hi100 Posted: 6/23/2011 10:56am PDT 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. Kurt Posted: 6/23/2011 1:03pm PDT @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.
