So my wife just bought a 2011 Chevy Malibu LTZ.

It has absolutely everything... except a spare tire. They give you a tire inflator and a can of goo instead.

What good is that supposed to do you in a blowout? I hope this trend doesn't spread. I'm off to look for a spare tire kit. (grumble) Does anyone else find this insane?

Insane ? No ....they charge more for a car and build them cheaper...that is a sound business model.
I would like to know what is the next thing that used to be standard on all cars that they will be made smaller cheaper or just dropped all together.
