Default Re: Road test

I lived in the USA for 6 years and it was a semi regular occurrence to see 4x4's on their side next to the interstate. This was especially the case in winter where drivers would assume just because their car could get to 60mph in the snow it could stop from that speed. I think in the summer it was probably a situation like the 'elk test' that flummoxed the original A class, seeing an obstacle and over reacting with sharp steering inputs on a top heavy vehicle.

In this case it looks on a nice day in a dealership carpark, so this woman probably shouldn't be driving a wheelbarrow let alone a car.

Bad crash!

Sales guy from Mercedes does not look happy quite right as well!


Does the sales guy have an Aussie accent sounds like it?

GLE350 SUV $60,000US the SUV would have cost more here in Australia!

He sounded like an Aussie.
It would cost about 3 times the price here.
