2014 Mazda 3: Securing a Flat Tire
May 14, 2014
Turns out the folks over at Mazda think of everything. I'm a big proponent of securing heavy cargo so it doesn't fly around in an accident. And loads don't come much heavier in a passenger car than a wheel and tire. Our 2014 Mazda 3 has the right equipment for the job.
This tire strap is there to secure the car's standard wheel/tire combo to the rear seat in the event of a flat. The owner's manual explains the details.
