Spare tire vs tire repair kit
By edborne on


2013 Cadillac SRX Performance 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


a metal plate struck one of the rear tires. got a flat tire. when called for roadside assistance (RSA), I was asked do your car came with a donut spare tire or with a compresor repair kit? To my surprise, it came with the C-repair kit ;-( It was a nightmare!!! RSA was no helpful, a tow truck was going to take 1.5 to show up,...4hrs later I went home, left the car in my work place parking overnight. How come when the dealer sell you the car does not tell you about the NO spare tire ;-( This is ridiculous!!! I am so disappointed that a so expensive luxury car does not come with a spare tire. Today the dealer is going to hear me... sorry, I am really upsep ;-(

Suggested Improvements

place a spare tire instead of a tire repair kit.

My dealer told me that my SRX had a repair kit before purchasing. Since I am over 70 I don't want to change a tire on some dangerous road. In most cases the tire gets low presure because of a nail and with the tire sensors on the SRX you are warned before havig a blow out. The repair kit allows for adding air without the danagerous task of changing the tire. All in all your dealer should have told but I prefer the repair kit.

I understand your concern, a vehicle costing this much should come with more than a repair kit. It in fact should come at least optional with run flats. My best advice is that next time you are looking at spending that much money on a vehicle, you may want to do a little more research into what safety and convenience features it offers. I can see both sides though, and the reason you would be upset. I myself could have easily overlooked something like this too. And here's hoping Cadillac will hear your cry for help. Best wishes.
