GET THE SKIINNY ON THE SPARE

The Courier-Mail - Motoring - - Roadside Assist -

It is not only Euro­pean and Ja­panese car mak­ers that are omit­ting full-size spare wheels. I bought a 2016 Ford Falcon XR6, which had only an emer­gency spare. When I queried the sales­man, he told me that a full- size item would not fit in the boot with­out a lot of al­ter­ations. Since then I have found that he didn’t know what he was talk­ing about. Over­all I am very happy with the car, which is very com­fort­able, with a good seat po­si­tion, and eco­nom­i­cal for a six. That’s a deal­er­ship that needs to be shamed, be­cause they know that a full-size spare will fit.
