On August 2013, I purchased my first Mercedes R350 BlueTec to prepare for my first baby boy’s arrival.
Moving forward to last Sunday at 7 am in the midst of the ice storm, I entrusted my R350 to drop off my cousin and his family to the airport from Richmond Hill. The vehicle performed flawlessly in the most challenging condition to and from the airport until on the way back when a tree decided to give way in front of me. The road is covered with ice and I thought my car will hit the falling tree and hydro wires and prepared for the worst. This is the first time I’ve depressed a vehicle’s brake to the fullest and the big Benz stopped with complete grace with much room to spare! Nerve wracking nevertheless and I am just glad both me and the vehicle escaped unscathed!
