The MoT Files 2017: Van manufacturers ranked from best to worst

The average pass rate for vans is significantly lower than for cars. That makes logical sense really – vans generally cover twice as many miles as your average car. They also lead hard lives, pounding up and the roads full of tools and equipment.

Isuzu – 64.9% MoT pass rate

Isuzu’s commercial vehicle range consists of pick-ups, rather than vans and most are used by farmers, builders and gardeners. Given its four-wheel drive, most Isuzus lead hard lives, but that hasn't affected the MoT pass rate, with more than six in 10 scoring a pass. Most of those represented in our MoT data are earlier Rodeo modes, rather than the more recent D-MAX that was only launched in 2012.
