really "many" can you please name 10 serious cars without a spare tire or RFT?
Before challenging me, you should have Googled first, because there are news articles out there that discuss the trend of manufacturers no longer including spare tires in their new cars, and substituting them with fix-a-flat kits:

BTW the last article says "one out of seven cars sold today" in this country does not come with some sort of spare tire. As many cars as are sold in the US, that would fit my definition of "many."
But if you insist on a list, here it is at http://www.aaa.com/AAA/corpcomm/socialm ... -Tires.pdf which a simple Google search would have also yielded you. There's a lot more than 10 on that list in which a fix-a-flat kit is standard in lieu of a physical spare. Many of those same cars, particularly the lower end models, don't provide for some sort of physical spare or RFT as even a factory option.
