As they book their next MOT test, Southampton motorists could reflect that well over a third (37%) of cars will fail this compulsory assessment locally, a little higher than the national average of 36.1%. Luckily, with Fixter you're in good hands - we're here to help you with your MOT.
Among the top reasons for not getting through an MOT in the area are lamps, electrical equipment and reflectors, very common causes of failure which in Southampton are behind a fifth of MOTs not passing. Again, this is above the national figure of 17.8%. The second most common cause of failure is poor suspension, although you’re 10% less likely to flunk on this than in the UK as a whole. Brakes will let down 8% of the city’s motorists, compared with 9.5% nationwide.
If your car was registered in 2000, motors registered that year have the city’s worst overall pass rate, at just 45.4%, a statistic that’s 7% higher than the national figure. However, particularly post-2004, pass rates have soared since.
And if your drive is a Daewoo, Chrysler or Talbot, these have Southampton’s highest MOT failure rate by manufacturer. (Conversely, if you’re at the wheel or a Maserati, Ferrari or Aston Martin, your car is among those most likely to pass).
