As I see it the entire thing was orchestrated to save the industry time and money.... Increase their profit margins, how discerning and thoughtful can they get lmao. Has anybody checked these days on the price of a spare that will clear Brembo brakes as compared to the cheap little compressor and slimy? I'd speculate they save over 75% compared to and including development of something that could even work.
Yes, a very heavy fine is paid in the name of performance. And though many are gullible and believe anything it seems, I feel the automotive industry is seeing what and how much they can get away with and nobody complains hardly. Oh all the excuses and reasons were well rehearsed.
Now Buick wouldn't dare come without a spare for starters (at least mine). It is compact but at least they made the effort anyways. Imagine I'm coming down the ridge into Mechanic Falls on a hot summer day and pick up a spike on the way. So the tire is totally slashed as I pull over across from the now packed ice cream stand. The oohs and ahhs (this is Boss Mustang now) as I find the pump and slime won't work, with no spare of coarse. It all turns into hilarious all out laughter as the tow truck is on scene an hour later to tow the dam thing away. Now to top things off an old man out there swearing to beat the band (as me) lol. Yup, can't wait to be there now.
