Vauxhall Movano - 66.9% pass rate

The Vauxhall Movano is popular with builders and delivery drivers alike, thanks to its impressive 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine and wide choice of bodystyles. However, when it comes to the MoT, the big Vauxhall paints a rather mixed picture. 

Its pass rate isn't particularly good and failure rates for drive shafts, axles and leaf springs are twice as high as other 2013 registered vans. Brake issues are also common, with calipers four times more likely to fail than the average for 2013 vans.
