Are spare tire and jack provided in a Kia Soul when you purchase one?

Asked by May 02, 2016 at 05:50 PM about the 2013 Kia Soul Base

Question type: General

I bought a 2013 Kia Soul at Gossett Kia in Memphis Tenn.and asked why the
car does not have a spare or jack.They told me that Kia Motors stop providing
spare tires and jacks to their cars in 2008 and I just wanted to ask if this is a
true statement.

Like many other buyers of a 2012 Kia Soul, many are dismayed to learn there was no spare tire and jack included with the car--instead, there is a can of sealant and a (tiny) air compressor. A weight saving "trick" weight increases MPG, Thanks to CAFE fuel economy' same "trick" with 0-20 oil use!~~~~~~In October of 2012, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued joint final rules to further improve fuel economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions for passenger cars and light trucks. Since NHTSA is required by Congress to set CAFE standards for no more than five years at a time, it issued final standards for model years 2017 to 2021 and presented non-final “augural” standards for years 2022-2025. The non-final standards were presented in the interest of aiding manufacturers in future product planning and of harmonization with EPA’s greenhouse gas emission standards. NHTSA will propose and establish CAFE standards for MYs 2022-2025 through a comprehensive future rulemaking that will be informed by the latest available data and information.

You know what I'm all for protecting the dang environment but excuse me, it really pissed me off when I had to rush off to work and I'm stranded with a stupid flat tire....now if anyone would start thinking outside the box....a stupid tire maintenence pack is NOT and I repeat NOT going to fix a "blow out" Once a tire is destroyed a stinking fix it kit is NOT going to do anything hello!! I am annoyed that I have to be be stranded if this ever happens because of cry baby green house emission officials getting in my way of fixing my own tire!! I love my KIA but this is a huge problem. I like many others do not have time to wait around for a tow truck because I don't have a spare tire and a jack in my trunk. So now I'M going to take that stupid Styrofoam compartment out of my car and I'm putting a stinking spare tire in my trunk and I'm going to find a jack that fits the specialty lug nuts and I'm going to remain self sufficient and take care of my own tire problems when they arise. So that's all I'm done being annoyed now. Just thought someone might possibly agree with me......thank you...
