Re: Test results
NCT test explained
In UK we do not have the side slip or suspension imbalance as measured items.
Though both could and likely would fail if the car was leaning, crabbing, excessively bouncy or obviously out of track.
Not sure I've ever seen brake ovality measured and IIRC, fail level for brake efficiency is 50% on fronts
Otherwise, very similar.
On yours, check your tyre tread depth, that would be concerning me, 3mm isn't unlawful in UK (1.6mm minimum) but is getting to the stage where aquaplaning in wet is far more likely.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
