The fact that it "just fell onto his foot" while he was test driving it may be entirely true. HOWEVER, it most likely cracked/broke from him using the steering wheel as a grab handle as stated. It was probably held in by tension or just a snugly fitting shape, then when he started driving it wiggled loose and fell out. Just because it fell out during the test drive, doesn't mean it broke during a test drive. This is absolutely their fault and I would be letting them know that I would pursue any means necessary to have this problem made right.
As $h@ki said, you owe them nothing in this situation. If I've had multiple visits to a shop then that's more of a reason for them to make it right. They made me happy before, I returned to give them more business. Once they take advantage of that, it's all over. The more business I've given them in the passed, the more angry I'd be.
