Not sure where best to post this, but some interesting info for anyone looking to buy a used car, DVLA / VOSA have release 2007 info showing reasons for MOT failures, listed by make & model.
Some suspect data, but looks useful to see where the weak points are on any car :tup:

BBC :

direct link to VOSA listing (PDF document) :

Retyped into excel format (may not b 100% accurate?)

There's some interesting reading there, can't see why they haven't published it earlier though.

Looks like I'll need to consider a 2004 Ferrari 575M if I want a problem free runabout - unless anyone can find something with a higher pass rate.

Edit: Just noticed a 2004 Rolls Phantom does a little better!
