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.

Peugeot 54% pass rate
The second French manufacturer to break into the bottom 10 is Peugeot, with a disappointing 54% pass rate. Peugeot has a number of problem models, with the 106, 306 and 405 all performing badly. According to the MoT Files, almost 30% of Peugeots fail on lamps and electrical equipment, while 17% are failed for suspension issues.
