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.
Maverick was Tom Cruise’s call-sign in Top Gun. Conversely it was also a fairly boring, slow selling SUV from Ford. It might have a low overall pass rate, but sales stopped in 2004, so it only really lags behind modern cars – its pass rate isn’t too different from the average across all cars of the same age.
