RE: A place for everyone's driving story.
Sorry to hear about your mishap in the DVP last Sat. I can totally relate to your story as I too live in Toronto and am very aware of the recent tragedies on our highways/roads. I can empathise with your situation as I know exactly where that dealership is and where you have entered the ramp.
I think it's the dealership's responsibility to provide a demo which is drivable without incurring any inconvenience, and god forbid, danger to the customer. In this case, the demo should have been checked first for gas/tire pressure (visually) before being handed over to you. If it had been me, I would have given the salesperson hell for putting my life in danger.
I wish you much luck in your future test drives and I bet you'll check that the demo has gas.
I too drive an 05 C230 Kompressor. So far, the car has behaved itself and I'm quite pleased with it.
