The handlepost of a Dahon of that vintage won't feel as stable as a new Tern. The Tern handlepost assembly is very stiff, and contributes to a very "tight" feel. My 2013 Tern Verge S11i feels about as solid as my road bike. My 2006 Dahon Mu XL is noticeably less so, though it was a big improvement over my earlier Dahon Helios XL.
Dahon's current bikes are undoubtedly much improved over those from 2007.
