Citroen 75% pass rate

The worst manufacture for failing the first MoT is Citroen, with a disappointing pass rate of just 75 per cent. This rate is dragged down in some part by the performance of the Grand C4 Picasso (pictured). The seven-seat people carrier has a woeful pass rate for its first MoT, with just 63 per cent of cars passing through unhindered. Other disappointing models from the Citroen range the C2 and C5, with both achieving a 77 per cent pass rate.
