What will your car fail its first MoT on?

Booking your car in for its first MOT can be daunting. Will it pass? Will it fail? And if the worst happens, how much will it cost you? We've crunched the numbers for 50 of the UK's top selling cars taking their first ever test, to reveal which models are most likely to fail, and if so, what they'll fail on – so you can reduce the risk of any nasty surprises.

To use the testing tool, simply choose the make of car in the drop down box on the left, and then the model name on the right. Then hit the 'Go' button to see what percentage of cars passed their first MoT in 2013.
