There are few things more disappointing than seeing your pride and joy score a big fat fail at its first MoT. Yet, for thousands of van owners, the first test at three years will present a series of costly problems.

Citroen Berlingo - 70.0% pass rate

On average, the Berlingo performs roughly eight per cent worse than other 2013 vans. Many of the MoT failure points are relatively simple to rectify, however, with blown bulbs and failed windscreen washer jets being among the most-common failure points.

Overall, 22 per cent of Berlingos fail the first MoT on lighting and electrical equipment, while just five per cent will be failed due to defective tyres.
