I was completely shocked that dealerships or people that are selling these cars are not making people aware that there is no spare tire. That could be completely dangerous for anyone experiencing a flat on a highway or in the dark. I was lucky enough that I bought a 2017 barely used. And the previous owner must have purchased a spare tire kit. I purchased the car only a month ago. And last night I had a flat. I am in Florida where the hurricane has left a lot of debris, such as roof tacks, nails and such... leaving a lot of us compromised with flat tires. So when I got online to find out what the tire was going to cost to have it fixed, I was shocked that cars are now coming with no spares. So I immediately went to my trunk and fortunately, I'm a lucky one. I can't imagine the frustration of purchasing a new vehicle, getting a flat tire, and then going to your trunk to find out that you have no spare. It's ridiculous.
