Nissan Primastar - 50.4% pass rate

The years haven't been kind to the Primastar. Effectively a rebadged Renault Trafic, the Nissan panel van has one of the lowest MoT pass rates of any light commercial vehicle on the road, with an average pass rate of just 50 per cent.

Even the newest versions - registered in 2013 - struggle at the first MoT, with a dismal rate that sees just six out of 10 passing the first test. Lighting and suspension problems are the main causes of MoT failure, along with worn out brakes and damaged windscreens.
