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’s very important to consider context with all of the cars in this list. While it might be among the bottom 50 cars for overall MoT pass rates, the Rover 200 is an older car, which means there are no modern versions cranking up the MoT pass rate average. Importantly, if you compare the 200 with other cars of the same age you’ll see that it has a pass rate that’s about exactly average.
