    When I was looking for somewhere to get my MOT done and saw fixter I was so skeptical about using it as it seemed way too good to be true. So glad I used it now!! Paid £29 for an amazing service. A friendly driver collected my car on time and even brought it back early all whilst I was at work which...

What's an MOT?

The MOT test is how the government checks your vehicle meets national safety and environmental standards. Your car is first tested three years post-registration, then annually, and driving a vehicle without a valid MOT could mean a fine of up to £1,000.

The most common reasons for failing your MOT including lighting and signalling, suspension, brakes and tyres. And nearly a quarter of diesel vehicles reportedly fail their MOTs due to the stricter guidelines on diesel emissions.

MOT time can feel nerve-racking, especially if you rely on your vehicle heavily for work or family reasons. But it doesn’t have to be. At Fixter, we make the process hassle-free with our straightforward, no-nonsense UK-wide service.

How often an MOT needs to be done?

Your car is first tested three years post-registration, then annually, and be aware that driving a vehicle without a valid MOT could mean a fine of up to £1,000.

How an MOT works?

Here’s what our friendly, top-quality service offers:

  • Free collection and delivery of your motor to and from the garage at times to suit you, meaning you won’t need to deal with the garage yourself, or hang around while the MOT is being done.

  • Our upfront, transparent pricing beats most of the competition and local garages hands down, and there are no hidden costs – prices are always well below the UK national maximum for an MOT of nearly £55.

  • A year-long warranty on all parts and labour.

  • Parts are manufacturer-equivalent only.

Smart

Smart is a German automotive brand, established 25 years ago in 1994.

The company is a division of the automotive corporation Daimler AG and operated under the ownership of Mercedes-Benz.

How popular is Smart in the United Kingdom?

Smart isnt’ the most popular brand in the UK, most likely due to appealing primarily to parking-challenged city-dwellers; there are only 96k of their vehicles on the roads of the UK today.

Showing steady growth, however, since their introduction to the UK market in 2003, the trend would suggest that we’re likely to see more of these eccentric looking tiny cars as time goes by.

Smart: Quirky little microcars and subcompacts

Owned by Mercedes-Benz, Smart cars fit into the market you’d expect on first glance. They’re a fun and funky little city car; they’re solid, middle of the road machines, designed to be as versatile as they look.

A Smart car will never fool anyone that it’s a hi-end, luxury vehicle. There’s plenty of glossy plastic and groovy fabrics, yet in the cockpit, you’ll find up-to-the-minute touchscreen media options at the controls. They do come at an inflated price for the small city car market, but by nature of their unique design—there’s nothing quite like them.

Smart cars are cheap to run—but not so cheap to buy

Your Smart ForFour will be more expensive by comparison than its rivals: the Fiat 500, Skoda Citigo, Kia Picanto or Hyundai i10—yet it’s rather hard to pitch the Fortwo against anything because there isn’t anything on the market quite so small. Only the Renault Twizy comes to mind, and that’s barely a car at all.

Once you’ve got one though, your Smart car will cost next to nothing to run with their tiny wheels and low weight. The electric models perform even better with a fuel equivalent of 87mpg.

Smart’s reliability and reputation

Smart didn’t feature as one of the brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018 that we’ve been using to draw comparisons of reliability against other marques—but checking the user reviews gathered by the AA it would appear that most owners have very few problems and that their reliability scores are generally high.

Recent Smart recalls and reliability issues

Various recalls have been made on Smart models throughout their motoring history. The following are a list of the most recent in the UK and Europe.

14/10/2017 – Smart ForTwo, Smart ForFour (2017)

The strength of the left front steering knuckle may be insufficient

29/09/2017 – Smart ForTwo, Smart ForFour (2014–2015)

As a result of the weakening of the braking rope wrench adjustment knob, the hand brake lever travel could be prolonged gradually

24/06/2016 – Smart ForFour (2014–2015)

The anchorage for the rear seat backrest may not be sufficiently resistant

10/06/2016 – Smart ForTwo (2014–2015)

At high vehicle speed, combined with strong wind, the plastic front service hatch can detach from the vehicle and fall into traffic

05/06/2015 – Smart ForTwo (2014)

The steering mechanism screws used for some vehicles may break
