MOT data reveals Lexus is the pass master

Lexus IS 200d

New research by the Vehicle Operation and Services Agency (VOSA) has revealed which three-year-old cars are the most likely to pass their first Ministry of Transport (MOT) road worthiness test.

Of the 1.2 million cars tested, Lexus was the best-performing brand overall, outclassing the competition with 89.4 per cent of vehicles passing with no remedial work required. The average mileage accumulated by each of these vehicles during this three-year period was just over 30,000.

Further bolstering Lexus’s worldwide reputation for quality and reliability, VOSA’s top ten pass masters comprised twice as many Toyota Motor Corporation models (Lexus and Toyota combined) than any other manufacturer. Parent company Toyota secured fourth place overall, while its diminutive iQ city car achieved the highest individual pass rate of 91.8 per cent.

If your Lexus vehicle is approaching its annual MOT test, why not complete your own pre-inspection routine based on our helpful video guide below.
