Audi 90
328 cars tested, of which 175 failed their MoT for an overall failure rate of 53.4%

The Audi 90 is an HJClassics favourite, thanks to its sweet handing (in quattro form) and warbling five-cylinder engine, but clearly it has a few issues when it comes to passing the MoT. Main failure points seem to be suspension and drivetrain - a combination of typical '80s corrosion and wear and tear. Still a great car - just take care when buying.
