Don’t Wait till you get a flat to find out that you have no spare

Have you looked in the trunk of your new car since you bought it? Are you assuming there’s a spare there, or a donut? Think again!

A growing trend among car manufacturers trying to meet tougher standards for mileage, is to leave out the spare. You get a flat, pull over, go to pull the spare and find a repair kit instead.

Check out this CBS Boston news report for the full story.

Bottom line, look in your trunk now to make sure you’ve got a spare tire. If you don’t, you’ll want to find out now rather than when you’re stranded on a dark road somewhere at night, especially in winter.
