From what I read in the spreadsheet broke the failures into categories such as suspension, fuel & exhausts, brakes and so on - not specific but a bit of info.

That was one big spreadsheet, must of took alot of manhours to produce that. My Alfa went on a MOT and failed on a tyre it was replaced retested and passed, so iv contributed to the failure rate sorry. It was the inner tyre wall thou.

As has been said on quite a few forums....and in the comments on the BBC site - there are odd nuggets of interest in there, but the data certainly can't be used to indicate whether particular cars are better than others.......no indication of mileage covered, whether the failures are down to vehicle reliability or maintenance issues - lets face it, tyres, wipers, lights, brake wear etc are all down to owner maintenance, nothing to do with car build quality....
