Nissan NV200 - 68.0% pass rate

We're big fans of the Nissan NV200; it's great to drive, easy to park and capable of shifting sizable loads. Sadly, when it comes to the first MoT, the nimble Nissan struggles somewhat with a disappointing 68 per cent pass rate. 

Drill into the data and the Nissan reveals some notable failure rates, with lighting and tyres both ranking highly for failures in the first test. Tyre wear, for example, is 120 per cent worse than the national average for vans registered in 2013.
