Car most likely to fail its MOT has been confirmed – it’s bad news for families

The car most likely to fail its first MoT is the Citroën C4 Grand Picasso, testing centre figures reveal.

The mechanics’ reports show the failure rate of the vehicle is a shocking 22 per cent.

Also doing badly are the budget Dacia Sandero, the Ford Galaxy, the Vauxhall Insignia and even the prestige Jaguar XF.

Renault’s Megane, which came bottom of the table three years in a row, is now the ninth worst.

German and Japanese cars scored the highest, with the Honda Jazz named the best performing car – just six per cent failing their first MoT.

The annual test is designed to make sure vehicles are safe, roadworthy and comply with exhaust emissions tests. But it does not have to be taken until they are three years old.

The figures from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency relate to motors ­registered in 2015 which had their first test last year.

James Ruppert, editor of Free Car Mag, says the figures do not take account how well owners cared for vehicles before their first test or how many miles were on the clock.

He said: “It’s a big win for perceived German build quality because you get what you pay for with Audi, VW and Mercedes.
