2016 RDX lack of spare tire and jack

Members: Have just purchased a 2016 RDX. Wife promptly picked up screw into sidewall. Was going to remove damaged tire, to take to tire shop. Found no spare or jack in car. Does have a nice plastic filler where the spare tire goes, also comes with an air compressor. Call me old fashion; but I like having a spare even a "Space Saver" if need be. Purchased car through my Credit Union, so did not have opportunity to talk with dealer that car was purchased from. Is this the new trend in autos. I guess one better sign up with Auto Club. Just curious.

This was a factor in making my decision to purchase my 2016 RDX AWD. The AWD models have a spare the two wheel versions do not.

It is a new trend, although I don't believe it's an AWD vs FWD, some AWD's I looked at didn't have it either. The kit is available from a number of places online for around 100 bucks without the tire. It includes a rim, jack and tire iron. Then add your own tire either from tire rack or a local place for a total of around 250.

I have the AWD so I got the spare, but noticed this trend when doing my shopping. In the past cars that didn't have spares ran on run-flats. now they give you a compressor and say good luck. I believe acura does provide road-side assistance in their package, or at least that's what the sticker said. lol
