Yeah, my fear is it would only fit in the passenger seat. I have thought of buying a spare tire, mainly to reduce worrying on long trips, but I'll have to get the wife in better shape so she can make the long walk into town.i admit i have not :wall:
if it's completely out of the air - i think/hope it will fit.
worst case - put it on the passenger seat.
my car cover in the trunk - so i can use it for wrapping/interior protection.
Is there a jack in Acura?I know this lack of a spare can be somewhat scary at first.....BUT....most cars are doing away with them. Better get used to it. Just bought a brand new 2018 Acura TLX sedan. Guess what.....NO SPARE. Comes with a pump and a can of sealant. It's the wave of the future for all cars, without a doubt.:cheers:
No jack either. Goop and a pump. I'm afraid it's the wave of the future. Makes me want to invest in a towing company. How can that not be good for that kind of business. My last flat was only a couple years ago and it was because I ran over a small hunk of metal on the Interstate. Sliced the tire open and it was flat before I was even able to get off the side of the road. I did have one of those small spares with that vehicle so AAA showed up in about 15 minutes, put it on for me and directed me to the nearest tire store since I had another 700 miles to go and the donut wasn't going to get it done. That's happened more than once to me, same scenerio, one on the interstate and one local. Neither in my Cayman fortunately. Unlucky, I guess.:cheers:Is there a jack in Acura?
They all know that that goo sealant is pretty much useless, but it gives them legitimate excuse to save $$. Because that can cost 50 cents, spare costs 50 dollars. So here, they just saved $49 while raised the price of the car anyway! Brilliant!
Honestly, last time I had a puncture that required a spare was in 2001... And I drive about 40K miles per year. Had a few other punctures - I was able to make to the shop after inflating the tire. So in summer I actually leave the spares at home even in the cars that still have them - to not haul extra weight
Of course it won't. But in that rare case - you just call a tow truck...I also have Dynaplug - which i've used successfully twice on friends' cars.

You just plug the whole and pump it back with the compressor.
This will not though help with the side wall tear.
Er ... that will LARGELY depend on the car's use. I will not tolerate a daily/all purpose car if it doesn't have a spare tire. Just one more in the long list of the reasons BMW lost me as a customer. I drive Golf GTI daily and can report that it indeed has spare tire. Not as good a spare as my Golf TDI had, but still a spare.I know this lack of a spare can be somewhat scary at first.....BUT....most cars are doing away with them. Better get used to it.

+10If you switch tires to run flats, you might as well switch the Boxster to a Corolla while you are at it. Those things are abominations.
