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 Lanos is cheap and cheerful transport, so it’s not likely to end up on the driveway of an enthusiast who dotes on it and makes sure it’s kept in tiptop shape. In other words, it’s not a big surprise that it has a low MoT pass rate. That said, compared with vehicles of the same age its MoT pass rate is pretty much exactly on par with the average.
