Frustrated with SP23 spare

Asked by G. Wallace

We own a 2002 Mazda SP23, which is a great car except for the space saver spare wheel. Within a three-year period we have had three punctures and a buckled wheel, the latter occurring on a holiday when the tyre stores were closed. I cannot understand how carmakers were allowed to equip their cars with these useless makeshift spares.

You've copped a bad run, that's for sure, perhaps you should consider buying a full sized wheel and tyre to use in place of the space-saver when travelling.
