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 1990s examples of the Mazda 626 don’t have particularly strong pass MoT test results, bringing down the car’s average. However if you look at cars registered in the early 2000s you’ll see that they perform a little better than other cars of the same age.
