The funny thing is, A spare tire is needed for a safety. Call the dealer and ask where the tire is. How long ago did he but the car? The dealer will say "It was there, What did you do with it" I would recommend that you and your son go into the dealer and go with "cool" heads, The moment a voice gets raised the dealer will tell you to take a hike. Just ask the dealer were the tire is on this model and ask him to show you. Best of luck.

Yes, I have never heard of a vehicle that did not come with a spare tire of some kind. Is there a hole for it under the trunk floorboard, and it's just missing?

I assume you are talking about an Audi? Open the trunk, pull up what could be considered the carpet at the back of the trunk. The spare, jack and all the tools are there. If they are not, someone has stolen them. Audi does not give out "donut" tires. They are a German company that believes in honest REAL spare tires and rims.

The TT does not have a spare. However, there is a tire repair kit. If you install good tires, you shouldn't get a flat. Get AAA. There isn't enough room for a spare tire. You aren't paying Audi for tires, so your statement makes no sense. Also, if you paid $30000 for it used, you got ripped off. They are way less expensive than that.

No, that's not correct the 3.2 DSG cars have no spares. They only have tire repair kits. The 180s and 225s have the mini doughnuts. The 3.2 put the batteries back there and that sucks up any space for any spare tire.

Some TT's came with runflat tires. The spare was not included in those models. If someone replaced the tires with other then runflats they should have bought a space saver for under the rear carpet. If there is styrofoam back there instead of a tire you can bet it had runflats.

none came with runflats in the uk the 150,180,225 came with a dounut. the V6 came with a tyre repair kit as the engine was too big for the engine bay, so they moved the battery to the spare wheel well and provided a can of tyre goo and an electric pump. it is only a legal requirement to have a method for the vehicle to be able to be moved to a safe place, therefore spare wheel, run flats or tyre repair.

I have a 2009 Audi tts but did not come with a spare. There is a space for one though. It has a repair kit and came with run on flat tires.

I am so amused to read that anyone owns a car, of any type, year, model age etc., and actually drives it not knowing if the car has a spare tire or not, tools to change a tire etc. How can anyone be allowed to drive a vehicle if they know nothing about it? What a brave new world we are in.
