of the same age – even on more recent examples. Problems areas are similar to other vehicles – lighting, suspension and braking systems cause the most MoT failures.
