I have driven my Fusion energi for 3000 miles. I have had one flat and two sidewall tire failures , caused by BRUSHING curbs in parking lots. OF COURSE NO SPARE. Many hours waiting for road service and over $700 spent. This car cannot be driven anywhere safely. Unlike other manufacturers no compact spare is available and a full size spare will not fit in trunk. Obviously Ford has not considered customer convience or safety. Never get vehicle with no spare tire
How is it the cars fault that you hit curbs? If you hit a curb enough to damage a tire, then its not the car its the driver, also many other hybrids don't have spares, it saves weight, and they have fix a flat to limp you home, spares aren't supposed to be used as an extra wheel/rim. If you hit curbs so frequently maybe you should have bough an escape hybrid so it would go over the curbs, or invest in learning how to drive better so you don't hit curbs.Ford didn't make the car drive into the curb, you did.
