I had a rental car for business use this week, a 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix.
I was looking through the manual trying to find out what something meant on the information center, when I came across a section that said:
"Your new Pontiac does not come with a spare tire. Instead there is an electric air pump in the trunk which plugs into the power outlet"
I looked into the trunk and sure enough: No spare!
I’ve been driving for well over 30 years. Almost every time I’ve had a flat tire it was a case where the tire couldn’t be pumped up (punture, broken valve, etc.).
Having a pump when the tire has a hole in it is about as much value as a box of bullets and a broken gun.
It’s been 3 years since I bought a new car (also a GM) and it came with a spare tire. What the hell is the deal with this shit?:eek:
