In Manchester, already more than a third (36%) of cars on average are flunking their MOT – almost mirroring the national figure of 36.1%.
Faulty lamps, reflectors and electrical equipment, plus suspension and then brakes, are the top three factors behind MOT failures across the city, causing 19.6%, 11.7% and 8.9% of non-passes respectively. The same top three failure factors apply UK-wide and in that order, with similar figures of 17.8%, 12.1% and 9.5% respectively.
Meanwhile, exhaust, fuel and emissions will let down almost 4% (3.9%) of vehicles locally – identical to the national figure – while tyres fail 8.6% of Mancunian cars, compared with 7.6% nationally.
Makes of car with the best chances of passing in Manchester are MINI, Triumph and Bentley models, while Renault, Daewoo and SsangYong vehicles experienced the region’s highest MOT failure rate.
Cars registered in 2000 showed the worst overall pass rate for Manchester Moots, with 49.6% not making the grade that year. That statistic nationally was slightly more pronounced, at 50.9%.
