    Is this one of the GM autos without a Spare Tire? If so, they lost me in buying one!
    I owned Buick autos for years, but they had a spare tire and some gages for battery, oil, temp, etc.
    You should be able to get some options on these autos.

    @hi100, I can't say for sure until I drive the new LaCrosse, but my suspicion is that it will come with a spare tire. Manufacturers generally delete the spare for 1 of 3 reasons:

    1. Lower weight = better fuel economy
    2. The brake rotors are too large to accommodate a spare tire
    3. There simply isn't room

    Some manufacturers (Hyundai, for example) allow customers to purchase a spare tire as an option.
