Latest MoT Results REVEALED: What is your car likely to fail on? | No thanks

Volkswagen

The Golf Plus at the top of the table is possibly an unreliable entry – chances are the majority of crimes involving that model were recorded in the stats for standard Golf. The Up was launched part way through the year our data covers, too, so its stats might not be fully representative of the cars performance now it is established. The rest of the table is as you’d expect, with older models and vans at the bottom of the table.

The popular Golf is the poorest performing car from Volkswagen, but it isn't an especially bad performer compared to vehicles from other manufacturers and its crime rate will be pushed up by older, less secure vehicles which are still around in their hundreds.
