The MoT Files: The 10 worst manufacturers
The bottom 10 manufacturers is one of the most important lists in the MoT Files, because it outlines the worst fail rates for all manufacturers for all years (1980-2013).
It’s important to bear in mind that there are a number of ‘zombie manufacturers’ in this list, with the cars continuing even though the companies have long since died. However, this note aside, the majority of firms in the bottom 10 are still very much alive and some of the results surround some of the UK’s most popular cars.

Daewoo 45% pass rate
Daewoo is the perfect example of a ‘zombie car manufacturer’. Indeed, Daewoo Motors hasn’t produced a cars since 2004 (when General Motors merged the firm into Chevrolet urope), yet there are still thousands of cars on the road, with 72,000 MoT tests registered between 2012 – 2013. As you can imagine, the condition of these remaining Daewoos are poor and the 45% pass rate is the worst for any car manufacturer in the UK.
