I said the same thing...then it happened! Thinking I'll get a spare just in case, and a jack as there is no jack.I was a little concerned when I ordered mine, but I haven't had a flat tire in almost 25 years. I've had slow leaks from a nail, but have always been able to plug it when I got home.
You can't take them seriously if trucks and SUV vehicles are exempt, it is plain dumb!Sup Aussie . Yeah we have it so bad here in NA that these cars don't even get a spare tire for emergencies any more . It must be the trade offs by the Manufacturers to comply with these EPA requirements to meet and exceed fuel efficiecy Standards that our duelly elected officials have deemed apropriate for our environment !
