MOT Mayhem: The Cars Most Likely To Fail (And How Autoserve Can Help)

The MOT is tougher than ever before, having been made even stricter back in early 2018. New changes are stricter on emissions and have added new fault categories altogether. Here are the cars most likely to fail and how Autoserve can help your car pass…

When you get a car, you’re essentially making the second largest purchase of your life; after a house or a property. As a result, it’s important to make an informed decision. No one wants a car that’s more a liability than a joy; which means you don’t want it constantly sitting in a garage. Unfortunately, even with the latest manufacturing technologies, cars still fail to pass the MOT first time around. This means they either get trapped in garages or written-off altogether. Some are worse than others. These are the cars most likely to fail and pass…

The Most Likely To Fail Their First MOT:

Renault Megane (77.5%)

Fiat Punto (78.5%)

Peugeot 5008 (78.8%)

Vauxhall Corsa (79.4%)

Citroen DS3 (81.1%)

The Most likely to Pass Their First MOT:

Porsche 911 (95.9%)

Honda Jazz (95.3%)

Toyota IQ (94.5%)

Mazda MX5 (94.4%)

Porsche Boxster (94.4%)

In other words, if you own a Citroen DS3 it’s not looking good! Either way, there are clearly a host of popular car models on the roads that are simply failing the MOT at an alarming rate. So prevalent has this problem become that the expression ‘MOT Anxiety’ has gained traction amongst motorists and the automotive industry. This refers to the fear drivers have of facing the test; largely because they worry about the costs of failing it, or worse still, losing their vehicles.

Emma Garland, from MoneySupermarket, has stressed the importance of regular servicing and maintenance. She said, “our data shows that over a tenth of new cars are deemed unsafe to be driven after just three years, which shows how up-to-date you need to be with repairs and services to your car, even if it’s recently purchased. By law, a failed MOT will take your car off the road and could result in a fine of up to £1,000 if the vehicle is used.”
