General Comments:

A super little car with a heart like a lion.

We keep it in Cyprus, and use it when we visit the island. It starts first time, and has run for the last 15 years without any fuss.

We do have it serviced every other year, but it has needed very little attention. New tyres is about the only extra expenditure.

It has developed a fault with the slow running of the engine, and we would like to hear from anyone who could help us identify the fault and give a possible solution. The car starts and runs well, but the engine revs when warm. It seems like the choke is not shutting down. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
