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.

Chrysler 55% pass rate
Ranked fifth for failing the MoT, Chrysler achieves a poor 55% pass rate, with disappointing results across the board. Indeed, when it comes to failing the MoT, Chryslers struggle with electrical equipment (23%) while around 20% of cars fail due to poor brakes. However, Chryslers are solid cars when it comes to the battle against rust, with just one per cent of cars failing on body or structure.
