    I don't have a problem with MOT failures other than the time it takes to fix them. Our '96 Iveco based camper failed earlier this month on rear anti roll bar bushes and seat belts not retracting properly. ARB bushes less than £6, set of seat belts £400! Daughter's Fiesta failed today, OSF lower ball joint excessive play, NSR brake binding and excessive CO on the emissions, new bottom arm, free off rear brakes and fit new air filter, total cost about £20.

    We submit loads of motorhomes for MOT on behalf of customers and very few have fail issues, sadly I often find brake pads crumbling and tyre sidewalls cracking after the MOT becaue they can't see the pads without removing the wheels (which they're not allowed to do) and sidewall cracking is only a fail if the cord structure is visible!
