this 2003 series is really a better car. Ride softer due to the Mac Pherson suspension and the ESP allow to drive even on wet conditions with still a feeling of safety.
But the 'automatic' gearshifting still tend to put in 5th and even 6th gear a bit too early. Sometimes one must use the sequencial 'one touch' feature do come back in the right gear.
On the other hand, the auto uphill brake function (0,7 sec. brake holding function) is very useful.
New 2003 bigger engine work like a charm and still allow a 20-25 Km per liter consumption.
