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.
Many of the cars on this list have low pass rates because they are old, worn out and past their best. The 807 is actually quite a recent car – and even newer models from 2008-2010 have significantly lower than average pass rates when it comes to the MoT test.
