Summary:

I'm planning to buy another one next year. (^_^ )

Faults:

Since I bought the DC1 when it's already 10 years old, I already predicted that the chassis would be very jumpy. That's all, honest.

General Comments:

This car made me feel like I was a part of the car. Engine offers surprisingly good performance even though it's not using fuel injections, not using Honda's diamonds- the V-tec engines and using a single cam. Single cam meant higher top speed - less acceleration, even so, the acceleration's pretty nice. 0-100km/h in 8.5 seconds.

Handles nicely too. I could point it's nose everywhere I wanted to. It's VERY comfortable, and it stays that way.

For a 10 year old car I felt that it was even more comfortable than the 2005 Honda Civic.

However, the brakes- no ABS and the rear wheels are using drum-brakes. No airbags. For those who put safety first, it's a very bad car. For people like me, it's a very nice car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
