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.
This is another example of an older model that has a lower pass rate because of its age – but compared with other models of the same age it’s not a terrible performer, with models from some years actually doing better than the average for all models of the same age.
