Pass Rates By Manufacturer

Taking all the MoT data for every van from 1980 to 2008 we're able to see which manufacturers come out on top. The surprise is that Daihatsu is the number one for MoT with a pass rate of 76.3 per cent, but it's important to take a few factors into consideration here.

Daihatsu was only ever a small player in the van market with just one model, the little Extol. The little urban microvan was never intended to cover big mileages and the chances are that the models MoTd - and there were only around 1000 in total - had covered a handful of miles in comparison to your average Transit.

The same goes for Isuzu, which only has one model in our data - the small selling NKR. If we discount these smaller brands and look at the mainstream van manufacturers, it's Toyota that comes out on top, thanks to the Hiace. Toyota has stopped the Hiace and is replacing it with the ProAce - a rebadged version of the the Citroen Dispatch. It will be interesting to see if this fares as well as the Hiace in years to come.

What might surprise many is how well Fiat performs, coming close behind Toyota with a pass rate of 63.8 per cent. The Italian brand doesn't have a great reputation for reliability but that doesn't appear the case with its van line-up which fares well when it comes to passing the annual MoT - performing better than Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz.

Many Fiat models are shared with Peugeot and Citroen such as the Ducato, Boxer and Relay, which are essentially the same van. However, the two French brands lag behind Fiat. And while a Japanese firm leads the table, one also comes bottom of the mainstream brands - Nissan. It's not helped by the Vanette which is one of the worst performers for MoT pass rates.
