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.

Fiat 57% pass rate
Fiat has not always had the best of times when it comes to mechanical reliability and the overall picture remains mixed for the Italian manufacturer, with growing issues around its most popular cars. Indeed, the 500 ranks in the bottom 10 cars for failing the first MoT, while the Multipla and Brava also rank as the worst models on record.
